What a nostalgic day...It has been 5 years since Ahmed Hussain has passed.  He was my first shaykh, my divine friend and mentor.  He taught me so much about life, spirituality, humanity, religion, etc, I could go on forever.  I pray that his beloved mother and brother are granted sabr until they are all reunited, though Ahmed lives in everyone's hearts. 

Below is a description of Ahmed from one of his old profiles from somewhere, it's been so long I can't remember, it sums up why he was such a well-known person in the community, let alone those who knew him from other parts of the world.

"I'm someone who cares about the inward more than the outward but realizes that what is percieved is a reflection of that which is imperceptible. I'm relatively crazy and love crazy people. That having been said there is nothing or very very little in this world that is mundane. I always seek people who transcend their own limitations and attain to greatness yet know that sometimes dwelling in the situation that fate/destiny/karma has put one in is itself a means of transcendence. Transcendence = Trance + Dance

Who I'd like to meet: People who are intelligent and perceptive. People with hearts of gold and intellects of mercury. Im tired of people who have mediocre spirits. Everyone has an amazing potential and its time we realize what our destinies are.-Ahmed Hussain"

May you rest in peace and attain Jannatul Firdous, Ameen.
