It was just yesterday

That life my brother was tryna turn away
Gave up the kush sour and haze..
Streets were amazed!
Always In da mosque… Giving sadaka he had no limits to his cost
Fasibililah he said… Quran he recited, Quran he read..
Haven’t seen him that happy ever… words he spoke more clever
Was rockin his qamis through any weather..
givin dawah  tryna help people change for the better!
Making plans for marriage n hijra.. Told me he gone name his first daughter hijra
Jannah was his motivation… Pleasing all was his quotation..
I’d say “Mashallah akhi you came a long way.. alhamdulilah he’d say”
But somewhere along the way… something happen,
Reciting Quran turned to rapping… The bright glow coming off him started to fade away
His iman was getting lower day by day..
Stopped seeing him around…  it was like we didn’t even live in the same town
Called his phone like every day… Told me inshallah I’ll come hang with you one of these days
Months passed he didn’t holla… walking to the mosque I seen him with his father
His pops took me to the side told me he was giving him nothing but pain…
Back to staying out late driving his moms insane.
I went to speak to him told him he’s on the fast lane
You’d rather be a prisoner in this dunya don’t break the chain
I love you allah loves you, and you gone always be my mane..
May allah guide you and I.. ameen.. I met you through this deen we gon always be a team
Later on that night he came home late again..
Him and his mom got into it.. he lashed out
Walking out the house he bumped his head and passed out
Gave him call the next day but I didn’t get a answer…
Got a call from his parents, doctor told them my hommie was living with brain cancer
Couldn’t believe them…
Til I seen  him
Later on that day he passed away..
I could’ve sworn we were ankle to ankle, shoulder to shoulder.. praying!
Just yesterday!
