Lessons of Life - Shukr

some of you might remember my mom's friend - who was having a tough time making the ends meet - Yes, last ramadan. She called up my mother in law this morning, and she's short by Rs. 20, 000 = $500 for her son's fees. The deadline is the 31st of this month.

Subhan Allah, its amazing how her own family have left her hanging . Her own brothers and sisters - i just can't imagine how someone can be so hard-hearted. Insha Allah, Allah will open other doors for her.

She gets some 10K as rent from her basement - which is all used up in the monthly expenses. In addition, she herself, hasn't been feeling too well - so frequent visits to the doctors is another expenses. Recently, she has been diagnosed with Spondylitis.

As I traced this post from my blog history, I was reminded of the lesson that was intended. Shukr. Alhamdulillah. So often we often.

I am a father of 3 beuitfull girls. I have had my own company for 10 yrs. I have lost everything. I have a negative bank account and have filed bankrupcy.
I am just about ready to be kicked out of my house that I have had for 15 yrs. My whole life I have gave and gave to evrything that I could. Now I am at
a point where I am on my knee's begging and praying that just one person could help me and my girls that have lost there mother and now are losing
evreything that they have also. I don't know what to do any more. I don't even know how they are going to get there next meal! I know what you are thinking
If you have internet you can afford food that would be true but a friend set this up for me because I will be living in my car by next week. This email is linked to my
paypal account that she set up and is managing for me. So if you can find it in your heart to help even if you email me one dollar it could feed my baby's.
Pay it foward and it might come right back. Anything I beg of you. May god bless everyone. Thank you for saving mine and my girl's life. frankwylie@ymail.com You can send check or money orders to C/O Frank Wylie 46w356 Jericho rd. Big Rock, Il. 60511
