Coping with Grief: Part 4

Grief in children
Speaking with children when they are grieving can be challenging because it brings up some of our own fears and anxieties which we may be battling ourselves, but it can also be difficult to figure out how to best explain it in a way that is age-appropriate. But on the other hand, no matter how difficult it may be, as a parent you can never ignore it and just say, Ag! They`ll figure it out! You need to be able to sit with your children and talk to them about the grief they are experiencing.

Firstly, you need to remind yourself even before them that Allah is the Almighty, The Most Powerful and The Protector. “No disaster strikes except by permission of Allah. And whoever believes in Allah, He will guide his heart. And Allah is Knowing of all things.” He is the One Who created the coronavirus and is more powerful than it. We rely on Allah’s protection in every moment—from the air in our lungs to the beating of our hearts. Our health is always in the Hands of Allah but the coronavirus is an intense reminder of this. read more

Impressive Skill Set

"So tell me, Mrs. Smith," asked the interviewer, "have you any other skills you think might be worth mentioning?"

"Actually, yes," said the applicant modestly. "Last year I had two short stories published in national magazines, and I finished my novel."

"Very impressive," he commented, "but I was thinking of skills you could apply during office hours."

Mrs. Smith explained brightly, "Oh, but that was during office hours."
