Just before eid …
A very sad incident took place yesterday (jumat-ul-wida) in Masjid Salman Farsi I-10/2. A person fell from the top of the mosque. It was announced today that the person has now died.
What actually happened was … It was the time of the Jumma prayer, just before khutba. And the mosque was completely packed with followers. At the top floor, some safein (rows) at the rear end were not covered with carpet. Some person told this poor guy to carpet the floor. He with the help of a kid was carpeting the floor, and while doing so, he fell from the top.
He was unconscious at that moment and people took him to a hospital, but couldn’t reach the hospital alive. Today in the fajr prayer, molvi sahib announced this. He also told that he had 2 daughters and 1 son, who was only 1 month old.
He died on the jumat-ul-wida, in Ramadan, in a mosque while fasting and with a purpose of namaz in mind. The only thing I can think of is that he must be very religious and very close to Almighty Allah. But what will happen of those kids, who were waiting for eid, but have just lost their own father. Please pray for him and the kids.
