“Surely, To Allah we belong and to Him we shall return.” Quran, 2:156

My father passed peacefully from this world Saturday, July 26, 2014 (Ramadan 28, 1435).

Although my Papa may have left this world physically, his personality and character will live on forever through those whose lives he touched.

The past two weeks have brought forward countless stories about the ways in which he has touched both friends’ and strangers’ lives. I pray that I am able to carry on his legacy. If I am ever even half the person he was, I will be content.
