Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi Raaji'oon

Inna Lillahi wa Inna Ilayhi Raji’oon
'Aliza Ahmed Mirza, of Landsdowne Road, Ilford, was found in Forest View Road, Manor Park, on Saturday evening. She died in hospital.' (BBC news)
The whole community is saddened and shocked  by the death of a young girl that happened  in such close proximity .
Our thoughts are with  the parents, relatives and friends of Aliza.

Narrated Anas bin Malik (RA): We went with Allah’s Apostle (sallallahu alaihi wa salaam) to the blacksmith Abu Saif, and he was the husband of the wet-nurse of Ibrahim (the son of the Prophet). Allah’s Apostle took Ibrahim and kissed him and smelled him and later we entered Abu Saif’s house and at that time Ibrahim was in his last breaths, and the eyes of Allah’s Apostle (sallallahu alaihi wa salaam) started shedding tears. ‘Abdur Rahman bin ‘Auf said, “O Allah’s Apostle, even you are weeping!” He said, “O Ibn ‘Auf, this is mercy.” then he wept more and said, “the eyes are sheddingtears and the heart is grieved, and we will not say except what pleases our Lord, O Ibrahim ! Indeed we are grieved by your separation.” Sahih Bukhari (Book #23, Hadith #390)

Though we  did not personally know Aliza, we should feel the pain and the anguish:
“You will recognize the believers in their having Mercy for one another, and in their Love for one another, and in their Kindness towards one another; like the body, when one member of it hurts, the entire body hurts.”

May Allah grant her Jannah Ameen.
