INNA LILLAHI WA INNA ILAYHI RAJI'UN
'Surely we belong to Allah and to Him shall we return' (Surah Al Baqrah Verse 156.)
Lahore: Arifa Kareem Randhawa, the world's youngest Microsoft Certified Professional (MCP) and hailing from Pakistan, breathed her last after remaining admitted at the Combine Military Hospital (CMH) here on Saturday night.
She remained in intensive care unit at Combined Military Hospital (CMH) after suffering an epileptic seizure and cardiac arrest a few weeks ago. Microsoft founder Bill Gates had also asked his doctors in the United States to make arrangements for treatment of Arifa Karim.
Kareem, miraculously, had responded to certain stimuli, as recently as January 14. Aarifa's father, Amjad Karim Randhawa had said that she had shown the sign of life when her foot was stimulated. "Her toes curved slightly downward when her foot was tickled," he said, adding that earlier she had exhibited the Corneal Reflex, whereby her eyes blinked a few times.
Arif, 16, is a daughter of retired Lt. Colonel of Pakistan army. Born in 1995 to a Jatt Randhawa family in Faisalabad, Arfa Karim became the youngest Microsoft Certified Professional (MCP) at the age of nine in 2004. She kept the world title till 2008.
She was invited by Bill Gates to visit the Microsoft headquarters in the USA when she was only 10-year-old. In August 2005, Arifa was also awarded the Fatima Jinnah Gold Medal in the field of science and technology by then Prime Minister Shaukat Aziz.
She also received the Salaam Pakistan Youth Award again in 2005 set up by Pakistan's only Nobel laureate Dr Abdul Salam. She is also the recipient of the Presidential Award for Pride of Performance.
She is a great loss not only for Pakistan but for the World. May her soul rest in Peace n she become successful in life after death as well ameen. Please pray for her Maghfrat (forgiveness)
