“No doubt the death of a loved one is usually a painful episode in our lives because it is irreparable but we must always take solace in Allah for a good life spent by the deceased person. We should be consoled by the fact that the late Zainab lived a fulfilling life, having impacted positively on the people that came in contact with her during her lifetime.”

“She was a trusted partner, friend, wife, and great supporter to her husband, Usman Biri and as well as a caring and loving mother to her children.”
