This is the beautiful recitation of a ten year old girl, Bara’a who’s mother died after severe cancer spread through her body. On the day she was severely ill, the hospital called the father to come urgently. Leaving his daughter in the car, he started to cross the road when he was hit by a passing car. Left an orphan, Bara’a did not loose hope in the grace of Allah, God almighty. As her parents taught her when she was younger to memorize the Holy Qur’an, she used to recite while visiting her mother in the hospital.
Subsequently, Bara’a also is suffering from cancer which has spread quickly though her body. Until now her character shows acceptance of God’s will in her life. She is an example for all of us. May Allah grant her mercy.
