HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOAZZAM BHAI!

HISAAB-E-UMR KA ITNA SA GOSHWARA HAY
TUMHAY NIKAAL KAY DEKHA TO SAB KHASARA HAY

As I remember my beloved brother Moazzam Bashir on his birth anniversary today ((July 08, 1959 – January 14, 2008), I’m trying to capture the glorious memories spend with him but words fall short and my vocabulary and memory fails to put down those in lines.

He not only loved bringing happiness and joy to everyone; but he was a kind, caring, and compassionate person, who was always there to comfort us in our times of sorrow and grief.

Let us always remember, it is not the number of years we live in this world that is important; it is how we live those years that is important; how many people we reach out to and touch; how many people we can bring to God and to the service of our nation. The quality of life is much more important than the quantity of life; and when it comes to the quality of life, we can all say: “Moazzam Bhai lived a full life and, literally, touched thousands of people to rejoice with wonderful moments.”

Moazzam Bhai vanished away 3 years ago, and I haven't come to reality with until now. It's still like a dream. It didn't seem real. Now I know that when someone passes away, there isn't any one word long enough or big enough to describe it. I could talk about it, and I could go on for pages, but even an entire book can't replace an entire life. I love you, Moazzam Bhai, and will always think of you. You are a great thing that happened to me and there are still lots of memories to talk about.

I'll miss him, but for now, some memories are still so fresh that I can still relate to him and know exactly what he would say if I was talking to him. As more time passes, I wonder if this will change. For now, I'll acknowledge and appreciate this.

May the Holy Spirit comfort us and give us strength, may God illuminate your eternal soul, and may you “dwell in the superlative spot in the heavens.”

RIP
