The Day Mom Died

Mom's EID MILAD is on October 20.

The pain of her loss is still in my heart but I need to live with it.

Losing a mother as supportive and caring as my mom is a constant wound that will never heal.

Oh, how I wish I could still hug her. Inna Lillahi wa inna ilaihi raji'un (Surely we belong to Allah and to Him shall we return).

Here is an old article I wrote for her. It narrates the painful experience I had upon knowing that my beautiful and loving mother was sick of cancer and would soon depart from our lives.

The Day Mom Died

She was the wind beneath my wings, always the positive voice in my soul that I found refuge when I was troubled and stressed.

Whenever she would sensed that I was not well, she would lie beside me in my bed and comfort me with inspiring words.

How could I ever forget my late beautiful mother, Bai Saada Bajunaid Candao?

My words will never be enough to describe her greatness.

My words will never be enough.

I still vividly remember the day I lost her. …
