Ina lilahi wa Ina ilayhi rajioon
Shocking and sickening beyond belief to hear beautiful, 19 year old ‘Aya’, from Blackburn was brutally murdered yesterday . She was shot dead in the street on her way to buy some groceries.
Heartfelt condolences to her family.
One cannot even begin to describe the pain her family must be feeling. She is blessed to have passed during the holy month of Ramadan, even though her life was taken mercilessly.
Also, please stop circulating images of the “suspected killer”. Apparently that image is from an unrelated incident. Don’t share information if it’s not verified. In the meantime, make dua for her, her family, and pray the killer(s) are brought to justice.
انا لله وانا اليه راجعون
