Here’s post 4 of 5 for today
Aqeel:”Noori I divorce you, I divorce you, I divorce you”
And he takes a deep breath….
Aunty nafissa:”nooooo noooo please don’t do this….please…..you were so good to noori and to all of us..please, we can sort this out…divorce is not the way to go about it….”
Just incase you all wondering what nooris father had to say about all this….well nooris father had a stroke about 5 years ago which left him almost like a cabbage..he has to be pushed around in a wheel chair and can’t talk at all…therefore he probably doesn’t even know what is going on really…that’s why moey and joe have taken over as the men of the house….and poor aunty nafissa had to go through all of this stress almost as a single parent….
Aqeel:”maaf…..its done….3 talaaqs is 3….it can’t be taken back…wether said in anger, or even playfully…or even one sitting..3 talaaqs means I don’t ever want anything to do with her ever again in my life…”
Aunty faati gets up and walks to aqeel..she throws herself at her son and cries into his arms…..
Aunty faati:”I’m so sorry my son! I’m sooo sorry..this is all my fault…I should never have insisted you marry this rubbish if I knew all of this..I promise I didn’t know any of it…”
Aqeel:”shhhh maa…(Stroking her back and kissing her on her head)…its not your fault….its not your fault..I know you would never intentionally want to hurt me”
Uncle imraan(aqeels father):”I suggest you(pointing at noori)..pack your bags and get the hell out of this house…..you’ve caused enough damage to our lives and to my son……..you will never find another man like him…and I really feel you very sorry….I don’t think any man will accept you ever again in your life for doing such immoral and pathetic things…you are a disgrace to the entire muslim community…you are filthy and shameless….my son deserves better and he will get better……get out!just get the hell out!”
Everyone was too hurt and embarrassed to say any more….noori wasn’t even crying…..she looked angry…but no sign of remorse showed on her face whatsoever…
She dashed off into her room..all we heard was the banging of cupboards….
Aunty faati:”nafissa….we were such good friends….why didn’t you tell me?what kind of a friend are you?to allow my sons like to be destroyed like this?do you not know the damaged you’ve caused to an innocent gentleman?”
Aunty nafissa:”(looking upset)…I’m sorry faati…really we thought she changed and that she was happy with her aqeel….I didn’t mean to hurt you people…”
Aunty faati:”well you have really hurt us…and I don’t ever want any kind of friendship with you…please don’t ever call me….I don’t ever want to see any of you people at my house..”
Because of nooris shamelessness she lost everything…she lost a gem of a husband, she lost the trust of her family, she lost her luxurious life, she lost her flat, her car, but most importantly she lost her izzat…
If only she’d changed her immoral ways, she couldve been happy…there’s always a chance to make tawbah…Allah puts us in situations so that we can turn to him in repentance..
Pride and arrogance leads a person to destruction…
This entire situation has really opened up ismails eyes…as they say, when Allah chooses hidayah for a person….then everything around them serves as an eye-opener for them….
We stayed with aqeel after the dogs all left…he needed us….we performed asr and then maghrib..I called dadi to make sure the kids were okay…once she reassured me that everything was fine, we sat a little while longer trying to comfort aqeel and his family….
