Summary
Husna Ahmed was a victim of the Christchurch mosque terrorist attack on 15 March 2019. She was shot while looking for her husband, who was in a wheelchair. This heart-wrenching memoir details her husband's journey, and stands as a shining example of the indomitable human spirit. The couple had been praying when a gunman burst into the mosque. He shot and killed 51 people that day and injured many others. In this audiobook Husna's husband, Farid Ahmed, tells Husna's story, including the day of the attack. Farid describes the selflessness and bravery with which Husna lived his life. As well as looking after her daughter and paraplegic husband, Husna was an important member of the community, helping women and running classes for children. Her last selfless act was going back into the mosque to look for her husband on that fateful day, after she had already led other women and children to safety. Husna's husband, quite remarkably, forgives the alleged killer. Farid's philosophy of forgiveness, peace and love is an example of how faith and humanity can be tools for navigating even the most horrific of tragedies
