Despite maintaining a 24-hour routine with her husband, both caring for their two terminally ill children (Batten’s disease), Zakkee – 12 and Zahraa – 10, she still found time to pursue her passion for learning the Arabic language.

Her care shift would finish daily at midnight when I would visit her to teach her for up to an hour, and after I left, she would revise what I had taught her until 2am when she would go to sleep. She would be up again for the Fajr prayer and then resume her care shift at 8am.

My Sister, Umm Zakkee (rahima-hAllaah), died of breast cancer in the early hours of Saturday 16th Ramadhaan (1st December 2001) at the age of 35 years; Please remember her in your prayers.

May Allaah (‘Azza wa Jall) permit her notes to benefit all who seek to learn the Arabic language, and may He (‘Azza wa Jall) cleanse my Sister of her sins and reward her with al-Firdows al-A’laa, aameen.

– Abu ‘Abdullaah
