My Little Muslim Brother

Updated on May 13, 2012

my good memories of my little muslim brother

I had a little Muslim brother he was the quiet type

I use to say “Hey ahki how you doing why you standing over there all quiet”

He just looked with a smile “I said here's your buddies”

His buddies being my sons

Those boys could not wait to run to play with some toys

As soon as I look around they was gone in a split sec

Running about as little boys do, like time was'nt meant to last

Wow those boys used move fast

It reminded me of myself

I remember those days even more now as I see images of his young face

How I remember those days when he use to laugh

With a little childish chuckle, we was so tight like a belt and a buckle

He was a short little dude but a strong little dude

Him doing his kung fu moves with my sons having all the fun

I use to see him wearing his little kufi and Thawb before the prayer had begun

If you don't know a family that prays together insha'Allaah stays together

He would sit with us big brothers recite none other than Qur’an

of course what he knew or could understand

Whenever I came to see his father, all but who answered the door

was my little brother that won't answer no more

I remember all of that as I cry my tears

I remember my little brother throughout his years

I watched him grow up to a handsome young Muslim man

The last that I saw him I took him to get a base ball glove

This is what we big brothers do to show our love

But now my little bro is gone he returned back to his lord

I’ll miss him much, insha’ALLAAH he'll be mourned

Oh ALLAAH! Grant him Paradise give him that eternal bliss of rest and happiness Ameen!

      Assalaamu alaikum,

      This tribute to our young muslim brother was very sincere indeed. We will all miss Ibrahim. I did not know his as you all have but I know his parents. They are both very good parents and follow the Quran and Sunnah to the best of their means. May Allaah grant Ibrahim Jannah. Ameen. I know when we speak of death it tends to be a very sad issue but in this case it was a blessing. The way the little brother died will possibly grant him Jannah. Ameen.

      A lesson that I was speaking to Taalib and the kids about, is that we should all make dua to Allaah daily for a good death, just like Ibrahim did!!

      As salaamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatu,

      Many people knew my son for his quiet manner, but only a few knew him like his family knew him.

      Those who did get close enough to experience that side of Ibrahim, he considered family.

      Bro. Taalib, Brother-Uncle to Ibrahim, he truly loved and respected both you and Sister Khadijah as a pious young boy would look up to his elder loved ones.

      Bro. Taalib Ibrahim looked up to you for your gentle manner and the playful, caring approach you had when you advised him.

      Oh yeah, that side-flip you executed in the Dawah center, secured you as role model status in his sight.

      Sister Khadijah, Ibrahim loved and respected you.

      Ibrahim considered you one of his mothers.

      You were one of the first sisters my wife and I truly trusted to care for Ibrahim and his older sister Layla when they were small.

      Which shows that you did not betray the trust.

      O Allah! Forgive Ibrahim, elevate his position among the guided ones, and raise good successors for him from his progeny. Forgive us and him, O Lord of the People!

      Expand his grave and illuminate it for him!

      Allahumma Aameen

      Recorded by Muslim, Ahmad, Al-Bayhaqi, and others

      JazakAllahu Khairun for being there for the family.

      May Allah forgive us all and grant us Jannah and make us from amongst the believers. Aameen
