Surrounded By Troubles

My elder brother is in the hospital. He had a hemorrhaging iliac aneurysm, went to the hospital and they operate right away. There are complications from blood in the intestines, which should clear soon, and now a very low potassium level...

I think of sickness and suffering, and I think of the world today, and how everything needed to create a paradise is within our understanding and grasp...

Then I recite:

"By Allah I wish I had only a thousand horsemen of Banu Firas ibn Ghanm (as the poet says):
If you call them the horsemen would come to you like the summer cloud ! "
