OK not 'Islamic' as such, but I felt really sad hearing about her demise, she formed part of the soundtrack of my youth Sad


Such a sad waste of life, she leaves behind a young daughter.

And when My servants question thee concerning Me, then surely I am nigh. I answer the prayer of the suppliant when he crieth unto Me. So let them hear My call and let them trust in Me, in order that they may be led aright. Surah 2  Verse 186

Before the drugs and all, she had such a strong and beautiful voice.

A sad ending for a troubled life.

We were talking about this in the chat the other day. Fame and wealth seem to be something people aspire to and actively seek, yet it is a major fitnah for most people. So many of these 'stars' are deeply unhappy, live crazy lives, abuse drugs, lose all their money, have friends and family using them, are divorced multiple times... How do we know that if we ask for it and Allah gives it to us we wouldn't turn into the same. Sometimes Allah withholds things from people for a reason.

I honestly felt sad. She had a great voice and her songs were really beautiful. Its such a waste. Does fame have to be associated with drugs? The pitfalls are so many. Succumbing very easy.

The Almighty Allah says,

"When a servant thinks of Me, I am near.
When he invokes Me, I am with him.
If he reflects on Me in secret, I reply in secret,
And if he acknowledges Me in an assembly,
I acknowledge him in a far superior assembly."

- Prophet Muhammad (SAW), as reptd by Abu Huraira
