A few hours ago I heard the sad news that the brother of a young woman I've known since I was ten has been missing since Saturday.
Ya Rab, Ya Allah please ensure the safe return of this father, husband, son and brother to his family's embrace. Ya Allah please ease the ache within the open arms of his loved ones waiting for his embrace. Ya Allah please ease the aches and fears that passing through the minds of those who are counting the seconds that pass from when they last saw him.
I am blessed. We are blessed. I know where my brothers are tonight. One is safe at home fiddling around in his room next to mine. The other is safe at his home with his wife.
