    Me and all my family members pray Allah swt for her magfirah and sabar for her family members. Being a childhood friend and neighbor of Javed and his family, I also enjoyed her love and blessings when we were attending same school CMS and also going together to madrasa.

    My heartfelt condolences to Javed and family. Her photo should have been published. Is it against Islam to publish her photo?
