“He is fighting for his life, and we implore anyone reading this post to ask Allah the Lord of The Worlds to grant him a full and speedy recovery, and to grant his family plentiful patience to get through this very difficult time.

“We remind you all to be very vigilant and to take care when leaving the masjid.”
