Home / Encouragement / A Story of Near-Impossible Survival

One of the most amazing medical recovery stories leaves one father a great deal of inspiration and hope.

(SACRAMENTO, CA) – Bilal Markis had the scare of his life when his son, Rasheed, nearly died. “In the early part of the summer of 2009, my sixteen-year-old son Elijah was involved with gangs and, because I was a single father of three at the time, I had to work more and more to keep the bread on the table.”

But eventually Bilal did discover his son’s gang activity. “I decided to try to put a stop to it. Not knowing how deeply he was involved or basically not knowing anything about gangs, period, I tried things my own way, but my way ended up driving him to run away.”

He says he knew at that moment that he had to do something. “The first thing I did was to file a missing person’s report at the police station. Having done that, I was myself out on foot searching for him too, but sadly without any result.”

A week later. Rasheed’s dad decided to post large pictures of his son around the city with the inscription “Missing.” Two days later, his family felt thankful to God because Rasheed came home.

“Soon after he returned, I called my landlord and told her that I had to break the lease because of what had happened. She understood and less than a month later on August 2, 2009, we moved five miles away into our new apartment. The very next day after breakfast, my sons Elijah and Rasheed asked if they could ride their bicycles around the new neighborhood. I said okay but I wanted them to help me to unpack the boxes when they got back.”

After two hours, when they had not returned to the apartment, Bilal Markis started to get nervous and went out to search for them by bus as he did not have a car.

“Once I found them at the area we just moved from, but they disappeared again and that became the night that changed my son Rasheed’s life forever.”

Close to midnight this father received the terrible news that Rasheed had been run over by two SUVs while he was riding his bicycle. “I was told by the doctors at the hospital that his chances to survive were minimal and, if he did survive, he would not be the same boy I remembered. All my hope was with Allah now. I could hardly believe what the doctors were telling me. My son had lost one kidney, half of his liver, had broken his pelvis, crushed one lung and lost forty-six pints of blood in surgery!”

At the hospital, Bilal immediately sent out emails briefly explaining what happened and asking everyone to make dua (prayer) for the recovery of his son. Thoughts ran through his head…Could he survive?

Should I be prepared to let him go? Would Allah hear our prayers and answer them? Allah did hear them!

Allah did answer them and on August 25, 2009, his son Rasheed came home. Moreover, about two weeks later, on September 9, 2009, he went to school!. Today Rasheed is like any other healthy kid his age, Alhamdulillah! (Praise be to God!)

Author Agron Belica, who is Salem-News.com’s Boston Bureau Chief, commented on the incredible turn of events that he also attributes to divine intervention, “Brother Bilal Markis is absolutely right, prayer is very, very powerful.”

Bilal Markis concluded by saying, “My son carries one big reminder on his chest that reaches to below his navel: a scar to remind him never to forget Who had given him a Second Chance! Amin!!!”

    According to the Nationwide Institute of Well being, erectile dysfunction is outlined as the shortcoming to
    acquire or maintain an erection that’s enough for passable sexual efficiency.

    A number of research have offered hyperlinks between erectile dysfunction and the connection between human progress hormone (HGH) and insulin-like progress issue I (IGF-1).
    Development hormone stimulates the manufacturing of
    IGF-1 whereas IGF-1 is taken into account to be the principle
    middleman of development hormone motion. IGF-1 can also be suspected to mediate endothelial nitric oxide manufacturing.
    Nitric oxide is taken into account to be a principal mediator of penile
    erection by rising cGMP formation, which in flip causes relaxation of vascular
    clean muscle. This permits engorgement of the penis with blood,
    thus the event of an erection. Progress hormone can also be answerable for the manufacturing of cGMP formation in cavernous tissue.

    There’s a relationship between all of those hormones that
    has been proven to impression penile erection, particularly with HGH ranges.
    In current research, it has been proven that in wholesome male patients, HGH ranges in systemic and cavernous blood enhance through the swelling of the penis.

    In patients with erectile dysfunction there have been decreased ranges, roughly sevenfold, of progress hormone within the plasmid ranges throughout
    flaccidity in comparison with the management group
    of wholesome male patients throughout flaccidity. It has been proposed
    that the biological results of development hormone in erectile dysfunction could also be decided by IGF-1-stimulated nitric oxide
    formation. It’s also famous that when there are
    physiological concentrations of progress hormone current, there’s an elevation of intracellular cGMP, thus suggesting that development hormone
    ranges could also be of main significance with
    regard to the upkeep of male erectile functionality.
    Whereas all of those components are decreased within the plasma
    of erectile dysfunction patients, HGH represents an necessary participant relating to the entire aforementioned molecular components and the relationships between them in regard to
    penile erections.

    The decreased ranges of progress hormone could result
    in fatigue, lack of sexual need, lack of erection, and decreased to zero
    sperm counts within the semen. Due to this fact, acceptable
    replenishment of HGH within the our bodies techniques could have the power to extend the entire molecular
    components essential to regain the power to have an erection, enhance sexual
    drive, and replenish sperm counts. That being mentioned, it’s also understood
    that a lot of a rise of HGH can have a unfavorable impact on sexual features and
    fertility; due to this fact, therapy with HGH must be monitored for
    optimum outcomes. It ought to even be famous that pure replenishment of development hormone is feasible by lowering attainable chronic stress, which in flip decreases the
    quantity of cortisol produced by the adrenal gland and in the end
    reregulating the remainder of the our bodies hormones. When the physique is overly confused it compensates by
    shutting down the manufacturing of pointless hormones,
    comparable to testosterone and estrogen. This in flip impacts the programs that depend on these hormones,
    such because the reproductive system. All in all,
    the administration of HGH within the physique is almost certainly needed for correct sexual capabilities, amongst different functionalities.
