Br. Emmanuel Dead For 69 Days!!

AsSalaamu 'Alaykum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh
(May the Peace, Mercy and Blessings of Almighty God be upon you)

It saddens us to inform the communities that our Brother Emmanuel Thorne passed away on Thursday January 24, 2019.

It has been 69 days since his death!!

His body was taken by the City's Medical Examiner's office and they've tried reaching out to his family. The only person they were able to reach was his stepson, and his stepson told them that Emmanuel was a practicing Muslim and that he didn't have any funds for funeral/burial arrangements and that he opted for a city burial (no washing, no shrouding, no prayers, no Muslim burial).

The Office of Chief Medical Examiners reached out to The Janazah Project knowing that we take on all of these cases and cases similar to it- and asked us if we'd like to assist with brother Emmanuel and we told them that it is our obligation and our honor and that we wish that we were informed earlier.

Please step forth in helping fulfill this Fard Kifayyah (Communal Obligation).

Allah سبحانه وتعالى will surely come to your help and the help of your loved ones when you do the same for his slaves.

The funds will go towards his Janazah, Burial and necessary burial documents.

Any excess funds will go towards the Project for future needy cases like this.

May Allah سبحانه و تعالى help you more than how you help your brothers and sisters, ameen.
