The Day My Daughter Died

Abdur-Raheem Green writes a gripping narrative about a daughter lost to war, the pangs of separation, and the return from Allah.

And I think about the suffering, my dead daughter. She is my daughter. We are connected, the people of iman, connected in a way that is beyond even the ties of blood. They claim this is a fantasy, some sort of fake kinship. Say what you like. Prattle away in your ignorance! Those who live it and taste it know the truth of it, and your words make no difference.
