To my dear online family,

Thank you so much for the outpouring of comforting words and support for myself and our family during this difficult time. I have been awed by the extent to which Quasim touched people's lives, both locally all around the world, and the extent to which others, often times unknown to me, have reflected his spirit and Allah's guidance back to me. I do take comfort in this.

Perhaps at another moment, I will share the trials of planning a funeral to honor my husband's life in a local community that seemingly only knows how to do it in one way (the traditional "but this is just how it's done" way), which was not what best or most appropriately suited the spirit of the man or the needs his family. For now, though, if anyone is interested know details or read the words of the service, feel free to contact me via my email here.

It is my sincere hope that discussion and learning will continue here. I doubt I can fill such large shoes and therefore hope that others will continue the journey.

Heartfelt gratitude and peace.

Salaam and thank you.
