There’s one news story that has ripped the heart of the UK at the moment and I echo the feeling of remorse and sadness at what has happened to April Jones. This five year old girl was abducted and the search continues to find her. I sincerely hope that she will be found alive but the fact that the police have now charged Mark Bridger with her murder, is a bleak outlook. For any parent, this is a heavy burden to bear and the pain is unfathomable. My hopes are with her parents and family that there is some good news for them.
As painful as it will be, if April has been murdered, there is comfort in the knowledge that all children, all those who do not reach puberty, go straight to Paradise. They will be spared the pains of this world and be enjoying wonders that we cannot even imagine.
And if Mark Bridger has murdered April, then I cannot understand what drives a man to do something as heinous as this. It’s hard to think what might make up for this crime, if this is what has happened.
May Allah Have Mercy on us all.
