Your days are numbered...

Well, the years are anyway. It seems that the condition that my husband has is not something that can be fixed and it is progressive. They hope that using oxygen all the time and a bi-pap at night will slow it down, but it looks like it will not be getting better. I don't think I have processed it yet, I just refuse to believe it. But it seems like maybe 10 more years is realistic. I don't know what to say... He wants to secure us financially, I just want him to get right with the deen. Please keep him in your dua. He's not that old kids... It would put him reaching his late 40's, which is just too young. I can only hope the docs are wrong.

Hi, I've been reading for a while but I don't usually comment. I just wanted to say that you'll be in my du'as and I know what you're going through. I was diagnosed a few years ago with a progressive genetic heart condition that there aren't any treatments for. Alhamdulillah, so far I've been ok, but I know what it's like to find out you have something that will probably kill you eventually. If you ever want to talk, my email is antieuclid@gmail.com.

Asalamalaykom Sis,

What a hard thing to hear and then process! Subhanallah! Only Allah truly knows our number of days. Take heart in that. I mean, the educated are only making educated guesses.

May all of our deen in the ummah increase during these next 10 years. Ameen.

Asalamu Walaikum Uhkti,
At the risk of sounding crass...please go with your hubby to a professional financial planner. Really, spend the money now and get things as taken care of as possible. And of course include in the plan a way for him to make hajj asap, inshallah.
I love you for the sake of Allah Uhkti. May Allah rectify your families affairs, ameen.

Asalaam Alaikum Sister,

Such a hard thing to find out, and to deal with and work through. Subhanallah! Like Ha said only Allah knows our number of days. Perhaps, inshallah, in the next few years there may be some discovery made that could help your husband to live longer.

Likewise, I also pray that Allah increases our deen in the years to come.

May Allah bless you and your family. and give you comfort and peace,

Aeryn

Assalamu Alaikoum, This must be very difficult for you, inshaAllah you will find the strength to cope. Take care and remember that Allah swt must believe you are strong enough as He only gives us what we can bear.
