Blogger Hadeel in Danger

To many, Hadeel is a blogger. To me she's much more. She's the closest friend I've had since college. She's the black rock my soul grabs onto in it's ongoing attempts at escaping the nowness of pain and working towards a brighter future.

Hadeel is a determined, hardworking, and intelligent woman who despite all cultural pressures manages to stand up for herself as well as other "under spoken" members of the society. I woke up this morning with a msg from her sister Arwa saying "Hadeel needs your prayers." And later found a letter from her father in Sahat, stating she's in intensive care.

Please join her family in prayers, her mother, father Mohammed Alhodaif, sister Arwa and family who were not allowed to spend the night at her side in the Intensive Care Unit. Hadeel has been unconscious for over 12 hour now. She fell into a coma while sleeping. Right now, her heart and breathing are dependent on outer sources.
* * * * *
updates:
April 21, 8 pm pacific, arwa, "hadeel is breathing on her own, she was given water and accepted it."
April 22, 1 am pacific, father, "hadeel is not breathing on her own, she is still in a coma, and soon to be assessed by a medical group."
May 16, 2 am pacific, Hadeel has passed away.
* * * * *
You are a survivor Hadeel.
You have to come back.
You have to see for your own eyes that there's an entire life, people, places, futures and hopes that cannot go on without you. There's my heart :(

I do not know Hadeel personally, but I have been reading her blog for some time now. She is a great example of the role models we desperately need for our young people in Saudi. Anyone that reads her blog cannot help but come up with that conclusion.

I am very saddened by this news. My wife and I will keep her in our thoughts and prayers and wish her a speedy recovery.

Please, keep us posted on her progress.

Aysha said...

Will do Saudi in US. I certainly agree with your description of Hadeel. Thanks to both you and your wife for your sincerity.

Sad news indeed. Every once in a while we get a reminder of how fragile and helpless we are ... we get a reminder of how unfair this life is.

I hope she gets better, and I feel for her family and friends.

Aysha said...

I'm all gratitude.

اللهم شافها وعافها، واجعل هذا مجرد غسيل اذنوبها

Aysha said...

You don't need my thanx, I know, but thank you guys for your sincerety and concerns. The tough thing about coma's, is that as much as we are eager to get news, and to repeatedly ask family members about updates, as more pressuring it is to them. I promise, if I hear news of any progress I'll post.

الله يقومها بالسلامة يا رب
اللهم رب الناس أذهب البأس .. اللهم أنت الشافي المعافي لا شفاء إلا شفاؤك.. اللهم اشفها شفاءً لا يغادر سقماً

اللهم برحمتك نستغيث ، برحمتك نستغيث ، برحمتك نستغيث

نسألُكَ يا مجيبُ يا منّان ويا لطيف ، نسألكَ برحمتك التي وسِعت كل شيء ، وعَفوَك الذي شَمِل كلَ شيء

نسألكَ اللهم ، أن ترفع عنها وتفرج عنها كربتها
نسألكَ اللهمَ أن تُرضِها وترضَ عنها ، وأن تُعافِها وتعفُ عنها

لا حول ولا قوة إلا بالله

اللهم ارفق بقلوب أهلها وأحبتها ونجها من كل سوء واكتب لها الطويل من العمر على خير وجه يرضيك

شكرا جزيلا لك أخت عايشة على حسك الإنساني العالي. هذه اول مرة اعرف فيها ان الأخت هديل مريضة. وفي مثل هذه الظروف لا يملك الإنسان سوى الدعاء بأن يشفيها الله من مرضها ويعيدها سالمة معافاة الى عائلتها ومحبيها.

Aysha,

Sorry to hear the sad news about Hadeel.
May she rest in peace.
My condolences..

Anonymous said...

I learned just now that'Heaven's gates' have become more real for Hadeel than its shadow she creted for us on the net. May her soul rest in peace, and may God reward her good deeds and open heaven's gates for her.
Hearty condolences to her family, all her friends and well-wishers.
Joseph

Aysha said...

Saudi in US, Joseph, thank you for your sincerity and warm heart.

Marahm said...

I am saddened and sorry to hear the news of Hadeel's passing. I never knew her, nor read her blog (I'm not that good in Arabic) but I've learned enough about her to realize that her loss is not only personal, for her family and friends, but also societal, as she supported and encouraged so many people.

From Allah we came, and to Allah we shall return.

A year ago, Hadeel passed away.
