My sincerest condolences to the families and relatives of the victims in this horrible tragic incident. “Inna Lillahi wa Inna Ilaihi Raji-oon – Surely we all belong to Allah and surely unto Him we shall return.” It has decreed and ordained by Almighty Allah. We must accept His Wisdom and Decision with grace and gratitude. Life is a long journey full with blessings and tests. With blessings, we are thankful. With tests and calamities, we are patient. Both are goof for the believers.
