1. Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji’un I was so sorry to hear about Nani’s death, may Allah grant her the highest rank in Jannah. Ameen. And may Allah keep you, Masood bhai and your families safe. I know it’s probably so distressing to write about your experiences but I really hope it helps others to see that this is a REAL disease and that it can affect anyone whether they have symptoms or not.

    1. Ameen summa ameen. Jazak’Allah khair, Humaira. Thank you for always being there for me. Just a couple of months ago, one of Masood’s acquaintances pointed at Masood’s mask and told him there was longer a need to wear it because “corona is gone.” A month later, the second wave descended upon us. Seriously, some people who haven’t personally experienced COVID or have a loved one go through it choose to remain clueless and ignorant. I keep telling such people that being careful is not just for yourself, its for everyone around you. Not everyone is young and healthy, and our carelessness may cause them pain and suffering.

  2. Oh my Gosh!!!! I am sad to hear of Masood’s nani. May Allah grant her Jannat ul Firdous. Your experiences are eye openers for everyone.

    Being calm is definitely the best thing to do. Freaking out is not going to change anything.

    Happy that the rest of the family is doing well. Stay safe guys….

    1. Ameen summa ameen. Jazak’Allah khair for your kinds words and duas. Yes, alhumdulillah, the rest of the family is safe. Although the news say that COVID cases are finally declining here in India, we still receive calls from friends/distant relatives of someone getting a positive report.

  3. May Allah grant her Jannah, and give all of you sabr and contentment. And may this virus dissipate and disappear from our planet.

  4. Oh Nadia. Thank you so much for sharing your story despite how hard it must have been to write it. You are a generous soul for helping others gain some insight into this tragic experience. I offer my deepest condolences for your nani’s passing. May she be granted the highest place in heaven inshaAllah. I pray you all recovery fully and speedily. Your sister, Marwah

  5. Innalillahi wainnallilahi rojiun…
    Deepest condolences for your loss.. May she be placed amongst the righteous…

    I am so sorry to hear your fight with the virus… it must have been quite an ordeal… really breaks my heart to hear about the situation there in India…

    Am praying and hopefully things will get better with time… Insyallah.

    Take care Nadia and stay safe always!

    1. Ameen summa ameen. Jazak’Allah khair sis. It was indeed quite the ordeal, so your duas do mean so much. Yes, In Shaa’Allah, we too hope that things get better everywhere soon. You take care too.

  6. Thank you for sharing Nadia, I hope there’s a tiny relief in journalling yr ordeal in this post despite the pain you went thru with yr family.
    May Allah SWT reward all of you immensely for the ibadah of service and care for yr elders❤️❤️❤️

    1. Ameen summa ameen. Your dua and kind words bring comfort. Jazak’Allah khair. Yes, writing about this ordeal was definitely difficult, but once it was done, I do feel better alhumdulillah.

  7. Inna lillahi wa inna ilaihi rojioon. I felt it was not too long ago when I asked how were things with you over there. As hard as it was for me to read this post, I am sure it’s far tougher for you, the one who had, or is still enduring it.

    May Allah bless Nani with the highest station of Jannah, and protect her from the trials of the grave.
    May Allah bless you and your family with the strength and wisdom to overcome all the trials in this lifetime too.

    Take care sis. Hugs & prayers for you and your family.

    1. Ameen summa ameen. Your duas and kind words mean so much, sis. I’m reading out all these comments to my mother-in-law and she gives you all love and duas in return. We are much better now, alhumdulillah. Allah blesses us all with sabr as the days go by, and this makes things more easier. Hugs to you, too. Take care.
