It was a great honour to be invited to the second Memorial of your beloved daughter, Baraka. Her goodness and kindness shone through at the event on Sunday, and in all the wonderful contributions of family, her school and university friends, and her study supervisor at Cambridge. Sarah Joseph’s thoughtful talk about the impact of grief – and the importance to grieve – was enlightening. Your words, the readings from Qur’an recorded by Baraka and translated by Ayesha directed our thoughts to the Most High. It was a most uplifting experience; in fact the most uplifting memorial event I have ever attended.
I know The Baraka Khan Foundation will take forward the goodness and kindness Baraka excuded in her short life; the early projects for the Foundation are exciting and will certainly be a continuing legacy of Baraka’s life.
My thoughts and prayers are with you and the family.
With many thanks,
