Khadija Al-Asfoor Writes..

Ever since I had seen this page I have been checking it everyday, looking at what people wrote. I have always wanted to write something, but everytime I tried or thought about it, I did not know what to say. Its something so hard to accept. I could not think of the right words. I kept on remembering seeing samar in the hallways in school, sitting next to me in Physics class talking about her extended essay, tea, fu6oor, cornflakes, free periods, "the cool club", her witty jokes, her UCAS application, and any subject that could ever come up in anyones mind. I keep on remembering her mothers courage and kindness when we went to Samar's memorial. Looking at the courage of Samar's friends and family shows how amazingly remarkable she is, how much she means to so many people. Samar, is truly one of a kind, someone that can never be forgotten. Anyone who has met her would know that. You did not have to be one of Samar's closest friends to know how special she was and still is. It seems amazing how one person could have such a large impact on so many people, but knowing Samar it would be amazing if she didn't . I wasn't one of Samar's closest friends, but I will attempt to describe the kind of person she was to anyone. Samar was: - someone who would see you and come and say "ha! sha5bar?" and you could immediatly feel at ease.- someone you could say anything to without feeling embaressed or judged.- someone who you could talk to for hours and never feel bored. - someone who could make the most awkward situation become exactly the opposite in a few words, in one simple remark.- someone who would call while you are sick of studying just to show you that you aren't alone. - someone who could make you look forward to the most boring class just because she was in it.- someone who could connect to anyone and make them feel good about themselves.- someone you would want to be your friend. - someone who's lively spirit does not fade away or dissapear but leaves a mark wherever she visits.- a rare human being, truly unique which is why so many people are drawn to her and admire her.I am honored that I have known such an amazing person who has made such a large difference in these few years that many people don't make in their whole lives. I truly believe that she is still with us, that she will forever be remembered. I just want to say that I truly admire and respect Samar's family and close friends oo allah e9abirkum oo erai7kum oo eemasi7 3ala gloobkum; you portray everything that Samar is.

اللهم يا جامع الناس الى يوم لا ريب فيه اجمع ( سمر) بنبينا محمد صلى الله عليه وسلم كما جمعت بين الروح والجسداللهم اغفر لسمر حتى لا يبقى من المغفرة شيء اللهم ارحم سمر حتى لا يبقى من الرحمة شيء اللهم ارض عن سمر حتى لا يبقى من الرضا شيء اللهم اغفر لسمر عدد خاقك واغفر لها مداد كلماتك واغفر لها زنة عرشك واغفر لها رضا نفسك برحمتك يا ارحم الراحميناللهم ان سمر في ذمتك، وحبل جوارك فقه من فتنة القبر وعذاب النار، أنت الغفور الرحيم
