إنَّا لِلّهِ وَإِنَّـا إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعونَ
Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi rajioon
“..Indeed we are from Allah and
indeed to Him we will return.”
(Surah Al-Baqara 2:156)
It is with sadness that we inform you of the demise of Marhoom Brother Sarmad Hussein Yousif, who passed away on his way to attend majlis of Imam Hussain (as) at Imam Ali Masjid on Saturday, August 6th, 2022, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Marhoom is fondly remembered as the one whose smile and presence lit up the faces of many and any room he walked in. He will surely be missed by the community at large. Marhoom Sarmad was the husband of Sr. Haneen Yousif and father of Hussein Hussein, Mustafa Hussein, Ilyas Hussein, and Zain Hussein.
Surah Al-Fatiha is requested for Marhoom Sarmad Hussein Yousif.
Funeral Service Details: The Fatiha Majlis for our beloved brother Sarmad Hussein Yousif will be held at 7pm on Friday, August 19th, 2022, at Imam Ali Masjid.
Najaf Burial Details: An update will be shared once burial details are confirmed.
Mu’mineen are requested to give sadaqah on behalf of the deceased and remember them with Salat Al-Wahshat after the burial & with Duas of Maghfirah.
Imam Ali Masjid would like to extend its condolences to the bereaved family and relatives.
May the Almighty SWT grant the departed soul maghfirah and a place among His chosen ones and grant the family patience to bear this loss – Ameen.
It is highly recommended to give Sadaqah for Marhooms upon their death.
In the first Raka’at, after reciting Surah al-Hamd, Ayatul Kursi should be recited once and in the second Raka’at, Surah al-Qadr should be recited 10 times after Surah-al-Hamd.
