Aisha found safe, alhumdulillah

Assalamualaikum wa-rahmatullahi wa-barakatahu,

In a previous post I had mentioned about this sister, Aisha Khan, who had gone missing since friday, December 16th 2011.

Alhumdulillah, she has been found safe.

There have been lost of speculations and comments on the reason she left etc etc. which is really sad.

I feel this incedent in itself was a test for all of us. Allah(SWT) wanted to see how we as an ummah would come together for this purpose. Subhanallah everyone has been doing everything they could to find her. Those of us in different parts of the world made a difference in our own small way by praying for her and her family (and alhumdulillah, her father also remembered those who prayed for her in his dua in tahajjud at the time of hardship when he prayed for his daughter’s safe return).

We didnt know her, we have never met her but for us she was a sister in faith.. and the others(non-muslims who prayed for her) did it for the sake of humanity, MashaAllah. It was indeed ecstatic to see the love we showed for each other.

Also, looking at it from another perspective, it was our chance to gain a few good deeds. Especially for her family and friends, the near and dear ones, who went through a traumatic situation, it was a way of expiating some of their sins, like the hadith says..

Narrated Aisha: (the wife of the Prophet) Allah’s Apostle (SAWS) said, “No calamity befalls a Muslim but that Allah expiates some of his sins because of it, even though it were the prick he receives from a thorn.” [ sahih bukhari ]

or may be it was a medium through which Allah helped them strengthen their relationship and trust in Him more. SubhanAllah.

I’m sure all of us were very scared for her. We prayed for her SAFE return, and alhumdulillah, our prayers were answered. Period. What happened, why, how.. all these questions are just a curiosity that our human brain processes, which I believe is not necessary should be answered! We served our role in this situation in the best manner we could, by Allah’s will. Our test has ended and Alhumdulillah, she’s safe, isn’t that what we asked for? That she returns home to her parents and family safe and unharmed, we got that, alhumdulillah. So let’s just be happy with that.

Everything else, well, I would say that’s between Aisha, her family and Allah(SWT). Who are we to judge?

-Potential Hijabi

P.S. As a matter of fact, our reaction to her return would also be a test. So, let’s make sure we react to it in a manner that is pleasing to Allah(SWT), InshaAllah.

    • Jazakallahu Khair Nasmira!.. Yeah I wish the same too, that’s why I felt the need to write this post…!what we see and know is definitely not the entire story..and there is no need for us to know either! The best thing to do is take the lessons from it and thank Allah(SWT) for everything and move on!
