Al-Ghaithi Family – Show them that we are one family

10 10 2008

A family burned in NY, mom died, 4 daughters severely burned due to a gas explosion a year ago, one lost three fingers, one lost her eye sight.

Many non-Muslims have been gratefully helping them, yet many Muslims in NY don’t know about their case.

Their mom was completely unrecognizable at the hospital. Before she died, she removed all of her gold (jewelry) and asked for it to be given to charity, because she knew her death was coming, subhanAllah. At the day when sister Lazeena visited them for Eid, the children, one by one sat on their father’s lap and repeated after him, making du’a for Allah to place their mother in Jannah and to reunite them all together there with her, Ameen.

Then Leena came home. SubhanAllah it was much more emotional seeing her because of her being blind. She walked into the living room, her arms stretched out feeling around. Her father told her she had guests and she was beaming. She felt around the livingroom hugging us, kissing us and giggling. No doubt she was the one who laughed and smiled the most out of all of them mashaAllah. However, it’s obvious she still needs time to get comfortable with her condition. Eating is very difficult for her to do on her own, she also seems to get really irritated and emotional whenever she’s playing with her sisters and they take something from her or even get up and leave without telling her. She starts wailing right away and throwing a tantrum. I can only imagine how she must feel. Remember she wasn’t born blind, she remembers the world of sight I’m sure, subhanAllah, and so now being trapped in a world of darkness will take her a lot of time to get used to, but overall she’s very happy mashaAllah.

SubhanAllah, only saw this project now..and were unfortunatley too late to contribute towards the Eid-al Fitr 1429 Project,may Allah forgive us. We have just donated towards the general Al-Ghaithi Family Fund, may Allah accept – we urge others to donate what they can fesabelillah, for surely your reward will be with Allah on That Day when we will be in desperate need of good deeds

O Allah have mercy on the Al-Ghaithi Family, grant them sabr and relief. may Allah grant their mother a high place in Jannah,ameen.

Our sincere condolenses to their family, and our love,duaas and support.
