By Zeba, The End.

Khalid has been diagnosed with autism. I can't even begin to explain how this feels. We're still in planning/coping/assessing mode. I just quit my job. Regularly, I cry myself to sleep. I can't write about this right now. I'm too busy trying to figure it out.

Hey hon. I've been reading your blog for a really long time. I'm also a mom of two, and I know that there is nothing anyone can say to make things feel better right now. After all, the world stops when our little ones are not well. But you are a good muslim woman, and I know from the depth of my heart that Allah will never test you more than you can bear. In time, what seems like a mountain of a problem, will smooth itself out. Continue to have faith, as you have in the past. Allah is by your side during these trying times.

InshAllah Khalid will be in my prayers like my other two children. May Allah bless you and your family to find strength. Ameen

Dear Sister, no words I write here will mean much to you in this time. Here are a couple of links where mothers talk about their feelings and experience while going through the same. Have a read through whenever ypu feel like it, hope it will help a bit.

May Allah grant you patience, strength and wisdom to go through this difficult time and strengthen your iman further. Ameen.

Asalaam Alakium

This is Layla from "a passage to egypt". I have been away for awhile and just got back onto your blog. I too hope that you don't close your blog. You have been a real inspiration. More than you realize. I will be praying for you and your family.

Sending big hugs your way.

Assalaam alaikum

May Allah give you the strength to come through this and may He bless Khalid and your family with his Mercy. A mu'min is always an optimist, and Zeba, mashaAllah you have the beautiful heart of a mu'minah and inshaAllah Allah's love will bring peace and happiness into your lives again. May He do what is best for you and Khalid in this life and the Hereafter.

Lots of love and inshaAllah you are in my du'as. Please don't lose hope. You've always come across as a very strong and cheerful woman, and we love you for it.
