If I Can....

This post is a reminder to us all to cherish the gift that we received and never take it for granted....

It is a story of a person from Bahrain named Ibrahim Nasser. He has been paralyzed completely since birth and can only move his head and fingers. Even his breathing is done with the help of instruments.

 



It was the wish of this young man to meet sheik Nabeel Al-Awdi. So Ibrahim's father spoke the sheik on the phone in order to arrange a visit to Ibrahim.


This is sheik Nab eel in the airport



Ibrahim was very happy to see sheik Nabeel open the door to his room. We can only see his happiness from his expression as he is unable to speak






The moment sheik Nabeel entered Ibrahim's room
And this is Ibrahim's expression on meeting sheik Nabeel

Notice the breathing instrument around Ibrahim's neck.. he is unable to even breath normally.





And a kiss on the for head for Ibrahim
Ibrahim with his father, uncle and sheik Nabeel

Thus sheik Nabeel and Ibrahim started talking about da'wa on the internet and the striving it requires.
They also exchanged some stories
And during their conversation sheik Nabeel asked Ibrahim a question. A question that made Ibrahim weep... and tears rolled down Ibrahim's cheek.
 Ibrahim couldn't help but weep when he remembered some painful memories

 Here sheik Nabeel wipes the tears from Ibrahim's face

Do you know what question it was that made Ibrahim weep?

The sheik asked: Oh Ibrahim.. if Allah had given you health.. what would you have done?

And thus Ibrahim wept bitterly and he made the sheik, his father, his uncle and everyone in the room weep.. even the camera man wept
And his answer was: By Allah i would have performed my salaa (prayer) in the masjid (mosque) with joy.. i would have used the favor of health in everything that would please Allah Subhanehu we Ta'ala
 Dear brothers and sisters Allah has favored us with agility and health
But often we miss praying Salaa (prayer) in the Masjid!!! We look for excuses for missing the prayer.
And we sit for hours in front of the computer or TV
--
"And whosoever fears Allaah and keeps his duty to Him, He will make a way for him to get out (from every difficulty).

And He will provide him from (sources) he never could imagine"

[al-Talaaq 65:2-3]


To all muslims brothers and sisters be grateful for the gift that Allah s.w.t had give us thank Him for His gift by doing things that He had command us to do......

For my non muslims friend cherish and appreciated for what you have as you never knew someday you may not see it again forever....
