He noted that the death of a spouse could be devastating, but consoled Yusuf Chindo to take solace and find strength in the fact that every soul shall taste death and the will of Allah always prevails, quoting from the glorious Qur’an, “And We will surely test you with something of fear and hunger and a loss of wealth and lives and fruits, but give good tidings to the patient, who, when distress strikes them, say, “Indeed we belong to Allah , and indeed to Him we will return.”
He prayed Almighty to grant the late Khadijat Aljannat Firdaus and give her husband and the children she left behind the fortitude to bear the great loss.
