NABEELAH episode 13

.

.

I hurriedly went back to the hospital and by the time I reached there, I was told that the doctors were attending to her. I engaged myself in fervent prayers for her survival. Nurses were coming out of ward, I asked each one of them about the condition of my wife but none of them gave me a definite response.

.

The doctor finally came out, “ehm, Mr. ja’far, we are sorry….”

.

“Please doctor don’t be sorry, where is my wife” I interrupted the doctor

.

The doctor announced that after so much of their effort to save her, she finally gave up the ghost. Ina lilah wa inaa ilayhi raajioon.”

.

Sadness encompassed my heart, I couldn’t cry because my grief is beyond crying, I comforted my mum not to wail because wailing is prohibited in Islam. We performed janazah on her the same day, and I carried my baby to Fatimah’s mother for proper care.

.

I couldn’t go home that day, I stayed at my parents apartments, as I switched on the data of my phone to message some of my friends about the incident through whatsapp, I got a new message which was from Fatimah, she sent it before she died, the message contained her last wishes, it was written therein that I should forgive her and I should also beg Nabeelah on her behalf, she pleaded that I should marry Nabeelah after her death, and also name our daughter Nabeeelah.  I broke into tears after reading the message, I wept for a long time, and there was nobody to console me.

.

I named my daughter Nabeelah as Fatimah wished, but I didn’t know how to go and plead to Nabeelah on behalf of Fatimah not to talk of telling her about marriage. After several months, I finally informed her of Fatimah’s final wishes and also informed her that I still loved her so dearly. Nabeelah informed me that Fatimah also sent her the same message that she should beg me on her behalf and also marry me but she didn’t know how to go about it. She also told me that she still loved me and we finally agreed to marry.

.

Her parents didn’t approve us to marry; they said people would think Nabeelah killed her friend because she wanted to marry me, since they didn’t know what really happened. We persuaded them a lot to agree because we were not concerned with what people are saying, the most important thing is the love that existed between us.  They finally agreed that we should marry but on a condition that we wouldn’t make our nikkah an elaborate one and we agreed.

*********************/////

.

” Hey, let’s stop the pillow fight” I surrendered 

.

”then, come and carry me to the sitting room” – Nabeelah said playfully 

.

I don’t want her to call me a lazy cat again and I don’t want to carry her, so I quickly raised the issue of her hair

.

 ”Dearie, but I remembered you telling me in the evening that you wanted to undo your hair” I announced

.

 ” Oya, let’s do that now”

.

 –Ay alal falaah—

.

 What? The call to prayer again?

.

No, it was my little Nabeelah mimicking the call to prayer 

.
