Al-Beltagy's letter to killed daughter Esmaa
Muslim Brotherhood leader Mohamed al-Beltagy wrote a letter to his daughter Esmaa killed on Wednesday by snipers in Rabaa al-Adawiya
The letter published on the social media account of al Beltagy expressing his feeling to his daughter reads as follow:
"My dear daughter and invaluable teacher…
I don’t bid adieu to you conversely I say “see you tomorrow”.
You lived walking tall challenging the atrocity. Rejecting all obstacles you fall in love with freedom. You were looking for new horizons silently in order to resurrect and reconstruct the Ummah so that it can take the place it deserves within the course of civilization. You did not mess up with what your peers dealt with. Your thirst of learning and knowledge never ended although you were always the best at school.
In this short life time I couldn’t have enough of talking to you. I didn’t have enough time to be happy and to enjoy the life. When we lastly came together in Rabaa al-Adawiya you expostulated that “You are away from us even when we are together.” I told you that “This life is not as long as we can have enough of each other, I am praying to Allah to bestow us with this chat in the Heavens so that we can have enough of each other.”
I saw you in a bridal gown in a dream two days before you were martyred. You were unprecedentedly beautiful. When you sat beside me I asked you “Is it your wedding tonight?” “My wedding will not be in the evening it will be at noon,” you responded. I understood what you had meant when I heard that you had been martyred on Wednesday noon. I prayed to Allah to accept you as a martyr. Your martyrdom reinforced our belief that we are on the right path and our enemies are in void.
I am extremely sorry that I could not be with you on your last goodbye, I could not see you and kiss your forehead for the last time and have the honor of performing a funeral prayer for you. The thing that kept me from doing these was not the fear of death or dark cells; instead it was to sustain the cause you died for (the main targets of revolution).
The ruthless bullets shoot you on chest while you were resisting the atrocity. What a great determination and satisfied soul you had. I believe that you were loyal to your promise to Allah and He is loyal to His promise to you. That is why instead of us Allah bestowed martyrdom to you.
Lastly My dear daughter and invaluable teacher...
I don’t bid adieu to you conversely I say see you tomorrow … Our meeting will be on the banks of Kawsar Pool in Heavens with the Prophet and his companions; in a honorable position and close to the power and rule of Allah; a meeting when our hopes of having enough of each other forever."
