The Only 25th Birthday I Care About

March 19, 2007

So after returning for a series of posts for several weeks, I’ve once again regressed into not posting. I think this time it’s a result of this OB/GYN rotation destroying any creative impulses I might have and its time-demands preventing me from having the time to actually write my thoughts down. Nonetheless, while xanga itself seems to have died down, I still have some posts that I ought to find the time to finish, if only for the sake of having such thoughts preserved for myself.

While there are many things I could talk about in a post after 3+ weeks (such as the three year anniversary of this xanga, ie, 3/11/04)–and I’ll Inshallah get around to it in a few days or so–today (March 19th) is a day of significance in my life, and something which I think is important to others as well…

…because you see, today would have been the 25th birthday of my beloved brother, Mohammed “Hammoudi” Hussein (rahimahullah) who passed away in 2004.

I had set up a birthday alarm and saw this email reminder a few days ago:

Three years later, I still miss my brother.

Please do me a favor: take some time out today to read some Qur’an, make dhikr, or make du’a and send the barakah from that to my boy.
