In Memoriam: Deah Barakat, Yusor Abu Salha, and Razan Abu Salha

Bismillah-ir Rahman-ir Raheem.

Nothing will be the same.

And Nothing will replace you.

But you have gone home,

Eternity before you.

You walked with Grace and Virtue,

You remembered Him.

You leave behind those that love you,

leaving footprints to follow,

in good deeds not yet done,

in prayers not yet made,

in smiles we have not seen.

Such was your legacy

and a great reward awaits,

like nothing you could have found here.

Nay, this life was not made to contain it.

Though in grief you have left us,

I pray He gives you glad tidings

That you will know naught but Peace

and Love

without fear of age nor death,

That you have done your duty.

And that He is pleased.

I cannot imagine a more beautiful thing.

Inna lillahi wa Inna illayhi raji’oon.

Nesha Usmani
