A former neighbor passed away. A couple of years ago.
Got to learn about it only moments ago.
Wonderful people, both husband and wife. And great neighbors.
Good Christian people.
Mid-fifties. That is how old or young Doug was when he died. That was his name: Douglas.
Death comes to all: Muslim and non-Muslim. Good people and bad people.
Here is what his obituary said -- then, two years ago:
"In lieu of flowers, please be kind to everyone you encounter,
forgive someone who has hurt you,
beg forgiveness from someone you have hurt,
or hug someone close and tell them you love them."
What can Muslims learn from this?
Does it remind them of anything someone may have taught them 1400 years ago: Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam?
And they may be a bit rusty on right now?
May God bless the survivors, keep them and be with them.
