“This is to my lovely and compassionate wife, the one who spent all her life to serve and support her husband and family…the one who made all of us happy…the one who stayed up all nights to ensure we are alright…the one who is still giving…the one who I will never forget her tenderness and affection…the one who brought up a family on good Islamic teachings…the one who has always made our children respect and obey their fathers…the one who is still working to ensure love and cohesion in the family…to you I say: I will never be able to reward you for what you have done for us.”
