Life is not always easy. We face challenges, difficulties and hardship throughout our life journey. These highs and lows are a part of life. Sometimes, however, we need that reminder that Allah is always there and these moments of hardship are not punishments but trials from Him to strengthen us, guide us and elevate us….one breath at a time.
When a loved one dies, one world shifts. The pain rise up front and center of our minds, blocking out a lot of what we know and understand. Realizing and coping with the shock and trauma is never an easy task.
When the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) passed away and people were talking about it, Umar threatened to kill anyone who said that the prophet was dead. He was deeply affected by grief, as were other companions. It took Abu Bakr's recitation of the words of Allah ('Muhammad is no more than a messenger, and indeed messengers have passed away before him' Al-Imran 3:144) to calm Umar and other companions.
Faith, and knowing that we are never alone, shines a light in the dark spaces that grief creates within the heart. This book offers faith-inspired insights about grief and how to build resilience, one breath at a time.
