test for me right now, I think the whole
lot of people have heard about it is the death of my son and my brother.
this has done something to me that I've never felt in my life. Never ever been through this challenge.
And what I mean by challenge the feelings and the thought process and the amount of
reflection on life like now
really makes you understand the word in adalah. In Russia,
suddenly, nothing around you is
worth stressing too much about or
spending too much time with everything around you. Now you look at a way of how to turn it into something beneficial for your, for others for yourself and for the hereafter.
And money didn't mean much after that. My brother my brother was
the first time I talk now the Hamza
like indulgent bit of detail, he
had a business growing for him and
I think he was going to become millionaire in a couple of years. So successful and only only because of his character people loved him, he's really young and beautiful to get along with is a very honest person.
And my son, you know.
So he died in front of me
while I was giving him CPR
and he was very peaceful.
I think the last one a doll is worth thanks, has more of a meaning right now. Thank you, oh Allah for the past that you gave me. Thank you. I love the past that you prevented from me the bad things. Thank you Allah for giving my son and my brother teaching me love. And now connected me to something else Thank you Allah for the future that you will give me in the things that you aren't going to keep you're going to keep away from in the future because I know that you know, that will haunt me. Thank you, Allah. You've taken given me my son and taken him for a reason, the purpose that you only know within your wisdom and I rely on you.
It has increased my Eman, of course, the people around us.
of herbal Hamza, two moments in my life. I think I dream about them all the time. Now, and I don't think there's anything that's more important than
the moment my son's soul escaped my brothers. And the moment I buried them.
Like this. Had no respect for me. Who cares if you're his father, who are you? This is not your business.
This is not your biz. how I felt?
Didn't you see I'm here because that
doesn't belong to you. It
belongs to online.
And if you do trust in Allah, now's the time for you to prove it to yourself.
You're going to think about a lot right now.
Allah is our handwriting.
Maybe, maybe this was the best time for them to leave. Maybe I stayed for reason.
And the moment that they were buried, I was in the grave. And I felt like bashing my head on the walls.
I wanted to die without looked at my son. I said,
How can you put your son in the ground?
How dare you? You're the father. You're supposed to be protecting him.
You're supposed to be you know, you promised him things
from as my son Dad, I'm not always going to be there for you. So I'm going to teach you stand on your own two feet.
Within I remember those little boys a licen.
As he was sitting, standing in grave with his son
and I said the DA
and I note that Ma
what we call the Bucha. Now he said Allah love your Arctica Ibrahim. So you're departing.
When an Akula my
nanny say what pleases
You know what's funny, was What's ironic is that
I said the exact words of the prophets of ISIL and even the name his son's name was surprised.
And I could imagine
feeling what I'm feeling right now. Crying the way I'm crying
got stronger a little bit
you notice again with Russell advice
I have to walk away
you have to walk away
then my brother on Sunset it just lied there. I didn't know that we're gonna die but
before we left here just want to finish it with this something really good
and that is that before we left we went FISA Videla went to please Allah subhanaw taala and what did you want to pleasingly let our parents we wanted to make them happy.
My mother was missing us in Lebanon, my dad
and my brother and I we talked to them for the last time before we left and he got teary My brother was very very mad at the softness of it
I looked at my brother and son I said sure you want to go in this ugly time? Because this civil unrest there
my son had a big smile on his face.
He said for sure Don Tater.
Do anything can't wait to see them make them happy
we shook hands and we said okay. Let's make our intention right now. We're going to please Allah spawn time.
Because if we die there
shall we die? Shall and shall we die on path and if we return returning shall lie on the huge amount of mountains of rewards.
I thought we're gonna die in the Civil War and civil unrest.
Subhan Allah, my son and I, we went to UK. That was my last lecture to overseas with my son. And ironically, the UK people knew my son and my brother didn't know anyone else in my family. Why? Because a year before they paid for my brother to go with me, Hamid, he went with me on that tool.
With two men could called me up that time. I said, I want to take my brother with me. They said alright.
And then my son, they knew him when he was a child. And when he grew up,
and they, they had a love for them.
All of these allies setting up things.
And when we got this panel, they died in a place that I never, ever thought would just stop there on some snowmobile
and have had fun. My son wants to see Lebanon, he wants to see the snow
gets up on this thing.
It's meant to be safe.
He goes around once and he's alright.
I come walking towards them or somewhere else. And our cousin said to him
as he can go on again by yourself, take your father or your brother or your uncle. Because my brother you had experience on him knowing my brother had mishandled law he had jumped into anything so humble for people
I said and then they said either your brother or your your uncle or your father. Who does he choose? He chose his uncle.
Oh, if he if he told me they would have told me gone with him I would have gone on
to keep him safe.
My brother is going
on much as him before your son shows he's
no, they love each other on
your bathroom mirror. Oh mama. And
as soon as gathered those they love.
It took a turn. And that's when I saw them. Now they're taking off my father was there was their cousins were there to just sort of go off very nicely.
I had a feeling Allah had a voice in my head told me
they're going to smash into the wall and die. And then that
up could see it
as hell. And then it went and I forgot about it. I'm happy and my son's having fun. Okay, you're luckless but I want him to get off. I'm not happy about it. My heart's not
very uncomfortable, very uncomfortable.
Like the voice went.
I see them it's like as if only the angel of death was waiting. It's like you had a rope and just pull them in.
It wouldn't stop the petrol throttle got stuck.
And of all people
that have smashed into the wall at a high speed they couldn't could see them trying to maneuver they couldn't go
very hard for me to talk about but my son
passed away at the scene. I
By renting him and trying to
died within four minutes
my brother he survived it it'll be
about an hour he went into the ambulance with my son
and my brothers telling him and
following you and following you five minutes
in the hospital the
hug my brother and son
said don't worry, it's just temporary. When the angels come to you say this I don't know why I was saying that I was I was just saying a lot of things.
First thing I said is in any day when I said it quickly, because I knew I wasn't gonna hold myself was inhibited or when
I looked up in the sky, I said where I angels are just give me give me a minute just want to say goodbye to my son, you know.
The general formula is that the mother is stuck with

He went to hombre to see a

I didn't want to see anyone but Allah kept bringing some love with the whole family to support mache people. And the love was amazing.
I can't believe the whole world was talking about it making die for them praying for them my son used to superb on when I die on a lot of people to pray on me and I'm on my grave flat

May Allah assist his mother and his disease and their families well obviously they've gone through a lot of pain not just me but he's his grandfather died he said Father I want my growth flat and a lot of people to prey on me and he said to his cousin Imagine we got buried we died and got buried up in better up
that's exactly where we got buried. But these Allah brings you these things like I found these out. I remembered them his cousin with Tommy something in these dreams was coming. One week later I saw a dream.
