[IN THE NAME OF ALLAH, THE MOST GRACIOUS, THE MOST MERCIFUL]
السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته
إِنَّا لِلّهِ وَإِنَّـا إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعُونَ
[SURELY WE BELONG TO ALLAH AND TO HIM WE SHALL RETURN]
We are informing the community Br Ahsan Bashir passed away today morning in New Jersey due to Covid19. May Allah swt accept his death as Shaheed due to pandemic. He is survived by wife and two children in Pakistan. He is the cousin of Sr Asima Ahmed.
On this solemn occasion we offer our deepest sympathies and sincere condolences to the family and friends. May Allah Almighty grant the entire family Mercy (Rahmah), Patience (Sabr) and comfort during this difficult and trying time. We also pray for the soul and ask Allah Almighty to expand and enlighten the grave with His Noor and grant Jannathul Firdous- Ameen
We remind ourselves, the surviving family members and friends of the Sunnah of the Prophet (AS) and reflect upon the words of condolence and prayer that he (AS) used on such occasions:
"Inna'lillahi-Wa'Inna Ilahi-rajioon -Inna-lillahi-ma-akhatha Walaho-ma-a-ta. Wakkollo-Shay'in indaho Bi ajalim-musamma - faltasbir Waltahtasib"
- To Allah we belong and to Him is our return. Due to Allah that which He has taken away and His is whatever He has given. With Him, everything has an appointed term; so let us have patience and seek reward from Him - Ameen!
