“The eyes are shedding tears and the heart is grieved, and we will not say except what pleases our Lord”
Recently a beautiful friend of mine, Holly. Passed away. May Allaah make her grave spacious, forgive her for her sins and grant her His highest level of Jannah Aameen.
Holly was a close friend and companion to many. We are heartbroken that she is no longer with us. I will miss her immensely and I hope we see each other again in Paradise Aameen.
She was a writer here at Mariam Poppins when we had a magazine. She also wrote post on our Facebook page and help me with so many things in my life. ماشاء الله
