    Asrar bohot nek aur sharif ladka thha. Iska proof bhi hai, jummahraat ka raat paya, Eid ka din, aur jummah namaz bhi milega janaza mein. Phir bhi agar koi bhi bhool hua usse jaane anjane mein, Allah aur humare pyaare Habib (SAW) maaf karde aur Jannat-E-Firdous mein jaga mile, Insha-Allah Ameen.

    Bappy aur dono beti ko Allah sabar de aur Insha-Allah dono beti ko nek raasta mein chalne ka taufeeq de. Allah sabko sehat aur tandurasti ka saath hayyat de, Insha-Allah Ameen.

    it was a very shocking news to hear early this morning, which i still cant process in my mind. this was very random and was very hurtful to me to hear about this incident. everyone has to go one day or another. no doubt asrar bhai was a very nice person and i know for a fact that he will go to jannat-e-firdous insha-Allah ameen. may bappy baji, shazia, and shaireen have patience. we all lost such a great person and the only thing we can do for him now is to pray aur humlog se jo bhi ho, par ke bakshai.

    Inna lillah e wa inna allayhey raijeyoon……..It is indeed a very sad news that Asrar mamma passed away so suddenly. May Allah bless his souls and grant him jannatul-ferdous. Though death is inevitable, yet this kind of sudden and total bereavement is ever distressing. I am still very much saddened and deeply shocked to hear about the sudden demise of Asrar mamma. May Allah give strength to the family to bear the shock. Our prayers & thoughts are with his family at this difficult time.


  4. It was a sad and shocking news.May Allah grant his soul eternal peace,and and may his soul rest in heaven.I remember his trip to houston along with his wife,when we shared some wonderful times.Our deepest condolences to the family.

    This is a message to Kamran bhai(Erum’s husband) from Asrar bhai:

    Asrar bhai would always say, “tell Kamran that I always remember him”. He used to say “did you know Kamran was my classmate in Dhaka before he went to Pakistan. We spent such good times in Dhaka”.

    Although Asrar bhai was miles apart, he would always remember his old friends and relatives in Pakistan.

    Asrar bhai was a good man with a clean heart who is inshallah headed straight for heaven. I am sure of this because he observed Ramadan like a good muslim and passed away on the day of Eid !

  7. Khwaja Muhammad Hanif (Nanna) Says:

    When I first heard the news I could not believe what I was hearing and had to call my khala to confirm. The news shocked the entire Nawabari and everyone is finding it almost impossible to accept it. He was a good friend of mine when were in Chaman.
    May ALLAH bless him in Jannat and give enough strength to his family to bear the sudden shock (AMEEN).
    He will always be remembered in our hearts

    -Khwaja Muhammad Hanif (Nanna)

  8. Arshad Says:

    Asrar bhai’s Namaz e Janaza will be held at Jamaica Masjid at 168st and Hillside.

    May Allah grant his soul eternal peace,and and may his soul rest in heaven.

    Without him there will be permanant void at Nawabbari’s future gatherings. I can still picture him hanging out with rest of the Nawabbarians out side of a restuarant or someone’s house during celebrations and giving full hearted laughs at someone’s sarcastic comments (typical of Nawabbarians).

    We will miss him dearly.

  9. Ovais Hassan Says:

    It is a very shocking news to hear that Asrar uncle passed away at this early age. I still can’t figure out where this began. The only thing we can do is make du’a aur jo pare usko bakshai. Inshallah, Bappy aunty, Shaireen, aur Shazia ko Allah sabar de. Inshallah, Asrar uncle ko Allah Jannat naseeb farmaye. These are real things that we have to face in our life no matter what and if people don’t understand them, they still don’t know what to do that means they don’t understand the signs of qayamat. He was a very good person. There is a proof that he will go to jannat because he passed away in jummah raat, got Ramadan, and got Eid. I don’t know if people noticed, but during the janaza it looked like Asrar uncle was smiling and was in a good condition. Everyone should be crying because we lost a such a good person. May Allah forgive us all INSHALLAH AMEEN!!!!

    when i saw sami chachu last night during the prayer, i couldnt bare look him in the eyes. his eyes were so deep inside with black spots all around it, he looked as if he were to be sick for a long period of time. his face turned all pale, and the more i looked at him tears rolled down my cheeks. he lost not only a brother, but a true best friend. sami chachu and asrar bhai were very close to each other and lived in the same house, just floors apart. i wish him all the prayers from me… for i know how it feels exactly how to lose a loved one (rana phuppu). Allah takes, but also gives in return. insha-Allah he has something great ready for sami chachu, bappy baji and their family in the near future, insha-Allah ameen.

  11. Khwaja Sayeed Says:

    It is a very sad and shocking news. We have lost a great memeber of our family and moreover a great human being. I still remember the days when we used to play in Chaman. Not many people passes away on such a blessed day like him which shows how good he was as a human being. May ALLAH grant him JANNAT.

    Our heartfelt condolences to his family. I was able to be with his mother and sister, Nargis latif Chachi, in Dhaka recently. I just want to let his family know that I had the Quran recited and finished at Haram Sharif in Makkah( before the Ka’aba) by orphans from the Saulat Madrasah and orphanage( as promised to Nargis Chachi). I cannot personally remember Asrar Chachu but have heard he was a wonderful person. May Allah grant him eternal peace in heaven and help his family to acquire the patience to bear such a great loss. Ameen.
