This article rekindled another very painful barbaric incident.I had a real young sister who passed away at 37 years from a massive heart attack.She had asthma for some years.In 2005 she left behind two sons and one daughter.Her youngest son was 3,and her daughter was 6 .The oldest son was 12.My brother in law remarried in Jehlum and moved to Lahore.

    My sister sons were in the Model Town Mosque on 28th May 2008.I watched the event live on Geo and MTA.I saw on one website my sister sons Usama then 17,Sermed 8 running for their lives. Sermed was without shoes.I thanked Allah for their lives. Their real TayaJan (big brother of their father)
    was martyred in DarulZiker Mosque.Our respected national president Malik Lal khan of Canada Jamaat remembered them.There was extensive media coverage all over the world.About 86 people received the honour of martyrdom. They were buried in Rabwah with dignity and devotion.Tears would well up watching those burials.For safety and security reasons women were not in the mosques.They had their sons of all ages,their brothers,husbands,fathers,paternal and maternal grand fathers.My Nana Jan (maternal grand father)Mr.Fazal Kareem would an occasional Imam in Darul- ziker.My maternal grand father had passed away in 1985.
    My sister sons are waqaf -nau. Their TayaJan Mr.Rasheed was an engineer,Moosi,dedicated member of Lahore Jamaat.He left behind a widow a rightous doctor with three daughters.They are in Vancouver.My Nana Jan name is mentioned in the history of Lahore Jamaat. He was a scholar,an English Teacher.True lover of Allah and HolyQuran. A dedicated learned person who had trained my mom and my older brothers.She was on his footsteps,brilliant in mathematics,arithmetic,trigonometry,English and Urdu.

    My mother passed away last year in December from kidney failure.She was on dialysis for the last four years.My mother was very patient patient.One day I asked her the secret behind her exemplary patience.She told me that she recites surah AlFajar daily.She told me her father made her memorize in grade nine.I also try to do the same.
