Salam. [إنا لله وإنا إليه راجعون] “To Allah we belong, and to Him we shall return.”
We regret to inform you that our beloved brother and longtime community member *Thomas Ali Muhammad* has passed away early this morning. May Allah shower him with mercy and forgiveness, and admit him into the highest station in Paradise. Amen.
We will hold his funeral prayer [صلاة الجنازة] at Duncanville Islamic Center Tuesday, August 16 after Dhuhr prayer, which will be at 1:45 pm, in sha Allah.
Burial [الدفن] will take place after prayers at the Islamic Gardens in Laureland Cemetery, in sha Allah.
The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: [من صلى على جنازة فله قيراط ، ومن انتظرها حتى توضع في اللحد فله قيراطان ، والقيراطان مثل الجبلين العظيمين] “The one who prays the funeral prayer, he earns a qeeraat of reward; and he who stays until the burial is completed, he earns two qeeraat of reward. And the amount of qeeraat is like two great mountains.” (an-Nisaa’i)
