  4. My heart goes out to the bereaved families and every other family grieving the death of their loved ones all over the world. May God/Allah grant them the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.

  5. Never argue over someone’s FAITH, because you can’t force the person to believe whatever you have to say.
    The BEST you can do is to accept what the person have to say, so it just look like THE ARGUMENT DIED BEFORE IT STARTED.
    You cannot change someone’s belief or opinion, it takes the GRACE of GOD. YOU CAN ONLY SURVIVE AT YOUR OWN PACE.
