Du’a – For my Mother

images (3)

(Dedicated to my mother Mrs. Mariam Nagaria who we lost on 12 June 2014)

There’s unexplainable anguish,
And unbearable pain!
My heart feels heavy while,
I stare around in vain!

I am in a state of denial,
I experience agony,
I want to escape the truth,
Oh Allah, I want to flee!

The hand that rocked my cradle,
Is not in the world, no more!
I can’t change what’s happened,
As it was your will, I know!

But the reality is killing me,
Agonizing, this pain is so much!
My heart seems to tear apart,
Nothing to console me, as such!

I feel I have lost my shelter,
I feel so insecure,
My mother was my refuge,
She was my Jannah‘s door!

Her voice echoes in my ears,
I can still feel her touch,
Her beautiful smile and face,
I can’t forget, It’s really tough!

Although my ‘Ma’ has departed
To her abode that’s final,
I want to acknowledge,
The goodness of her survival ….

Her beautiful patience,
Her demeanor that was lively,
Her kind words and deeds,
Her dua‘s that came timely!

“TO ALLAH WE BELONG,
AND TO HIM WE SHALL RETURN!”
Oh Ummi, I miss you badly,
While you submit to His summon!

I know you are in a better place,
You are in Allah’s perfect care,
You have finally met your Creator,
You are much happier there!

May Allah lighten up your grave,
And may He shower His mercy,
On you, O Ma, so you may,
Reach eternal bliss and be…

A resident of the Paradise,
His rewarded and blessed one,
May you be granted the highest rank,
In your journey, that has just begun!

Aameen.
(Dedicated to my mother Mrs.Mariam Nagaria whom we lost on the 12th of June, 2014.)
