By the roaring waves!

Miss Rizwana

I am not sure where to start from or if I should even try. Today? Maybe later? But will words even speak? I met you last about one month ago at Binaat – our school reunion. It wasn’t easy coming there this time but I am so grateful that I did. I was so late, the hall was so full, every face was a stranger…. until I spotted you at the reception. Ah, Miss rizwana. You hugged me.

It was also the same day that you told me about your beautiful future aspirations. How impressed we were, how close in that moment. I told you that you are my favorite teacher.

There has been no one like you. You were what they call teachers second mothers for. I used to come and cry in front of you for the issues that were big for the sensitive little me at that time. You were the best listener. Always there. Always kind. Always beautiful.

I saw your funeral but i didnt see your face. But i can imagine it: angelic, peaceful. Inshaa Allah you are in a better place. May Allah fill your grave with noor like you showed light to us. May Allah bless you the highest ranks of Jannah and help us all become sadqa e jaariya for you. You will forever live in the hearts of so many people that love you. Your loss is so sudden but Allah loves you so much more than all of us.

    Ameen to all your prayers, may Allah bless her soul and strength to all the people who held her dear. I feel for your loss and I suppose she was one of those teachers who inspire us to be a better human being more than just being a bookworm. They inspire generations to come. The struggle of seeking and spreading knowledge (of that beyond the material things) is one of the most esteemed one. Its no less than Jihaad. I believe these are also among the people about whom Iqbal wrote;

    يہ غازی ، يہ تيرے پر اسرار بندے
    جنھيں تو نے بخشا ہے ذوق خدائی
    دو نيم ان کی ٹھوکر سے صحرا و دريا
    سمٹ کر پہاڑ ان کی ہيبت سے رائی
