Dear brothers and sisters,
As-salamu alaykum wa rahmat Allah was barakatuhu
Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji un (indeed, to Allah we belong, and to Him is the [inevitable] return)
I trust this finds you all in excellent health and high imaan inshaAllah. Most of you are probably, now, aware that Sheikh Waleed Basyounis 4 year old son, Yousuf, has been diagnosed with Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia (ALL). We ask Allah the Merciful the Compassionate to make this easy for little Yousuf, to grant him strength and patience and a swift and complete recovery from which no trace of illness remains. We also ask Allah – subhanahu wa-taala- to grant patience and fortitude to the Basyouni family, and quick relief from this calamity, may Yousuf come home to
his parents and siblings in full health and spirits, Ameen thumma ameen.
You may perhaps be able to imagine the devastating impact this news must have had on Sheikh Waleed and his family. A difficult few months lie ahead of them when little Yousuf will be making frequent hospital visits for his treatment, it will be a hard time for them all and Yousuf will require special care and attention, especially in the face of possible side effects from necessary treatment.
We would like to give an opportunity of accruing reward to each and every one of you. For obvious reasons, indeed as you will understand, Sheikh Waleed does not have any medical insurance and Chemotherapy is not an inexpensive treatment. Because of this, Sheikh Tawfique has requested that we set up a fund to collect contributions that will
assist the family to pay towards Yousufs medical expenses. Please click on the chip-in link below to start contributing to this just cause.
May Allah subhanahu wa taala- reward you for your desire to contribute, make this heavy on your scales on the last day and accept it from us as something that is done sincerely for His pleasure. Please remember Yousuf, his family and indeed all your brethren who are bearing patiently in the face of trials and tribulations in your duaa.
