The sick man is in medical distress and in urgent need of funds to undergo surgery. What you see on his stomach are not just mere scratches but part of his intestine bulging out.
A Facebook user identified as Sheikh Yahaya Abdullahi Mato, who shared the story and photos, revealed that he met the man in Abuja and was moved to tears when he told me how the family of his wife took her away from him leaving just him, his illness and his children whom he struggles to take care of.
According to Mato, the National Hospital Abuja charged him N450,000 (four hundred and fifty thousand Naira only) for the operation.
Below is what Mato wrote:
“INVESTMENT FOR AHKIRA (HEREAFTER)
“Invest on this man and his family “Sadakatul jariya” for Ahkira (hereafter) The man you see on this picture by name Umaru together with his children are Muslims from tsohon karshi, Nasarawa state, Nigeria. What you see on his stomach is not just a scratch but part of his intestine bulging out. I met him today at banex Abuja, I couldn’t stop the tears when he told me how the family of his wife took her away from him leaving just him, his illness and his children whom he struggles to take care of.
“This brother needs our help, the national hospital Abuja charged him N450, 000 (four hundred and fifty thousand Naira only) for the operation.
“Allah SWT said, when you are in a state of worship (sallat) and a child is crawling to a well, into harms way or a brother, sister is suffocating to death that you should quite the worship and help out the person. Allah is so Merciful to us that He wants us to know that the life of His creation is better than the worship as the worship can hold and be continued later but the life if lost due to negligence can not be replaced Allahu akbar!.
“Brothers and sisters, invest wisely for Ahkira (the hereafter). We spend over 1.5million for Ummarah (lesser hajj) for the purpose of worshiping Allah SWT but He said saving life is better than your ummarah (lesser hajj). The blessings that He will give you for saving the life of His creation is more than the blessings you will get for ummarah (lesser hajj).
