- A Bangladeshi man has made a heartfelt appeal to God
- His wife of 30 years has had cancer for two years
- Although he never used to pray before, he now prays everyday
A man in Bangladesh has made a heartfelt appeal to God to save his wife of 30 years who has had cancer for two years.
Tofajjal Mia, 60, has shared his appeal on renowned Bangladeshi photojournalist GMB Akash's Facebook page.
He began by saying that he never used to pray and that he always made excuses to miss his daily prayers.
However, since his wife was diagnosed with cancer two years ago, Mia said he has never missed a day of prayer.
He shared how he and his beloved wife are close and how she makes him lemon juice to cool him down every day after work.
As a poor farmer, he does not have money to take his wife to a good hospital to get proper treatment for her illness.
His only resort is prayer. He said: "The last two years I only pray and cry to Allah for her good health because I can’t survive a day without seeing her! I pray that Allah will forgive me for my sins and give my wife back to my life!"
Mia's plea has touched the hearts of many commenters. See some of their reactions below.
