20 April.. what a black monday

Posted: April 28, 2009 in feelings, inside out, sad me

he was supposed to turn 60 in June. God had other plans.

mom texted sis and i saying he’s tired, and that we should come down and see him.. hopefully when he sees us he will feel better. we did not even set foot in the plane when we got the call that he had passed. i havent seen dad in 3 years, and sis hasnt seen him since start of 2008. the flight was a blur really.. once we got there my cousin picked us up, took us to the hospital where dad passed.. we had to say goodbye to one of the most amazing people and one of the greatest fathers who ever lived in the morgue.. mkaffan. ice cold. yet smiling. he passed away smiling. i still cant believe i have to say allah yer7amo every time i mention my dad.. he did not get to see me in white, never will see my children.. but im sure he will be watching over us all. he always was our guardian. our protector.

please send out a prayer when you read this. Allah yer7amak w ye7sen eleik ya rab.

    Dear dear one, I’ve been thinking of you since reading this yesterday (comments wouldn’t load).

    May the God of all comfort be very near as you work through the numbness of this loss and pain. May He hold you close as you weep. I am praying for you.

      got a lot to deal with at the moment. altho was thinking today to write sth bout hypocrites. but thought id sleep on it. been a very gloomy mood lately in my little box.

  26. thanks everyone for your prayers, i appreciate it.

  27. Genial says:

    was lead to ur blog thru a bunch of different blogs
    i had to stop here and recite a prayer for him
    allah yer7amo

  28. Marvin says:

    Okay, enough silence, Dima! Brighten the world with your wondrous intellect. A few pithy words, at least. 😉

  29. BuJ says:

    My happiness as a result of finding this blog is shattered with this sad news. I’m so very very sorry. Allah yir7amo as I’m sure he’s in a better place. Weirdly I been thinking a lot about death in the last 48 hrs. First it was sheikh Zayed’s 5 year anniv (hijri calendar) then, I wanted to visit my grandma’s grave yesterday but spent most of the day in another graveyard coz my boss’s aunt passed away, she raised him it seems. Very sad. Anyway, dying in Ramadan is the best way to go.

    I’m happy that your Dad (Allah yer7amo) left with a smile. I wish we get that honour when it’s our time. God Bless Him.
