I hate Cancer the most

Aliya Bashir

Izhar Bhai, you were a born storyteller. But, somehow I failed to understand that why this time you couldn’t narrate things with clarity. You would always talk in detail with us to be clear while giving details to anyone about anything, irrespective of complexity of the situation. So, how you could this time, yourself break the rule?
That day when you were all fine and reshuffling some documents in your office, I mustered all my courage to ask you about the details of the disease, but you were interested to discuss the ‘Salvage’ rather than feeling low about why this and that happened, like always. I know you never wasted a moment to let negative vibes creep in. And why not! After all you were an epitome of optimism at its best.
Bhai, I never hate diseases before, as I had always believed that ‘Diz- ease’ is somehow a communion with Allah and to have a reality-check, one need to go through the tough phase to know the importance of health without any grievances. I was sure and the Islamic connotations also backed my feeling. The most important fact is that these Diz-eases, eases our tumult and brings us more nearer to Almighty and in his remembrance of him, our heart feels rest.
Brother, since the day this wicked disease came into your life, my perception towards everything, especially for Diz-eases changed forever. From this day onwards, among all incurable diseases I hate “C-A-N-C-E-R” the most.
Today, I won’t hesitate to rebuke this cancer as much as I can! Can-answer, Kayn- Sir, Ceeee-ancer, Ca-ncer, Re-canC, Canc-eeeerrrr, Ncer-Ca, Ans-we- anC….. The heartless disease hardly spares anyone, once it catches hold; it just cripples the whole tribe, let alone the victim. Just like Sorcery (witchcraft), it entangled you! But, Bhai you had no foes so how could it (evil spirit) affect you??? Or does ‘Envy’ facilitate the spellbound!
Izhar Bhai, the cunning disease knew that you had little time to think about yourself. So this ‘Opportunist’ took full freedom of it. Bhai it took you an extraordinary event to actually pay attention to symptoms that had been bothering you for quite a while.
Cancer, you are such a useless creature that you didn’t had any other work other than to bother my brother, up to the extent that you took his life, by being so vindictive. Why so much hatred Cancer. How can you be so disgusting? And see your guts; you don’t see time, situation, gender, person or family, before smacking into somebody DNA and spread your malignancy. You are so heedless. Pitiless. Irrational. Scoundrel. Devastating. Painful. Money-Minter. Hurtful. Narcissist…..and what not! You beast! I just want to ask that where from you get so much jealousy? What prompts so, Cancer?
See, you needed money; he gave you ahead of your expectations. You also wasted his precious time and he still tolerated your arrogance and spent as much as time with, as you needed, even without knowing you. He never enquired where from you came. But, still you have this habit of bumping into anybody’s life, even without any intimation. You are so in- disciplined and morally so backward!
Do you know how much your disturbances had affected Izhar Bhai’s ability to work, his relationships and his overall quality of life? Yet, he didn’t ridicule you. As he was not like you! You are so shrewd. If you didn’t know the value of human lives, then how dare you come into his life? Nobody invited you ever. Not his habits. Personality. Hereditary or Sedentary lifestyle. What then if he liked Coffee. Don’t dare to give me that shameful reason. I know how much in return he used to take fluids. Now common speak up, what other reason you can cite. Or, has snake bitten you now! I pity you! I bet, you will have an awful end in both worlds Insha Allah. You didn’t left him with any seed of hope.
You Cancerous growth! What then if the nature of his work was full of stress. That didn’t mean you can justify taking anyone’s precious life by giving these lame excuses. See, the height of your cheapness, on an average, you come in advanced stages and hardly leave any room to escape. You Shameless Creature!
When things were in order, after such a harsh discord, why you again came without even explaining? How can you forget that last time he did everything to throw you out of his life once forever? That time, there was no deal that you can show your painful face again. Why did you come back? What made you to again choose him only? Why, tell me why? See at times Silence speaks volumes. But, you can’t always hide yourself behind this much torn reason.
Cancer, if you had some genuine reason than nobody would mind your untimely and ruining entry. But, unnecessarily you create havoc. Where from you get so much power to give unbearable pain to the people who are then hardly left to get cured.
Words fell so short to show how much I hate you. I can never forgive you, not at any cost. You take life in stages, as you, ‘Devil’ took pleasure in watching how Izhar Bhai, was left so helpless and frail. I know how much he tried to persuade you that he is much-needed. Even he was ready to negotiate. But, you wild and illiterate mischievous spirit were so adamant to see him suffering. How can I forget you even left him voiceless!
Bhai thought that life can throw some real curve balls at times but he never lost hope. He was not dispirited at all. However, we were planning to write a success story that how one can survive you, “Demon”!, to inspire other victims. But, when we were busy in pre-planning things, you took full-privilege of our engrossments and the illusion that he (bhai) is now all well! We thought you are gone. For-ever. The most unfortunate part was that of your cruelty and trick triumphed over my brother’s innocence. You back-stabber had no guts to face you, Bhai. I know he was too bad at handling Back-stabbers. That is why you over-powered him. You cheat! How mercilessly you made him pale and numb. What Vengeance you had!
Congrats “CANCER” for teaching me a lesson. I know the present time is the worst time and nearer to end. Quran has rightly said that when the time will come near to judgement, Evil power will dominate over Noble Spirits! And in this case it proved out rightly!
I don’t know whether you had some occult powers or sought help for some illegitimate woes to harm him. But, all I can tell you is that even the doctor who had guaranteed his recovery was himself puzzled of the recurrence of his disease. Everything happened so spontaneous!
Cancer, do you know our holy beloved Prophet (SAW) also suffered due to the ill-effects of Sorcery and Allah sent a message through Angel Jibrael (Asl) that an occult has been practised on him. Awful Na! He failed both in defeating you medically as well as through other alternative ways.
We all expected a Miracle though. But, it was too late as you had already succeed in causing his normal cells to become cancerous! Yet, the doubts still peeve me that who invited you? But, expecting an answer from you is to find a needle in a Haystack!!! Leave it…
“Although you appear in earthly form, your essence is pure consciousness. You are the fearless guardian of divine light.”
Your Sister
