Our dearly beloved Uncle Qasem Mahmud, passed away yesterday. May Allah enter him into His mercy and grant him the highest levels of Jannah for all he has done for our community!
Uncle Qasem was not only one of the owners of the Long Bay Camp grounds, where we have had the MYO camp for over 30 year. He was a great patron of kids and youth becoming more in touch with the creator and with creation. He encouraged youth to reconnect to God through reconnecting with nature and art.
We cherished his lovely stories when he visited each year, for the many years of the MYO camp. He would share his knowledge and his experiences, but above all he would share his love of seeing young Muslim children experiencing the beauty of God's creation.
May Allah bless him, have mercy on him, and offer his family and loved ones recompense and patience.
Kindly post your condolences below and we will be dedicating a charitable donation in his memory to help needy children.
The funeral janazah prayer will take place on Wednesday June 28th at 1:30pm at the Ottawa Main Mosque at 251 Northwestern Ave. followed by the burial at the Pinecrest Cemetary.
Condolences will be held at the SNMC Mosque 3020 Woodroffe Ave on Wednesday June 28th to Thursday June 29th from 6:00pm to 9:00pm.
