“A complete and dedicated wife, Hajiya Lauratu’s support to the throne and her husband are legendary and exemplary. She will be greatly missed by everybody within the Emirate for her motherly love, care and concern. It is my fervent prayer that Allah (SWT) grant her Aljanna Firdausi, forgive all her sins and accept all her good works.”
