E-mail from a non-Muslim Donor to Imam Siraj's Cancer Fund

Somebody had posted the following beautiful mail on his facebook account. So, I am just re-posting it to bear witness that Allah [swt] does send help from where we could never imagine. Allah [swt] says in Qur'an:
And whosoever fears Allah and keeps his duty to Him (has taqwaa), He will make a way for him, to get out (from every difficulty). And He will provide him (sources) he could never imagine. [Q. 65:2-3]
Allah-hu-Akbar! What a beautiful verse of Qur'an it is.

[name and private information taken out]
"I saw your need of financial assistance with the cancer treatment for Imam Siraj Wahhaj and have donated $1,000 to this cause.

I am not a Muslim in the traditional sense, though I am of those who have fully surrendered to God through the Prophet Isa Al Masih. I follow Isa in all areas of my life and would follow him to my death. It was the Prophet Isa who told us to love our God with all our heart, soul and mind, and to love our neighbor as we would love ourselves. While we are different people with different lives, I believe that God is always reaching out to us and that both you and I are doing our best to reach out to Him. Could God have made us one community? Of course. But why didn’t He? It is in this exceedingly beautiful verse of the Qur’an:
“Had Allah willed He could have made you one community. But that He may try you by that which He hath given you (He hath made you as ye are).” – 5:48
We can either focus on our differences, or we can celebrate the God whom we both worship and rejoice that He has love for us that surpasses knowledge."

May Allah [swt] bestow upon him the light of hidayah. Ameen
