More Children Died Today

More Children Died Today December 14, 2012

O Allah, protect him from the torment of the grave. O Allah, make him a precursor, a forerunner and a treasure for his parents and an answered intercessor. O Allah, make him weigh heavily in their scales (of good) and magnify their reward. Make him join the righteous of the believers. Place him in the care of Ibrahim. Save him by Your mercy from the torment of Hell. Give him a home better than his home and a family better than his family. O Allah, forgive those who have gone (i.e. passed away) before us, our children lost (by death), and those who have preceded us in Faith. O Allah, make him for us a precursor, a forerunner and a cause of reward.  – EsinIslam.Com

Each and every day, I thank God for the gift of  my family, for our health, our safety and our comfort.  I thank God for all that I know and all that I have not yet discovered.  I thank God for using me as an instrument in this life, however that may be.  I ask God to use me to full-fill my purpose in life, I ask that I be open to knowledge and I ask that my family continue to follow in the path that he destined for us.

Then I ask for peace for those families in Egypt, in Palestine and Israel, in Syria, in Haiti, in Libya, in Sudan, Burma and the families that continue to suffer because of the September 11th attacks and the resulting war.

Today I will add the families of the children and teachers from Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.

May God bring you Peace.
