We miss you Ammi

smiling mama

It is 5 years ago today that my mother went to sleep and never woke up. I remember the sense of disbelief that pervaded us as the doctor told us that she had passed away. How was that possible? She had always been there through every moment of our lives taking care of us, loving us unconditionally, supporting us in every task we undertook, encouraging us, protecting us from all the hurt and hypocrisy that existed in the world, opening our eyes to the beauty and joy that surrounded us. She was the glue that held us together. She was the person who showed us what selflessness was and how we too could be good human beings.

Ammi never had an ill word to say about anyone. That ready smile and gentle warm affection with which she welcomed all our friends, made her a favourite with everyone. On being told that someone was coming to visit, she cooked for them, within no time, a spread that was absolutely out of this world. She listened, she comforted, she counselled. She was not only the best mother in the world, she was also our best friend.

Her sense of humour never left her – not even through the worst periods of her illness. Her patience, her ability to bear the worst kind of pain and smile and say she was fine, made us love her all the more. She was an angel sent from heaven to care for us and teach us the meaning of love and sacrifice.

Ammi, we miss you oh so much and yet even though you are physically no longer with us, you live in our hearts and everything you ever said or did, guides us as we go through life. Thank you for being who you were and for making us who we are. We are grateful that we were given the opportunity, all in our own ways, to let you know how much we loved you and how very much you meant to us.

    God Bless Her…

    Though she must be proud to have seen you progress in life so much – most if not all credit must go to her for raising you so well.

    God Bless Her

    May Allah bless her soul 🙂

    She has just moved to another dimension … where we shall be following her. May her deeds, desires and wishes for the left here gets fulfilled – mothers do know about the unexpressed or expressed love that her children have for them… dont worry about that!

    May Allah(SWT) Bless her

    Parents always live with us in the form of values and principles they teach us. We can often see their reflection in ourselves 🙂

    I’m missing my father today as he passed away around 15 years ago and his birthday falls on 1st April

    May Allah bless her soul. Ameen

    M – O – T – H – E – R
    “M” is for the Million things she gave me,
    “O” means Only that she’s growing old,
    “T” is for the Tears she shed to save me,
    “H” is for her Heart of gold,
    “E” is for her Eyes with love-light shining in them,
    “R” means Right, and right she’ll always be,
    Put them all together, they spell “MOTHER” a word that means the world.

    Thanks Awab, Asma, Mansoor, Fariha, Tania and Meter down – I appreciate the sentiments and the prayers.

    @Fariha, try what I do – think of all the happy times you had with your father. Honour his memory and celebrate his life. Take care.

    MOTHER…. When my Grand Mother died my father said now I have to be very careful as the shadow which saved me from thick and thin of life has gone…

    Mothers are the most loving and caring and losing them is not mended by anything in this whole wide world….

    May God bless her soul.

    Don’t worry, you shall meet her soon.

    May Allah Almighty Bless her with all his Mercy and Blessings…
    Surely it is a loss that can never be compared … neither a person so important to us can ever be replaced by any other person.

    That’s the beauty of uniqueness, which has been gifted to us by Allah…

    May Allah also bless you and your family, and through your mother’s prayers, may you all have a blessed and wonderful life.


    All the very best to you and your family.
