Dear Crescent Family and Friends,
Inna lillahi wa inna illayhi rajiiun. It is from Allah that we come and to Allah that we return. Of this there is no doubt.
Our dear beloved director and friend Br. Dawud Tauhidi's jannaza will be tomorrow, Monday, after Dhur prayer at 2:00 pm in our Canton masjid. The burial procession will continue at Knollwood Cemetery in Plymouth.
Death is a natural part of the Tarbiyah experience; an experience intended to be shared with family. It is with this spirit that Crescent administration and board have decided to close school on Monday for students as we all gather with our family and friends in prayer and respect for Br. Dawud and his family. In this way we can all attend and participate in his jannaza tomorrow.
Crescent Academy International encourages families to attend the jannaza as this is a tawhidic experience intended for healing the hearts after such a loss. There will be a gathering tomorrow, Monday, at 5:00pm in the school gymnasium open to all who knew and loved Br. Dawud to find comfort and care in the recitation of Qur’an and the company of good friends.
