In Memory of My Late Father, NazirAhmed Daud Satia (1947 – 2013)
Here in Blackburn was where his life started,
He wasn’t just a man, he wasn’t just a father, but so ever kind-hearted;
Principled, firm, full of awe and his beauty shone through,
With a voice so strong, every word spoken true.
In India, is where his life began,
His move to England was Allah’s plan.
Justice was his strength, his aura so majestic,
Community work, joining ties, his charity and courage were fantastic.
His sincerity, selflessness, humility and much more,
Such men are rare, that’s for sure.
Memories of Abba, I will cherish forever,
I pray in Jannah we will be together.
His aura and character sticks in my mind,
His laughter and smile it was one of a kind!
You are now far from our sight
Your beauty disappeared like the day covered by night.
Thank you for a lifetime of lessons I will never forget,
It only seems like yesterday when your sun finally set.
The next stage of your life has been set to begin,
Allah elevate your status and resurrect you without a single sin,
We miss you deeply and wish you all the best,
Allah bless you with every stage of success.
I won’t be sad, I won’t shed a tear,
I know the angels await you, they proclaim: “Do not be sad and do not fear.”
I pray you rest forever in peace and harmony, I pray you will never have pain or ache,
Know for sure, we all love you deeply for Allah’s sake.
Your son, indebted to you forever (Five years on).
