We drink the bitter sadness as a sweet drink...

Inna Lillah wa Inna Ilaihi Raji'oun. Shaykh Muhammed Saleh Almunajjid, the founder and manager of the famous IslamQA website, is praying Janazah on his own son Anas, who was stabbed to death by unknown people this Fajr.
The mother of Anas wrote a poem about her son. I (sheik  waleed Abdul Hakeem) tried to make a rough translation:
As the caravans of sadness have approached us, where are the tears to console us? ... We do not cry over our afflicted because of Qadar (predestination), but we drink the bitter sadness as a sweet drink... Because there is no objection to what our Qadar has brought, nor do we object to what our Creator decided, but with the shroudings leaving, we bleed with sadness... O Allah, please forgive us for our tears on Anas, as he was the star taking us through darkness... Our lord, make eternal blessings his resting place, and send down upon us patience as our companion in hardship.
May Allah reward the parents for their Eman and the beautiful poem, and cool down their hearts with tranquility and patience!
