    Love and prayers with the family. Losing a loved one at such young age. He was my cousin. A very bright young lad with lots of potential and someone who loved and lived life to the fullest. Always made others smile. May he rest in peace and may Allah grant him peace and Jannah (Heaven). Love you bro.
