Saluting all our martyrs of the Rawalpindi Parade Lane tragedy! [we. condemn. terrorism. anywhere. and. everywhere!]

Dedicated to one of the most beautiful individuals I’ve had the good fortune of knowing – Muhammad Bilal Riaz Shaheed.

Last year, on Friday, the 4th of December, ’09, our truly beloved friend, brother, mentor.. a gem of a person, passed away in a horrible act of terrorism at the Westridge mosque in Pindi.

40+ others also lost their lives whilst offering the Juma prayers at the tragic event. As informed, Bilal gave his life whilst protecting his young nephew by lying over him and successfully sheltering him from the spraying bullets.

The nation lost a true eloquent leader, the parents their irreplaceable child, a fiancĂ© her to-be hubby, academic institutions (Beacon House, PK; GIKI, PK; Imperial, UK) their blue-eyed alum, and all others who had had the privilege of having known him- a lovely lovely and truly lovely ‘dost’ (friend).

Please, please pray for his Maghfirat, and his journey in the Life Ahead; and for strength to his family and his loved ones who today bear.. an irreparable loss.

May Allah bless him with the Heavens *Ameen*
