Abdul your teachings were well needed. I appreciated the time you spent with me. I am no longer in a sunken place because of you.

I'm so sorry for your loss and pain Marshay and Family. I will continue to pray for you and your Families. Dennis Abdul was a great man, a man of Allah. He talked the talk and walked the walk of Allah. Why, Why, Why was Dennis not buried on the 3rd day as his religion teaches and practice. To my Muslim Brothers and Sisters, I'm so sorry that this happened to you all. May Allah comfort you all and get you thru this horrible storm. Why, Why, Why was Dennis not buried next to his Mother and Brother in Cleveland Ohio which was one of his few requests and his Family request which was well known. Marshay ,her children, the Muslims of Cleveland and Dennis's very close friends were heavily involved in his care from the moment he got sick and it is so so so wrong that he was taken away from them so maliciously. He vowed that he would never visit Sandusky again and everyone that knew him know this. Cleveland is his home. Anyone who truly knew him know that he disliked this small town. Everything and everyone he deeply love resides in Cleveland. So many that deeply love him, resides in Cleveland. Private burial with no date and no Cleveland loved ones invited/allowed, Why, Why, Why, ALLAH, please help change evil hearts to good, I beg you
