Yesterday, the Imam Siraj completed his last radiation treatment for prostate cancer (cancer 3X higher in African-Americans), yet expressed his eagerness to attend the janazah Muslims funeral service for Michael Jackson whenever it is held he said, “Even if I stand in the back, I want to be there”.

Someone asked me,  “Why are we making a big deal about it!”.  I say we are not making a BIG deal about it.  It is the right of a Muslim to receive condolences and we are doing that by the Prophet’s (pbuh) instruction independent of the faith of the deceased.  The burial of the dead is an obligation upon the living; it is called in Islamic terminologyfard kifiyya (collective obligation).   No one can bury himself or herself; the living must bury the dead.

May Allah help them. We have not had a major figure in the pop world pass away before Micheal Jackson. I pray that we will do our best and that Allah will have
