I never knew him personally, but have seen him on numerous occasions. When we visited his Mosque for the African Amierican Parade, he hosted us at his Mosque. I'll never forget that he made us feel as though this Mosque was our home and their kindness and hospitality was above and abroad, we were treated like Kings.
I will never forget the time I was there and truly apppreciate his kindness respect, and genrerousity . May Allah grant him the best in the world to come.
