    My brother in Islam

    This is an article someone mailed me please read it

    This is something that is very personal and important
    >to me. I hope that you will learn and benefit from it.
    >Let me begin by saying "Bismillah", in the name of Allah. When I
    >started University (I am male in my early twenties) I had met
    >another Muslim brother.
    >We had become good friends, but this friendship was
    >not like any other ordinary friendship, I would have
    >done anything for him, he was like my real brother.
    >During our last year of University, this brother of
    >mine announced that he was engaged and that he was to
    >be married after he graduates this year and finds
    >himself a job. I was glad for him and so was he. He
    >talked non stop about getting married, I was sort of
    >getting jealous of him, because the brother had it
    >made for him, finishing school, getting married and
    >especially coming from a wealthy family.
    >On day this brother was to meet me at the coffee shop.
    >He showed up, but astonishingly he wasn't smiling and
    >wasn't talking about his fianc?e. I asked him what was
    >wrong, he asked if we could talk somewhere privately
    >and we did. Finally I knew why he was upset. He had
    >told me that he found out that he had a brain tumor
    >which was malignant, which meant it had become
    >cancerous. When he told me the news, his voice was
    >quivering and tears were streaming down his cheeks.
    >I had never seen him like this before. I tried keeping
    >in my tears and I tried not to show that I was hurt
    >also. I was burning up inside and things were racing
    >through my mind. I kept thinking, how could this have
    >happened? A man who had everything made and had
    >everything perfect. I kept it inside because I did not
    >want him to see me upset.
    >I saw this brother slowly go down. He had to drop out
    >of school at his last year because he began to lose
    >his memory and he started to repeat himself over
    >again. He did not have a chance at school without his
    >memory. This brother was intelligent, but after, he
    >became lost.
    >He was told that his fiance?s family and her parents
    >did not want their daughter to marry him, because he
    >had no job and basically no future. This was hard for
    >him, I remember he would cry to me about her and how
    >he cared for her and how hopeless he felt.
    >Later, the brother had problems writing and his right
    >eyesight was fading. The tumor was on the left side of
    >his brain so it affected everything on his right.
    >Because of his memory loss, the brother soon forgot
    >suras and he even forgot how to pray. A year later,
    >his right arm was paralyzed and his eyesight was taken
    >away from him. It was the hardest thing for me to see.
    >The brother I loved so much as going through so much.
    >I began coming over everyday helping him recite suras.
    >When I was recited sura Fatiha to him and he was
    >slowly repeating after me, I looked at him and I
    >thought, this was the same brother who was so
    >intelligent and was to finish school. This was the
    >same brother who came from such a wealthy family. This
    >was the same brother who talked for days about getting
    >married and raising a family. This was the same
    >brother who had everything. But now he can barely
    >remember what I said to him ten minutes ago, he can't
    >get married, and now he is struggling to read Qur'an,
    >he was not much of a practicing Muslim so it was
    >harder for him to recite the Qur'an. This man was now
    >turning towards Allah, he dropped EVERYTHING and
    >turned towards Allah. Allah gave him everything, and
    >he could take everything away just as easily.
    >A month ago, I had received a call saying that the
    >brother passed away and that his janaza is today. I
    >washed his body with a couple of other brothers and I
    >saw his lifeless body. He was buried and after that I
    >returned home. The next day, I sat down wondering to
    >myself about the power of Allah. My brother's death
    >made me realize that we forget what our purpose of
    >being here is for: To serve Allah. You could have
    >everything, but do you have anything that is
    >important? I spent six years knowing this brother, and
    >caring for him. I never once shed a tear when he was
    >alive and not even when he passed away. But the day
    >after his death, I did cry because I thought about the
    >power of Allah. I thought about my brother. We always
    >say that we will return to Allah, but we never really
    >believe it. If we did, then we would struggle to read
    >the Qur'an and pray to Allah like my brother did.
    >My brother had his eyesight taken away from him, his
    >arm was paralyzed and his memory was lost, but he
    >still got up every morning and he insisted and I
    >repeat, insisted on reciting the Qur'an. But we are
    >able, but we still do not struggle to read the Qur'an.
    >We do not really believe that we will return to Allah,
    >or else we would struggle for Allah.
    >My brother had love for materialistic objects, but
    >when death approached him, those things were no use to
    >him because he knew those things were not going to
    >lead him to Jannah (Paradise) without his Iman. Allah can give
    >and take things easily whenever and wherever. I love
    >my brother and I pray that Allah will accept him, and
    >I humbly request that prayer be made for him. I do
    >pray that you have a true belief of Allah and our
    >return to Him because if you do have this fear, you
    >will struggle for your Islam to the best of your
    >ability before you can say it is too late. May we all
    >be rightly guided. Ameen
    >your brother in Islam
