  4. Indeed to allah we belong and to him is our return. May allah have mercy on granpa rubeya and grant him the highest rank in jannah. Indeed he has been a great grandfather and as somalia his early history touched me deeply as we( somalis) also keep camels. And finnaly i am saying to you my brother mohammed ان لله ما اخذ وله ما اعطي وكل شيء عنده باجل مسمي فاصبر واحتسب.

  5. Asalamualaykum, thanks for a beautiful eulogy about a beautiful person. May Allah swt grant him highest of paradise. It gets you reflecting on ways you can improve your ways and life. MashAllah. Can you please elaborate on ‘barakah in movement’? JazakAllah

    • A teacher once told me that “Still water goes stale, but pure water is always running” and it was a lesson about taking action and not sitting around and hoping for things to change. So “Barakah in movement” is a proverb that further emphasizes this point, then if you want Barakah in your life, you need to take action and work hard for it, and not sit and expect miracles to happen. And Allah knows best.

  6. May Allah SWT have mercy on your grandfather’s soul and grant him Jannah.

    Thank you for sharing your grandfather’s Journey.
