Muslim Family Springfield Fire Tragedy
It is with great sadness that we inform our community of a tragedy that occurred this Sunday morning to our fellow Muslim brothers and sisters. A humble and devoted father died along with his 2 young kids in a house fire after saving his wife and daughter.
إِنَّا لِلّهِ وَإِنَّـا إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعون
Another brother is in serious condition with spinal injuries after jumping out of a window with his baby in his arms. The baby and his wife are alive but our brother is hurting and undergoing surgery. There are several other individuals and families also impacted by this tragedy.
Our Imam Wissam, Brother Abdul Qadir (VP of ISWM) and Brother Mohammed Dastigir (President of ISWM) were present on Sunday with the Mayor of Springfield and Town Officials assisting the families and working with local agencies. We will continue to provide support to the families and will announce when the Janazah Prayers will be shortly.
We will be collecting donations after Jumah prayers this Friday for the impacted families. At this time we are not asking for clothes or furniture but may do so in the near future as we assess what the families need. Monetary support is critical at this time for the families. Please do not bring any supplies to the masjid.
Please contact Brother Abdul Qadir with any questions.
