"That could be stress, anxiety or excitement. May God grant her eternal rest and give the family fortitude to bear the loss."
"How do you confirm it is ulcer or typhoid as reported ? Ulcer is not a day or two weeks issue. I think the poor medical provision must have killed her. A scan would probably have revealed intestines obstruction causing severe pain in her abdomen. May her beautiful soul rest in peace."
"I can't even imagine the devastative nature of this news. May Allah console her parents and the bridegroom. May her soul be admitted into paradise."

"So sad! But I know her tribe wouldn't associate her death to anyone not even village people, let others learn. May Allah grant her leniency and clemency."
