When the darkness envelopes and the sounds muffle, the room gets colder and the pain grows, yet the only burning thought is:
“What of my baby?”
The emptiness inside of what was once the presence of life knows the answer too well.
From somewhere in the distance, an unknown voice utters the words that deafen all sounds and ring on everlastingly:
“I am sorry, but your baby did not survive.”
In this special edition of Muhammad Alshareef 2.0, AlMaghrib Institute presents:
“Mama, I’m Waiting for You in Jannah.”

The loss of a baby is an unthinkable trial, yet an undeniable truth. At the blow of first shock, the mother is struck with a tidal wave of questions, thoughts, and emotions that none can understand except her Lord. Her world shrinks, her heart hurts, and all matters suddenly become trivial.
With such a whirlpool of emotions, what is the single most crucial lifesaver to pull a mother out from an ocean of sadness?
The Messenger of Allah(sallah Allahu alayhi wa sallam) said, “By the One in Whose hands is my soul, the miscarried fetus will drag his mother to Paradise by his [umbilical] cord if she was patient [with the miscarriage], hoping to be rewarded.”
[Ibn Majah, Hadith # 1305]
The connection a mother feels with her unborn child is not imagined, but real. Knowing the essence of the Akhirah and the Mercy of Allah (swt) is what brings the coolness to the eyes and the pleasure to the heart.
