RIP: Rasul Madyun

Rasul Madyun, assistant Imam at Masjid Muhammad and a great young community activist passed away on Monday, November 20, 2006. He was 30. His funeral will be at Masjid Muhammad in Washington, DC on Wednesday, Insha Allah.

Needless to say, his death comes as a shock.

Rasul was a good man and a fine example of a Muslim inolved in the betterment of American society and working with youth. I will Insha Allah be writing about him and sharing some of my reflections since that time at my blog in a couple of days

May Allah have mercy upon him

UPDATE: Rasul Hasan Madyun: 1976-2006

Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji'un.

SubhanAllah! We really never know. I have not seen that brother in a few years. In fact the last time I saw him was just about three years ago. The last smile I saw on his face is now etched in my mind.

May Allah have mercy on him.

When I heard the news about Rasul, I almost couldnt beleive it. This just goes to show us that the only thing that is certain in life is death. This relly hit home for me because Rasul was like a brother to me as well as alot of the youth in Memphis, TN @ Masjid Al' Muminun. I am still having a hard time dealing with his passing but praying everyday is slowly helping me understand that Allah is the Almighty and knows best. Eventhough I don't understand why a person that was making such a positive impact in the Muslim community was taken at this young age, I keep repeating to myself that surely we come from G'd and it is He who we return to.
My prayers are extended to his wife and family at this time.
May Allah forgive him his sins and welcome to the Jenna.

Ameen sister Khadijah. It is my hope that the amount of people at his janazah is a sign of Allah's love for him
