Asalamalaykum Dearest Community –
The Janazah for our courageous, delightful and beautiful Hadi Abdur Rasheed is CONFIRMED to be held after Dhuhr (1:30PM) at ADAMS Center (46903 Sugarland Road, Sterling, VA, 20164) today on October 22, 2018. It will be followed by the burial at Sterling Cemetery, after which the family will accept condolences in the ADAMS Community Hall tomorrow evening until Maghrib Prayers.
Hadi was an amazing child, whose smile was infectious and courage was boundless. Please continue to make dua for him and his family during these difficult times. Please see the note below..
On behalf of the family, jazakum Allah khayr for all of your dues and support over the last year. May Allah accept it from all of us.
Hadi Abdur Rasheed returned to Allah (SWT) on October 21, 2018 after a courageous battle with Aplastic Anemia. He is survived by his twin brother, Zakaria, his sister Leena, his parents Saira Sufi and Aamir Rasheed, his grandparents, Asra Rasheed, Qaiser and Ashraf Sufi as well as many loving aunts, uncles and cousins.
Hadi was able to light up any room with his smile. He loved Star Wars, Legos, sports, pancakes on the weekend, making bagged lunches for the homeless and spending time with his twin Zakaria and his Appi, Leena. Hadi spent over a year in hospitals and endured many pokes and procedures yet it was him that always reminded his mother to turn to Allah (SWT). His understanding of the oneness of Allah (SWT) at seven years old was remarkable and we will miss his lovely Quranic recitation.
We ask Allah the Almighty to bless Hadi’s soul and accept him into the highest place in Jannat ul-firdaus. May Allah give all of us steadfastness, strength and patience during this time.
