Inna Lillahi Wa Inna Elahi Rajioun
From you we come, and to you we return.
Things at Chocolate & Chillies have been very quiet the last little while. I have been contemplating whether to write this post or not. I am a private person and blog very little about my personal life. But being MIA for so long I thought I should let you all know what's been going on. It's been a rough few weeks. My father passed away on February 12, 2013. He had been battling esophageal cancer for the last 2 1/2 years. Most people diagnosed with this cancer last about a year. Alhumdullilah my father lived much more than that. He had a very positive attitude about his illness...it felt like I was more upset about it than him. He was a very honest man and has instilled that same honesty in my brother and myself.
May Allah grant him Jannat-ul-Firdous and forgive him for his sins. May Allah make this time easy for my mother and reward for all of her hard work in taking care of him. Ameen.
Jazakallah to everyone who helped my family during my father's illness and the time following his death. May Allah reward you for all that you have done for my family. Ameen.
