Before we close with prayer, we are deeply, deeply saddened by the unexpected loss of one of the great helpers of the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan, one of the great followers of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, under the leadership of the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan: Student Minister Ava Muhammad. 

Whenever we lose a life, and those special lives that have touched our life, we are filled with grief and the burden of that grief causes us to ask questions: Why God? Why her? Why him?  You’re a good God, aren’t you? You’re a just God, aren’t you? Of course, He is.  

Every life is sacred and precious in the sight of God. Whenever we lose a loved one, we are reminded of how fragile and how short our time is. So, every moment of the time that we are given in the circle of the living, should be cherished, and not taken for granted. Our treatment of one another is very important because when death comes, ofttimes the sorrow that turns to grief is the regret that we carry because we did not treat that person, momma, daddy, brother, sister, friend, the way they should have been treated. 

As Muslims, we are instructed not to let the sun set without settling our differences and making peace.  And if we can’t settle our differences in that day, at least we’re in the process, should it please Allah, to take that life. Death reminds us that life is not guaranteed, and we take it for granted. We see each other in this moment but who among us can say that we will be alive in the next moment? Who among us can say, I will be here tomorrow?
