Something about Aziz

I want to tell you a bit about my friend Aziz , he is a young man , nearly 27 years old , well educated , but he is sick , unfortunately he has cancer , doctors are not very optimistic about his case , but he’s resisting the desease courageously and refusing to give up , when i visit him i see always the smile in his face ,it’s not a warm smile all the time but he’s doing a huge effort to not appear in a weak situation ,he even reminds us that it’s his destiny and he won’t escape God’s will anyway ,he asks about the news in politics ,soccer and about daily life ,i really admire him and sincerly not sure i could behave like him if i was in his situation , but i think God help good people when they are in difficulties by giving them patience , and undoubtedly Aziz is one of those good people , sometimes we need to see sick people specially when they are young to remind ourselves that we are not eternal on this earth and that our lives don’t belong to us , yes i’m sure about this one , it’s a divine message , God wants to show us that the purpose of life is not to be rich or powerful but rather to help people by spreading justice and peace on earth in addition to worshipping Him , but unfortunately only a small number of people understand this kind of message ,i’m wondering who gave people the guarantee that they will live another day ? in fact no one and nothing can give us this guarantee , so why do the bad side has the upper hand upon the good one in our actions? Aziz case is a great lesson for me and my friends and also it’s a lesson for those who think their life is finished because they have a dangerous desease, at the contrary they should adapted themselves with the new situation and continue to exist till the end, they should even have projects for the rest of their life!!, what would they do if God give them the chance to live 10 or 5 or even one year ,would they waste it in complaining about their bad luck or blaming life for not being fair with them !! in this case they would be committing suicide , we must have the believe that every moment in life is a gift in itself and because of that we should spend it in creating happiness for ourselves and for other people, i mean the true happiness of being useful to others , not the false one of running after money and power , the real happiness is to be a candle for the others. In the case of Aziz , the candle has proven it could resist till the end with dignity in the front of the wind of cancer.

I had a good friend die of cancer some months ago myself. He and his family faced if very courageously.

If I ever catch myself feeling sorry of my own situation in some way, it only takes a moment for me to think of many people who have it harder than I do.
