Not sure of the etiquette on this board, but I'd like all Muslims to pray for my father in law please.

He passed away on Saturday, a sudden heart attack.

His family are heartbroken and not coping well. They've all travelled to Pakistan to bury him.

I'd like to talk about him a little if that's ok.

He was an amazing, kind man who put everyone else first. He doted on his grandchildren, he was looking at photos of my DD's on his phone as he had the heart attack. So they were the last faces he ever saw.

I always said to my mum I felt sorry him, he struggled with various disabilities, but he just got on with it even though he was in pain (not heart related, that was out of the blue).

We would visit him and my inlaws 3/4 times a week, so we were very close, my youngest DD in particular adored him (my eldest DD is from a previous relationship).

He welcomed me and my DD into his family with open arms (once my husband told him about us) and once DD2 came along he treated both my girls exactly the same. He forgave his son for having a haram relationship with me, and was overjoyed when we got married.

I know he thought a lot of me, he was always telling me that I did a good job with the girls, even though he did always feed them whatever they wanted straight before mealtimes!

He was a man with a strong faith, and I truly believe he is now in a better place.

He was surrounded by his family and friends when he passed away (he was kept on life support until we agreed to turn the machines off) and he looked so peaceful.

I'm not sure what the point of this post is, I think I just needed somewhere to write this down.

Inna lillahi Wa inna ilaihi Rajioon.

Thank you hardlyeverhoovers, much appreciated.

Waynetta, you speak such beautiful words yet again. I've just read some of your thread with regards to removing your hijab, it sounds like you could do with some support as well, so I will say my dua for you tomorrow inshallah.

I'm very moved by everybody's support.
