Just Bliss


Posted on: March 8, 2012

Patience has many synonyms like endurance, serenity, tolerance, acceptance, lenience, easiness, resilience etc

I know a lady who is resting in eternal peace in heavens above now. She had all the qualities in her persona. I feel proud to admit that she was my cousin. She was not my cousin only but very dear to my heart too.

She was Allah’s chosen one!

Let me share with you to make you believe my words.

Her name was Mumtaz. She was the only sister of her five brothers. Hence was dear and adored by every member of the family.

She always carried innocent smile on her lips no matter what situation she was in. Her smile was her distinctiveness.

She was whitish having attractive features with black long hair neatly tied in braid.  She was middle height. I am writing all these details to enable the reader to visualize her character. She was a shy maiden. She always covered her head with her dupatta being a truthful practicing Muslima both physically and spiritually.

She got married to one of my other cousin, Taufiq bhai. Both husband and wife had very sound relationship. She got same love and respect from her husband like her maternal family. She was blessed with 3 sons and one daughter.

The eldest son Saeed was diagnosed brain tumor when he was just a teen age.  Both husband wife got him the best they could from medication to brain surgery from time to time. Saeed had to go through many painful and critical phases of his life but the patience was commendable. None of them ever complained.  Taufiq bhai and Mumtaz aapa got their sons married at early age to give their son as much happiness as possible. I salute to the parents Qadir bhai and Muqaddasa bhabi ( MY COUSINS) of the girl too who knowing the tragic end of the boy gave their daughter Sadia’s hand. This is simply faith in Almighty and supporting the values of the family.

Mumtaz Apa developed cancer herself due to the grief seeing her son in agony. She endured cancer with same smile on her lips. Both husband and wife kept it secret of her ailment to themselves. Nobody knew that she was a cancer patient herself. She greeted the guests with same angelic smile, carried out all her duties without a single word of complaint.  Despite all efforts her handsome son passed away.

She got weaker with every passing day enduring the grief and loss of her son. Nobody knew she carried cancer in her chest.

All her brothers loved her but the eldest brother Talmeez bhai had special feeling of love and admiration for her. He felt very grieved to see her getting so ill so he also got ill. The strange thing about all this is that since the brother could not bear to see her  in unbearable agony anymore . He breathed his last at night when Mumtaz Apa passed away the same morning. The sky shed tears too on the sad demise of the souls in form of heavy rain that night in Karachi where brother died and in Islamabad where the great   lady passed away bearing the same angelic smile on her face.

Her husband Taufiq bhai visits her grave very often to pray for his beloved wife. I never experienced such height of patience in my life like my dear cousin’s. May she rest in the highest position of heaven and Allah be pleased with her. Amen

Taufiq bhai a frail soul carried the yoke of his family very responsibly.

Now  thanks to Almighty children have grown up. Raana the daughter of Saeed is married having a baby boy. Her brother Khurram is to be married soon in Islamabad.

Hats off to Waseem the younger brother of Saeed who sailed the boat of family dutifully and with unconditional love. he got married his niece Raana just like he would marry his own daughter.

May Allah shower His blessings always upon this family. amen

I used their services and got significantly more visitors to my site. Hope this helps 🙂 Take care. Lindsey


You rightly praised her,I enjoy the reflections of her glorious and affectioanate personality even after her death…its amazing,but its true…You know once me and my husband decided to spend vaccations at northern hills,he told me we would be seeing her family at Islamabad,I was expecting the same attitude as I had with others around…I said to my husband we would see them but wouldnt be staying there…just because of fearing if they wouldnt appreciate our stay at their house….but to my delight the whole family appeared and acted as among the best of caring and loving people in my life….her sons,daughter,husband and daughters in law..everyone!!..they blessed me with such immense pleasure that we stayed for 5 days with them,my husband told me she was herself very loving and caring person and she instilled the same personna of her in her kids and family…..I respect them a lot…thanks everyone from phuppo family if you are reading this…I built precious memories with all of you…all of you are amazing and loving people,its well said a righteous woman can make the world paradise….her khushboo of love still exists in her walls!!!
