In this dark hour of sadness no human words can console the bereaved family. Let's pray, may Allah (SWT) grant the departed soul eternal peace in ‘Jannah’ and give strength to the family to bear this great loss.
Abdul Kareem's family has lived a life of misery for the past two years after he had a stroke that paralysed him partially. Abdul Kareem had been living in Dammam for many years. It had been his wish to bring his family to the Kingdom. It remained a dream for him for many years as it is true with scores of expatriates in the Kingdom. However, by the grace of Almighty Abdul Kareem was able to establish a tailoring shop of his own that allowed him to bring his family to the Kingdom. But the destiny had something different in store for him. Soon Abdul Kareem suffered a stroke that left him paralytic with no one to support family. At this critical juncture his courageous wife stood up to face the challenge. She realized the futility of returning home as she herself has to take care of him, so decided to stay here in Dammam and daringly took up her husband’s profession with skills she had learnt from him. With the mercy of Allah SWT and with the help of some well wishers she was able to take care of her children and ailing husband for the past two years.
Now,with the death of her husband, and with no sponsor for herself , she has to return home to face the daunting task of bringing up her four young children, out of which the eldest Mohammad Zeeshan (13) is a mentally challenged child.
