Mashar - مشر

 إنا لله وإنا إليه راجعون

An elder dies, (a Mashar in our community) and he leaves behind his worldly suffering and the body that had imprisoned him of late. He moves on. Our Creator calls. Here, in this world, people  mourn the loss and the space left behind by the Mashar. This is a prescribed plan in Allah's design for us all -  the people who have lived and died before us have already taken this path - and so the Mashar is not alone. We have yet to follow, be released from our own bonds and shackles and make that journey. Allah has already written this for us all.

May Allah  guide us all and grant the Mashar*, the Kashar**, the Shaheed*** and all their loved ones faith and peace.
