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.

  1. May God rest his soul in peace. I came across your blog while searching for something and I am going through a phase of my own personal grief and can understand what you must be going through. Losing a loved one is very difficult, I pray to the almighty to give you & your family the strength to bear the loss.

      Jazakallah Henna. He had been ill for awhile and the last couple of months we knew he was quite miserable. I have never seen my father in his pajamas all day and most recently that is what was happening. The thought of him not being here is taking time to get used to. This is has been very difficult for my mother. May Allah make it easy for her.

    2. I can understand. I pray that Allah makes this easier on your family, and may He grant Sabr to all of you. It's a tough thing to go through.
      My dad too has cancer, so I can understand the range of emotions that you and your family are going through; May Allah give those who are here good health and Sabr, and may He grant the highest ranking of Jannah to those who have left us. You are in my prayers Asiya; I'm here if you ever want to talk.

    1. Ameen. Jazakallah for your dua Nisha. May Allah make it easy for you to deal with the loss of your mother. Allah is wise in all the he does. Now I pray that my father having this cancer and all the difficulty he went through, Inshallah, was Allah's way to forgive him for his sins before he passed away.
