Assalamualaikum. First off, I'd like to apologize to any brothers and sisters who either recently messages me, or posted on one of my old topics. You see, I've been going through a very traumatic time as of late, and it will be a big part of the main topic I'll be discussing here. On April 28, my grandfather died. For some, this may not seem like a huge loss; but to me, he was everything. He raised me my entire 16 years of life; he was the only father I ever knew, and the kindest, most amazing man I'd ever met. I admired and loved him so much, with all of my heart and soul. As far as I am concerned, he was my father, and I was his daughter; and he felt the same. We had an amazing relationship, and I miss him so very much. I can hardly stand it. I have no idea where my life is supposed to be right now. My grades in school are slipping, my concentration is lacking, I'm constantly arguing with my grandmother (who has also raised me, along with my grandfather), I'm dealing with the emotional stress of having lost someone so near to my heart, our car has broken down, I've lost my permit to drive, we're at ends with our family... I have no idea where to turn. Do I turn to the Bible or the Quran? I have no idea. Do I meditate in Buddhism? I don't know. I don't know the truth. I don't know where to turn. I don't know what to believe. I don't know where life is going right now, and I really would like a Muslim's perspective on all of this. Is there even a possibility that, in Islam, my grandfather made it to heaven? I don't even think I could fathom the idea that he didn't; he was the nicest man I ever met in my entire life. He did do things that were against Islam, but he was a Christian who knew no better... I have no idea what I'm specifically asking here, I just need some advice. Some help. Some way to know the truth, and perhaps a Muslim's perspective on how to deal with all of this. Because on my own, I am so lost. Sorry for the rant. Thank you all for answering, Amber
