TRIBUTE TO WAKIL: A
ROLE MODEL FOR ALL
BY JAVED ZAHEER, FREE EXPRESSION AWARD WINNER
TORONTO: Wakil, my brother-in-law, passed away on March 3, 2018, in Pakistan. His spouse, Meena, is my first cousin. They lived in Hyderabad, Sindh.
Belonging to a middle class family, I have seen Wakil and this great couple struggle so hard and with a purpose and target: To give the best to the family including education, to live happily and nicely and love all. The couple transferred the best quality of life to the children, mostly girls. Their struggle bore good fruit for now, except two unmarried, all the girls are highly educated, working on good positions and living a happy married with the best chosen partners chosen for them.
Wakil, by your tremendous contributions, best grooming, teaching, preaching and training and through promotion of love, togetherness and in making your children very good human being you have made us all really proud. You really have proved yourself a role model for all: As an individual, as a loving and caring husband and father. He proved to the world that whether belonging to a poor or rich family girls are never a burden on the family and society. The most important thing is that how you bring them up, make them strong and brave to face the challenges of the cruel world and how to keep transferring the best qualities to the next generation.
Wakil may Allah be very good with you and give you one of the best places in paradise. The body perishes but the soul remains forever. I am sure one day our souls will meet and greet each other.
Meena and the children: May Allah give you all the patience and strength to bear this tremendous loss.
Aye Dost Tum Tu Chaley Gaye Par Apni Khoobsurat Yadain Chor Gaye. Hum Sub Ko Ye Sabaq De Gaye Ho Ki Dunya Mein Kis Tarha Izzat, Mehnat, Kamyabi Aur Khushali Ke Saath Zindagi Guzari Jati Hai. Mein Tumhain Salute Karta Hoon Ki Tum Ek Misali Shaksh Ho. Ghuda Tumhain Jannat Mein Aala Maqam De. Ameen.
