Rafael C.
A Prayer For My Brother


Because we were raised by the same mother we are one by blood, though our beliefs are of two perspectives.


I have said dua'a for you brother each time I prayed. I remember seeing you over the summer; I was afraid that though you loved me, my belief in Allah, and Islam seperated us. In time and with patience, your love shined through unconditionally. We are of the same mother, despite our beliefs. I am proud of you for your convictions and ability to face the unknown. I pray that Allah (swt) keep you safe and whole and allow you to return home. I love you unconditionally and will always. I have been worried but of the resolve that you are trained well and are a leader. I will pray for your safety and safe return home. You give our family so much. I am glad that Allah (swt) gave me a brother of your caliber. Allah (swt) bless and keep you in the coming days. Not only are my prayers with you, but Mom, Candy, Sarah, Renee', Andrew, Laylaa, and Elijah and all the family have you in their prayers.

Your Loving Sister,

Saffiya M.

Brother,

As Salaamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuhu,

Today I was thinking about you. Of your beautiful heart and how you strive to be a humanitarian. You shared with us, that the children are hungry there and asking for water. Such is your way; concerned about others even in this time of war. I have always known your heart to be good. I came across this ayat and verse in Qur'an. I wanted to share it with you.

It is Allah Who made the earth a stable home for you, and the sky a dome, and formed you, giving you the best of forms, and provided you with good and wholesome things. That is Allah, your Lord. Blessed be Allah, the Lord of all the worlds.

He is the LIving -
there is no god but Him-
so call on Him, making your deen sincerely His.
Praise be to Allah, the Lord of all the worlds.

-Qur'an, Ghafir, 40:64-65

As the days go by, I will continue to pray for you.

Oh, Allah, watch over my brother who is so kind of heart. Now and always.

Saffiya M.

I am taking this time to thank all who have added their prayers and thoughts to this prayer circle for my brother. I continue to pray for him and all who are over in the Gulf. I ask everyone that I know to pray for the troops in the Middle East. Prayer is the best gift we can offer to them, as we ask for their safety and swift return home.
Allah *swt* bless them all.

Ameen,

Saffiya M.

Psalm 91
1 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. [1]
2 I will say [2] of the LORD , "He is my refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust."

3 Surely he will save you from the fowler's snare
and from the deadly pestilence.
4 He will cover you with his feathers,
and under his wings you will find refuge;
his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
5 You will not fear the terror of night,
nor the arrow that flies by day,
6 nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness,
nor the plague that destroys at midday.
7 A thousand may fall at your side,
ten thousand at your right hand,
but it will not come near you.
8 You will only observe with your eyes
and see the punishment of the wicked.

9 If you make the Most High your dwelling-
even the LORD , who is my refuge-
10 then no harm will befall you,
no disaster will come near your tent.
11 For he will command his angels concerning you
to guard you in all your ways;
12 they will lift you up in their hands,
so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.
13 You will tread upon the lion and the cobra;
you will trample the great lion and the serpent.

14 "Because he loves me," says the LORD , "I will rescue him;
I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
15 He will call upon me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble,
I will deliver him and honor him.
16 With long life will I satisfy him
and show him my salvation."

Despite the fact that the fighting has lulled, we know that prayer is still needed. we continue to feel blessed every time we hear from you and our love for you as our brother, son, father, uncle, friend, and motivator just continue to grow. Actually, it is overflowing now. Remain safe and alert and I pray that Allah *swt* guides your footsteps in peace and longevity.

May Allah *swt* keep you in care,
