Muslim Organizes Ironman Night Run for Nephew Battling Cancer

Inspired by his nephew to help others fighting cancer, Abbas Ibrahim, a Muslim man from Bolton, will be running the Ironman 5K Night Run on Friday.

Ibrahim was inspired to run the charity event as his nephew, Muhammad Eesa Ibrahim, is currently undergoing chemotherapy after a successful removal of his brain tumor.

The 7-year-old was diagnosed in January 2023, The Bolton News reported.

“I am the youngest uncle, so I spend a lot of time with him. He’s my little lion.”

Young Eesa, who cannot attend school due to fear of infection, will attend the end of the run for his uncle.

Thank You

The uncle sees the run as a chance to thank NHS staff at The Christie and Manchester Children’s Hospital for their treatment of Eesa.

“Eesa loves Marvel superheroes especially Ironman so he’ll like that I’m doing something called the Ironman,” Abbas said.

“The medal I get for finishing it will be going to him.

“I want to thank to all the hospitals that have supported him and have done so much for him, so I decided to raise this money for them.”

“It’s been really difficult for his mum and dad. It’s been a bumpy road and heart-breaking for them to see their son go through so much.”

There are many texts in the Qur’an and Sunnah which point to the virtue and great reward of those who are patient and state that Allah will give them reward without measure.

Allah say in the Qur’an, Surah al-Baqarah verse 155, “And certainly, We shall test you with something of fear, hunger, loss of wealth, lives and fruits, but give glad tidings to As- Saabiroon (the patient)”
