Death is not the end. Death can never be the end. Death is the road. Life is the traveller. The Soul is the Guide.
My heart broke into a million pieces today. My soul cried a thousand tears. Our community has lost a diamond in the rough, a gem among a million pebbles. The news crushed the hearts of hundreds. We lost our shining star, Tawab. A smile like his is hard to forget, impossible to erase. His presence alone brightened a room, a banquet hall, even an entire ball room. His aura made every girl around him fill up with butterflies. My goodness what a gem he was. The beauty of his heart really did shine through, no one can argue that. Whether you’ve only seen a picture two, crossed paths a few times, or were his best friend, his face is a face that you’ll never forget. This loss has shook us all from our “in the clouds” lifestyle. This was a reminder to all to stay smart and to stay God fearing, for we never know when our time is up, we never know when we’ll have to answer for our sins before our Creator. I thank God so much to allow me to have been blessed with another breath, and I thank God for allowing me to take breaths along side his beautiful angel, Tawab. My heart goes out to his parents, to his siblings, to his cousins, his family, and to his closest friends. My prayers go out to the Ebadi family in this tough time. The only comfort we have right now is knowing that his passing was during the holy month of Ramadan and that he will be granted a kingdom in heaven, InshaAllah. Rest in peace Tawab jaan, you will forever be remembered and forever be missed. Inna Lillahi Wa Inna Ilaihi Raji’un
