Mohammed Redha

My brothers: Mohammed Redha and Hussain

Have you ever had the feeling that everything is going as planned, and its all routine, and it will be that way for a long time?? I had that feeling this week, and everytime you get that feeling something happens. SOmething shocking.

When me and my family lived in Denmark there were other Bahraini families in exile. One of those families was bait abu Ayat. For all my life those families were my relatives. Abu Ayat and Um Ayat are my aunt and uncle, there kids are like my brothers. We met at least once a week, we celebrated all the occasions together. and I remember the many days I slept over at their house.

I always think of their youngest son, Mohammed Redha as a kid. Even after we came to Bahrain, and they became our neighbors, I still thought of him as my little brother. He was 16 but to me he will always be a 6 year old. I used to tease him when we chatted on the msn, and when I met him by the parking he would always tell me whats going on with him. Either that he can drive, or that he is leaving to go study in denmark.

He did go, and two days ago, I got the news that my little brother Mohammed passed away. His brother had made Fa6oor and was waiting for him at home. Mohammed Redha was on the bus and he fell. He died of a heart attack. Mohammed is 16 years old, he didn't have any medical history. A fun sweet and innocent boy.

I couldn't accept that, I still can't.

Mohammed Redha, we all love you and we will miss you.

My heart ache for you. It is dreadful to loose someone you love, so young and who you had every expectation to share a long life with. I lost several close friends when I was very young and it has marked my life all these years. I do remember them fondly as young and vibrant. They will always be so as I grow old. Your fond memories will come to be a source of comfort to you. Speak of him often, thus keeping him vital in your life.

La 7owla wala quwata ila billah..

Its a small sister was telling me the news about her 'friend's cousin' and later on I came online to read about it here...

Healthy young boy dying of a heart attack... reminded me of imam ali's saying "maskeen ibn adam, taqtilahu ilsharaqa...tumatinahu il3araqa..wa ta2theehu ilbuqa"... we can die unexpectedly in an instant.. in full health...and no warnings...

Allah yir7ama o i9abur ahla..
