Death of a schoolmate

A schoolmate who was one year junior from me in high school was killed in the mosaue attack in December last year.

On a page dedicated to him I said:

"Was a year ahead of him in A levels. Have very positive memories of him: A person of good ikhlaq and very well rounded (sports, studies, social skills, etc.).

May he be granted Jannat and may his family/friends be granted patience in dealing with this immense loss.

"To Allah We belong, and to Him is our return"

His best friend talks about the loss in this BBC article and probably speaks for many over there. May Allah make things easy for the people who ware overloaded with many hardships.

"When the number of victims in such attacks gets reported in the news, it doesn't really reach your heart. But these people are real people, they are not just numbers. I lost someone I love, he is not here any more and it's unbearable at times.
It's such a loss, not just for the family, but for the country. He was an exceptional human being, a professional who had so much potential."
