In Memorium

I have said more than once on my blog that living in Minneapolis, Minnesota is good for Muslims for many different reasons.

This brother, Hesham Hussein, was one of those reasons. Many schools here owe their existence to him and a handful of other hard-working brothers and sisters who spend their lives trying to make our community thrive.

And its blossoming at an unbelievable rate.

But last Sunday in Saudi Arabia we lost our central force, the sheltering tree one might say; our bridge between the Muslims and the non-Muslims.

Inna lillahi wa inna ilahi rajioon.

Our garden will never be the same.

This has really upset me. I was shocked when I read it on Sunday. It only serves as a reminder that this life is so fragile...can end at any time...just temporary.

I remember when their youngest boy was just a baby. It has been a few years since I saw her, but subhnallah what a strong women his wife is.

I pray that Allah eases their burden in this time.

I wonder if their is anything that the family needs immediately and what we, as a community, can do to help them. People reached out to me when I needed them and it would only make sense to pass on something...
