Libya: Blogger's Son in Accident

“I hadn't seen Trabilsia, who has the blog Tripoli Ghibli online for a while and was wondering what was up. Finally got hold of her and found out that her son Tarek was in a serious car accident last Friday. He was in ICU for 2 days but is stable now. He's suffered injuries to his arms and they are hoping to take him to Tunis soon. The power of prayer is an amazing thing. Please remember Trabilsia's son in your prayers!” writes Libyan blogger Khadija Teri.


  • our prayers with Tarek and hope he will get well soon and speedy recover

  • Dear Amira ,
    I thank you immensely for your concern. Tarek ( my son ) is now better and resting at home, till he can be taken to Tunis.
    I thank all who prayed for us.

    This is what keeps me going : (Serenity Prayer)

    God /Allah grant me the the Serenity
    to accept the things I cannot change,
    Courage to change the things I can,
    And Wisdom to know the difference.

    May Allah /God bless you all……
