Passing of Imam Rasul Madyun (rh)

Surely, we come from G'd and surely to him do we return.

Yesterday, the American Muslim community lost a valuable asset. Imam Rasul Madyun of Washington DC passed due to complications of a stroke.

Imam Madyun, who was in his early 30s, was bridge between the younger and older generations of Muslims in America. He was the assistant Imam of Masjid Al-Mu'minun in Memphis, TN before moving to Washington DC and coming assistant Imam of Masjid Muhammad and teacher at Sister Clara Muhammad school. He was a very active member of the National Young Adult Association, a youth group affliated with the leadership of Imam WD Mohammad, including holding the position of Chairperson of Religious Studies for the organization. He also interned and was a student at the ISNA headquaters in Plainfield, IN.

He leaves behind a wife, parents and many dear friends.

May G'd have mercy upon his soul, forgive him of his sins, shine HIS light upon his grave and grant him eternal bliss. AMEEN!
