  3. One year later on April 02 2008 Sr. Malika reports:

    “AssalaumuAlaikum,

    Just wanted to let you know, the Mural still stands, untouched – was just out there to see the family and the Mural remains respected. ALSO – Mantia Magassa (the mother who lost 5) gave birth to a baby boy and her co-wife, Ayehsa Magassa (the mother in the wheelchair) gave birth to twins (boy & girl) the very next day. Unfortunately, the girl baby died a week later…..

    PEACE, Malika “

  4. subhanallah, we should come together like this more often, not just at tragedy’s or events. very touching tragedy i pray for all those involved.

  5. salamz great vid to post here.muhammad ali was at muslim fest last week in canada (mississagua) they also showed this video there,the theatre was in tears.excellent event though mashallah and being from the UK it was even more excellent! wow.

  6. I’ve never been big on murals and tributes, but this was beautiful.

    May Allah have mercy on both families, and may this serve as a reminder where our final destination is.
