Born with an Azaan (Call of Prayer), Died with Namaaz (Prayer). Muhammad Azim Malik, my Uncle, born April 15th, 1945, died April 22nd, 2010 at the age of 65. May Allah (God) grant him a place in Jannat-ul-Firdos (Heaven) and recognize his good deeds, Ameen. He was a calm and righteous man and it's sad to see him pass so sudden. He was undergoing prostate surgery when, as the doctors claim, his blood pressure became extremely low and he passed away. I will always remember his warm hugs and his sweet laugh. When we placed him in the grave, Subhan'Allah his face was already facing towards the House of Allah. Azim Uncle, you will be remembered as an example for us to live our lives with great patience and humility for Allah. Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji'oon (Surely we belong to Allah and to Him shall we return).
