خنساء حمص

يقول المثل الشعبي ((ضربتين على الراس ابتوجع)) فكيف لو كانت أربعة او خمسة فأي وجعٍ سيكون؟! أم محمد سيدة كان لها من الأولاد خمسة ولم يبقى إلا واحداً، استشهد أبنائها الأربعة وإبنها الخامس مفقود لا تعلم عنه شيء، أي صبرٍ تصبره هذه الأم الثكلى وأي كسرٍ كسر قلبها الملتهب حسرةً على أبنائها الشهداء وابنها المفقود. فقدت بصرها من شدة البكاء، رأيتها وهي تودع جثمان ابنها الذي استشهد مؤخراً في المشفى الميداني في حمص، كانت تمرر يديها على جسده وتقبله وتضمه الى صدرها وتحمّله السلام الى من فقدتهم من قبله ولم تبرح ذلك حتى رفعوا جثمانه من بين يديها ليشيعوه الى مثواه الأخير وهي تحتسب أمرها إلى الله سبحانه وتعالى ومشت حانيه الظهر تتوكأ على ابنتها بصبرٍ لم أرى له مثيل وما زالت أم محمد تنتظر عودة ابنها الخامس ليجبر كسرها ويطمئن قلبها عليه

حميدة-

There is saying that goes “two hits on the the head are painful”, what if they were four or five; how painful would that be?! ‘Um Mohammad’ is a woman who has five sons, only one of whom is left alive. Her four sons are martyrs and the fifth is missing and she knows nothing about him. What kind of patience does this woman have, and what kind of pain is her heart enduring over her children? She lost her sight from all her crying. I saw her saying goodbye to her son who recently died a martyr in the field hospital in Homs; she was running her hands along his body, kissing him and holding him close to her heart. She gave him salutes to take to those she had lost before him. Then they lifted his body from her hands to take him to his final resting place while she surrendered her fate to God. She walked away with her back bent, using her daughter for support with a patience that I have never witnessed before. ‘Um Mohammad’ is still waiting the return of her fifth son, for him to mend her pain and reassure her heart.

-Hamida
