Never Forget Those Who Stood By You In Your Time of Need - Hasan Mussa

On 14th June 2017, I belted it from Leicester to London and stood at the foot of the Grenfell Tower watching it engulfed in flames knowing full well I will never see my beloved again. Whilst so many people are pointing fingers as to who was to blame, I just wanted to personally thank the emergency service, in particular the brave London Fire Brigade ! They were unable to save my wife, but I witnessed their smoke covered faces, pain filled eyes and bravery as they battled the blaze.

I asked a firefighter if he had been to the 17th floor as my wife was still there, he was convinced he had been and there was nobody left. After telling him she is still in the flat, he put his mask back on and said "I'm going back.. I'll find them!"

My heart knew I would never see her again, but that man filled me with hope and for that I am eternally grateful!
Give hope to those in need and never forget those who stood by you in your time of need.

May Allah grant Husna and her family eternal peace! Al Faathihah
