Holding Hands of a mother and her children

I Nazifa Rahmani convey the real story of a family whose life totally changed by a spiritual support provided by me. I have assisted people in different ways. As I had the sprit of saving people‘s life since my childhood.
The family that I have helped was my neighbor who lived in Kabul. The mother and father of the family were the teachers of Kabul University. They have earned Higher Education in France and as well were married there. After getting married and completing Higher Education, they came to Kabul.
They were blessed by four daughters and one son. After passage of some times, they were divorced. This was caused by domestic issues and several interferences in their lives. After she was divorced, she came to her portents’ home. The parents grieved for their daughter. He father died since he couldn’t tolerate his daughter’s life troubles. Besides, her mother died due to suffering gall-bladder disease. Only her brother and his wife remained at home. Her brother and his wife was not behaving her well,after their parents death so she made herself to find a way for her life. There fore, she traveled to France. She had contact with me via mail. She was missing her children and was eager to visit them. As a mother I was becoming sorrowful when I was realizing her problems. Thus, I decided to help her and do something to make mother close to her children.
At that time, we were emigrated from Afghanistan to Pakistan. I found her husband‘s home with lots of difficulties. I visited her husband and the children. The husband was married with another woman and the children were living in a horrible condition and were suffering lots of cruelties. Then I tried to find a way through which the children contact their mother.
One day, I went to their home and gave my contact number to elder daughter. Right After two days she came to my home wither her little sister. They were keen to know about their mother. I gave them their mother’s contact number. Soon the children contacted their mother. Their mother decided to invite her children legally in France. After working hard, the mother became successful in inviting them. The children talked to their father about traveling to France. The father accepted and the children traveled from Pakistan to France. The mother and her children started a happy and pleasant life.
The mother expressed lots of thanks and said that I have granted her by the world most precious gift.
I am very thankful of Allah who had blessed me by the ability of holding some ones’ hand.

Hey nazifa
You are really blessed by a wonderful quality to assist everyone. I wish i could develop such qualities in me But for me to have some is very impossible.I liked the way you helped them and gave their life back to them.Holding ones hand is not so easy, showing a genuine compassion is very difficult. But i am glad that i know someone who has genuine qualities and make people lives better. I am so inspired by you

This is such an inspiring story. This story speaks volumes about your heart and compassion for your sisters in Afghanistan. To be able to connect the mother with her children again was indeed a gift to that family.

The fact that you are a teacher in Afghanistan is in itself a gift to the young girls of your country where often, their opportunities to learn fall well behind responsibilities to their family. In a country where forces try to prevent the education of young girls, it is inspiring to hear from you and your students as they struggle to learn against a backdrop of devastation, oppression and civil war.

I hope that you will continue to share with us stories from AIL and Afghanistan. Peace be upon you,

reaching out

Thank you for sharing a look into a life of reaching out and connecting with others. Too many times we hear of someone's need, but do not take the time, make the effort to follow through, to see if we might be able to help. You do! That truly is a gift, and so many benefit from it.
