Saving Abu Talhaa: True Humanitarians help a True Humanitarian

Allah the Most High said:

                 المائدة: ٣٢

“And if anyone saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of all mankind.” {5-Maaidah:032}

The brother’s name is Abu Talhaa abdur Rahman Baa’Alawi, husband and father of three. He was trying to make it to his home underneath the watch of a houthi sniper to get some honey for his sick infant daughter. Not knowing the sniper either moved his position or they added another sniper. He was shot in the back of the head and the bullet came out his left cheek. The students in the area had a hard time getting his body because he was laying in firing range of the sniper. One brother (another true humanitarian) could not see abdur Rahman be left like this so he supplicated and rushed forward to retrieve abdur Rahman and was able to drag him back to safety. 

The injury caused abdur Rahman’s brain to loose communication with his body and to be in a comma like state where he cannot breathe on his own. For the last four days a group of students, including some from his family, have been taking shifts 24 hours a day to pump air manually into his lungs, without this his heart would fail. There is no automatic machine here to do the work and the local hospital has been damaged by shelling from the houthis. The heart monitor machine indicates he still has life. Sheikh Muhammad Hizaam said we should continue as long he has a sign of life. 

As we speak the ICRC are trying to get through the houthis to get abdur Rahamn and another brother with a head injury from the houthi snipers (his injury is less critical but still serious). We ask Allah the Healer and the One Who causes life and death to make Abu Talhaa and the other brother successful (either heal them or make them from the Shuhadaa).
