Our Brother Hodari Abdul-Ali
Has returned to the Creator
The family of Brother Hodari Abdul-Ali wishes to share with you that Hodari returned to his Creator on Saturday, April 30, 2011 surrounded by his wife and children.
A janazza (funeral pray service) is planned for Monday, May 2 at 1:30pm following Slat Thur (noon prayer) at Masjid Muhammad. The Mosque is located at 1519 Islamic Way (4th Street, NW near the intersection of New Jersey Avenue and P Street, NW) in Washington, D.C.
Please feel free to bring flowers or cards to the Monday prayer service or the Memorial Service. A public Memorial is being planned. Details of the Memorial will be announced as details are confirmed.
Hodari was celebrated by his friends and family less than a week before he left us. The outpouring of love was so valuable to him and appreciated beyond words. He delighted in the songs and the words of praise and honor. The Langston Room at Busboys and Poets we filled to the brim. And though nearly 100 people could not get into the room, they stayed in the restaurant just to show their support.
