Dear Welayat Chacha,

Felt so sad when I heard this news from Abbu. It was always lovely to meet you in Patna. Your jokes, your humorous talks, don't remember any gathering where you are present and people are not laughing their guts out.

With your pleasant and loving nature, I know you would have touched a thousand hearts and inspired many to always live life to the fullest.

May Allah give all your loved ones sabr to get over this loss.

Pyare mamma,
           You were always like a father to us,a pillar who supported our whole family,always guided us at every step of life . Your passing away has left a huge vacuum in all our hearts,an abyss that cannot be filled.

      Bachpan mein jab bhi mujhe chot lagti aapka naam hi lekar pukaarti thi aur aap mere liye first aid bankar pahuch jaate the . Lekin ab..........

Nothing would be the same without your presence it'll be like walking a path without a map which you were in all our lives.

Aapki,
Bably

Dear mamma,
Firstly I am very sorry for not writing this message in urdu because you once told me 'Beta badon ko urdu mein khat likha karo.'
There are lots and lots of memories of us together that will be cherished forever. From bringing crackers in shab e baraat to burning them together, showing raavan dahan in diwali to breaking our heavily filled gullak.
You surely scolded us on every mistake we did, but definitely loved us way more than we could ever think of.
Never ever did we think of this type of a situation wherein we will be yearning for your blessings, your advices and your scoldings.
Since childhood, all that I have felt for you is-
"Chanda maama se pyaara mera maama,
Meri aankhon ka taara mera maama."

Yours,
Ruby

Dear Papa..

I wish I had told you earlier all the things I thought about you. I wish I had said to you that I felt priveleged to be called your own. I wish I told you that the little time I got with you, I learned... I learned humility, love and expression.

Not many people have the ability of touching lives only to make them better. You were rare papa and you will be dearly dearly missed.

I wrote a little something for you... the day after you were gone.. I hope it reaches you through my prayers...
..
...bas ek awaaz us oor se aaye
us oor, is oor ka farak mitaye..
jo mehsoos ho, bhale samjha na paayein..
...parde ke us paar se..
...awaaz ya ehsaas se..
...koi aahat toh ho, jo us oor se aaye...

parda toh bas naam ka hai..
kaise bhi, ye yakeen dilaaye...
...ki sir par haath ab bhi hai..
is baat ka ehsas dilaye..

jo kal raha hi nahi..
usmein theherne ki,
bas thodi si mauhlat mil jaaye..
...toh kal se milkar.. usko batlayein..
ki keemat kal ki, aaj samajh aati hai..
...aankhein band hote hi, jhalak nazar aati hai..

kabhi baaton mein
kabhi yaadon mein
..kal hamesha shamil hoga..
guzar kar bhi, guzra nahi..
kal, kal mein fir shamil hoga..

akele, sannate mein..
us oor se awaaz aa hi jati hai..
..sir par haath ab hi hai...
..isi yakeen mein bas yun hi,
Shaam guzar jaati hai...

I believe in your being papa, through the love and goodness you spread. You are.. and always will be..

Dear welayat cha,

It's very hard to beleive that you are not with us. Your pure soul, the charismatic persona, your affection, your love and one of the handsome man. You taught me the real meaning of friendship. The friendship between you and phupa. You asked me about my future plans, everytime we met u asked me, how my job is going, you guided me just like phupa., You were the beauty of the temple. It's hard to find a man like you. I know you are smiling from heaven and giving me dua "khush raho beta" . May allah bless you and your beautiful soul.

Dear Uncle,
So hard to believe that you are no more among us. I can still hear your laughter, feel your vibrant personality, your affectionate nature. You were more than a brother to my father, his best friend and our favorite uncle. You have been a constant part of our life. I’m sad that you left us too soon. May Allah swt fill your grave with light, grant you the highest level jannat, reunite us all in jannat and give Aunty and the family sabr. Ameen ya rabbul alameen !
Love always,
Sibbi.

Welayat Uncle,

Patna was synonymous with you. My father’s best friend. My favourite Uncle. Cannot fathom not seeing you the next time I visit Patna. Your warmth, your joyful nature and your lovely smile.... will miss all that and more. The image of you and Papa chatting away, drinking tea and laughing will forever remain etched in my mind. You were always so affectionate and so full of dua for all of us. We are so pained by your loss. You will always hold a very special place in our hearts. We all aspire, one day to be as nice and as genuine a person as you were.

May Allah, “as-Samad (the everlasting refuge)”, bless you with eternal peace and the finest place in Jannah. And may Allah give Sabr to Auntie for this irreplaceable loss. Ameen.

Respect and more respect,
Sufi

Papa,

I never wrote a letter to you, maybe because I never had to reach out to you, you were always there whenever I needed, wanted, wished or desired.

Yet here we are, disconnected physically but more connected than ever, and I just want you to know that your death taught me sabr and being your son taught me shukr.

And thats all there is to life.

Faqat Aapka,
Shanu

Papa ... Wat to say and how ...i always felt the blessed one ...getting that extra from u always.....that special biased eye ..which u had for me amongst the three of us... innumerable small instances flash before my eyes ..frm the day u taught me to walk until the day wen u were proud to witness my achievements.
There are a very few personalities who leave their marks on the hearts of the people irrespective of their age or interest , but u were blessed with that infectious charm that made eveyone around u entangled. Not because u are my father ...but a true pure soul.
I will always be the proudest and the luckiest daughter ... and you as my guiding star.....will be living with ur memories Papa..... till we meet again in Heaven.
Urs forever,
Gudia

Welayat Uncle will always be missed. His smiling nature , his constant duaas every time we saw him. He always took the time to ask about each individual family member by name without fail.
He was a wonderful soul. May Allah taala grant him the best of places.
You will surely be missed Uncle.
Much respect,
Sinu

his Life

The journey is the reward

What is life?

Is it the expression of happiness or the pursuit of it. In papa’s case one would always think its the former. Born and raised amidst an early bereavement in his family, Papa in many ways was destiny’s child, exemplified and now testified by the many lives he touched and the many deep relationships he forged.

His genuineness, sincerity and never ending curiosity made him go through rich, diverse and challenging experiences, and he embraced them all, with a smile and the blessings of his mother who stayed with him till she breathed her last in 2011. The year 2022 would have marked the golden jubilee of his life’s journey with his able and loving partner, who always stood by his side through thick and thin, and who now carries his baton. 

More than the tangibles, what he earned in his lifetime is the invaluable treasure of care, love, respect and affection. The pearls of wisdom that he leaves behind - of compassion, kindness and liveliness, will always be remembered, cherished and missed. 
A tall personality who acquired great  stature through his deeds and actions.

“So live as if you were living already for the second time and as if you had acted the first time as wrongly as you are about to act now” - (Man’s search for meaning)

_Note from proud children (Saima, Soheib & Shiraz)

Welayat Chacha, one of my favourite uncles. Always made me smile, even as a kid, when most uncles seemed boring. He was perhaps the only one I looked forward to meeting. 

Now the interesting story. I had pretty much decided to live my life as a bachelor, marriage was never an option. And he casually asked me about my plans of ‘settling down’. 

I immediately denied the concept to him. Then he put his arms around my shoulder and said, it’s about ‘Companionship’ you don’t need to have kids immediately or if you don’t want to; what’s important is to have a partner, who you can just simply talk to, she doesn’t have to be of the same religion. All you need is a friend a roommate! 
Though I wasn’t fully convinced at that point. Later when I decided to get married, it was pretty much based on that logic, that moment I was transported to theconversation he had with me at Chajjubagh.
He will always be missed and many memories will continue to live in my heart.
