Hajj

“My daughter-in-law died two months ago. Everyone used to make fun of her because she was taller and healthier than my son. Whatever ill minded people said, at the end she eventually became our daughter. My wife often advised me not to show my affection for Nooreja in front of other daughter-in-laws.

But she was different than everyone, how could I not praise for her kindness. So, everyone was jealous of Noori, oh, I and my wife called her Noori. After dividing my property among my children, I had a small portion of money left only for my Hajj (pilgrimage to Mecca). I was unable to bear my wife’s expense. When my wife asked for money to our children, they said, there is no point to send a blind mother in Hajj.

My wife lost her eye sight many years ago. I saw her crying many days while I was preparing for Hajj. Then one day, Noori called everyone, by standing inside the indoor curtain, she passed a parcel to my elder son. Noori had sold her gold ornaments and also added the money that she got from her parent’s property. She requested my son to arrange for my wife and her’s Hajj procedure. No one utter a word of gratitude only I saw my blind wife’s glittering eyes. People used to say, whatever happens a daughter-in-law never can be a daughter. Noori could not become my daughter, she became our son.

During Hajj, Noori took my wife in her back while completing a ritual. My wife was holding her like a child and I wiped from far. My wife died in 2004 just after come back from Hajj. I do not know if Allah grant any of our Hajj or not. But till my last breathe my daughter-in-law will be in my prayers, and I will keep begging to Allah so He grant the best place of Heaven for our Noori.”
