And when Sheikh Mahmoud had a new son, and he reached the age of a few years, and she imagined him to be her son who died in Scorpio And his grandmother used to remember him and cry for him and sing to him (Barhoum Barhoum Hakini), which is the song that coincided with the death of her son, Nayel, may God have mercy on him.
In the month of Rajab of the year 1376 AH, Khadija bint Muhammad bin Ismail Fatani died in Makkah Al-Mukarramah, in her house in Al-Qashashiya, at the age of about 75 years.
Almost so, the family mourned for her, and our grandmother, Khadija, who struggled in her life and who bore Arab features that she acquired from her Egyptian mother, wept.
Originally, she was the pilgrims’ raft in the name of her father, Sheikh Muhammad bin Ismail Fatani, who was entrusted to her after the death of her brother, Sheikh Muhammad Noor Fatani, and Daoud abandoned the raft for his travel to Malaysia.
May God have mercy on you, Khadija, and make you dwell in his spacious gardens.
And your memory was and still is the focus of our memories and our happy memories with you in the shade of your tenderness, kindness of heart and generous disposition - may God have mercy on you and make Paradise your resting place and may God unite us with you in the stable of His mercy.
