Dear friends,

It is with great sorrow that I report this sad news to you. My Mu'min brother and associate, Quasim Hamdani of Chicago, who founded the, and who was to inherit from me, passed on to Eternal life yesterday after suffering a completely unexpected massive heart attack. He was 55. Br Hamdani has left behind his wonderful wife, our Mu'min Sister Laurie, and two lovely daughters.

May Allah grant him the best abode in the next life and tranquility to the bereaved family!

Respected Sister, Salamun alaikum!

At this moment of profound grief that will be a lifelong loss for you and your lovely daughters; Farida, I, Ashi, Mama and other family members are, and will remain, with you in our thoughts.

Psychology tells us that the grief period is at its peak during the first three months. Thereafter, it gradually starts fading.

We are facing a paradoxical scale here: My respected Sister's strong will on one hand and the most traumatic event on the other.

You must resolutely live for your lovely daughters who are still kids in my sight. This recalls me of a poem I learned in high school:


If we could do anything to be supportive, please do not hesitate to call us.

Always your family,

Farida, Shabbir, Mama and children

I have known the Hamdanis living the Qur'an, so, Respected Sister! Grieve not. You will be together again, eternally.

52:17 Those who chose to live upright, dwell in Gardens and in bliss.

52:18 Delighted in what their Sustainer has bestowed upon them. And their Sustainer has guarded them against the torment of the Blazing Fire.

52:19 Enjoy life, eat and drink happily for what you used to do.

52:20 Relaxing on well-decorated couches - And We will match them with neat companions, most beautiful of vision.

52:21 And those who attained belief, and whose children followed them in belief, We shall unite them with their children. We shall not let any of their deeds go to waste. Every human will be held responsible for his own doings. [Being the progeny of righteous ancestors alone will be of no avail. 74:38. Raheen = Held as pledge = Collateral]

52:22 And We shall bestow on them the fruits and the delicacies of their choice. [Lahmim-maa-yashtahoon = Literally, meat such as they desire = Delicacies of their choice]

52:23 And therein they pass from hand to hand cups of delicious drinks that cause no idle talk nor a hangover. [Ithm = Any action that hurts human potential or dignity, hangover, harming the ‘self’, dragging down]

52:24 And their children like pearls, playful, happy around them. [13:23, 52:21, 59:17]

52:25 They will socialize and reminisce among themselves (recalling how the previous life was).

52:26 They will say, "We were kind and humble amidst our families.”

52:27 So God has graced us and guarded us against the suffering of scorching winds of requital.

52:28 Truly, We always used to call upon Him (for help and guidance). He is the Source of progress in societies, Merciful." [Birr = Making room for others to make progress]

16: 30 And for those who walk aright, it is said "What has your Lord sent down?" They say, "All that is good" (The Quran impels people to do good to others). For those who do good to others in this world, is a goodly return here, and the home of the hereafter will be better. Pleasant indeed will be the home of those who walk upright.

16:31 The Garden of Eden they will enter, underneath which river flow wherein they will have whatever they wish. This is how Allah rewards the upright.

16:32 (The upright are contented even as they depart from the world.) Angels cause them to die saying, "Peace unto you! Enter the Garden now for what you used to do."

May Allah have His mercy and blessing on Brother Quasim. My sincere and deepest condolence to sister Laurie and the whole family.

Dear sister Laurie,

I am sorry to hear of your (and our) loss.

When I interacted with Bro Qasim he was nice, and more importantly a truth seeker. God willing, he has found what he was seeking.

May God grant him peace.

If there is something I/we can do, please let me/us know.

Dear sister,

Sometimes words are not enough to express feelings. Brother Quasim had set out on the noble path of showing the Quran's light to the world. May Allah accept his sincerity and devotion and reward him in the aakhirah. His efforts have impacted scores of unknown people thousands of miles away. Please accept my condolences. I wish to extend my support to Salaat Forum in any way that is feasible. Please do not hesitate if you need this brother in faith anytime.

We loved him so very much. You and him are among the most positive influences I've ever had in my life. He will be missed, but he will be remembered as a truly upright, great man.

So sorry for your loss, Laurie. Love you so much.

May God grant you ease and increase you in love.

I have no words to say, Sister Laurie.

I visited this forum after a very long time and am shocked to hear the news! Alas, this is a fact of life... eventually, we must all depart for a greater abode.

May God grant you and your family peace of mind.
