SIO Mumbra grief over the Death of Br. Musab Asre

We are shocked to receive the news of the demises of our beloved Brother Musab Asre son of Sultan Asre. He was Pleasing personality, dedicatedly working for SIO from early period of his life. We have beautiful memories with him, he will surely be remembered.

May Allah Subhanahu Wa taala accept his services, pardon him for lapses and grant him the highest place in Jannat-Ul-Firdaus.
We share your undoubted grievances and sad loss and pray that Allah grant him the ultimate pleasure, i.e. Jannah.

We extend our condolence to the kith and kin. May his soul rest in eternal peace and may almighty give you the strength to bear this irreplaceable loss. Aameen.

Indeed his cancer was short-lived while what he gets in the hereafter is forever.

“Every soul shall have a taste of death and only on the Day of the Judgement shall you be paid your full recompense. Only those who are saved from the fire and admitted to Paradise (Jannah) will have attained the object (of life). For the life of this world is but good and chattels of deception.” (Qur’an Surah Imran; 3:185)
