Say Hello to Faz site update, photos, video and discussion forums

Posted in News at 4:16 am by Omar

First of all, I would like to thank all those who attended the memorial service. It was an amazing scene, to see so many people turn out on short notice to remember and honor the life of one simple man was beautiful. This world is a better place due to his heart and unconditional love for everyone in it.

Over the last day or so, I’ve uploaded over 120 photos of Faz and with family and friends, a small portion of all the great photos he took. Thanks to Omar Usman and friends who rushed to sort and scan the photos and create a video montage before the memorial service. The photos and video are available in the photo gallery with more to come soon. Anyone who has photos or video with Faz is encouraged to share them by uploading them to the photo gallery as well. Pictures or video of the memorial service will be appreciated as well.

Finally, we have opened a discussion forum for anyone to talk about various topics. Everyone is welcome to share stories of how they met Faz, experiences they shared, your first thoughts when you first walked into Faz’s pizza shop, or just want to “say hello”. If you are have suggestions about the site, notice a problem, need help uploading photos, the forums are a great place to discuss these issues also, or feel free to send an email. Also, if you haven’t had a chance to visit the guestbook, please take a moment to “Say Hello” to Faz.

Faz Husain Memorial Took Place Today

Posted in News at 11:19 pm by Shaz

Today was Faz Husain’s memorial at Pioneer High School in Ann Arbor. It was the most beautiful thing I have ever seen. Family and friends gathered to pay tribute to an amazing human being who touched every life that he encountered. Looking out from the stage, one could say that there were at least 600 people in attendance. His sons, Ali and Ismail hosted the event, which included speeches by scholars, friends, and family. A slideshow presentation was also included to reflect Faz’s life story. It began with his early childhood and led up to his recent days. His passion to love was reflected in the speeches, pictures and songs that all took place during the memorial. Near the end, Ismail came on stage with a special announcement that we would like everyone to always “say hello” to a stranger, just as our beloved Faz would have. The evening was concluded with family and friends mingling to support each other and to give strength and courage to Nikki, Nadia, Ali, Ismail, Sabiha, Farah and Rumi to bear this irreparable loss. Of course, there was also Faz’s famous cheesy bread for everyone to enjoy while they viewed the stunning displays of pictures, articles and awards representing Faz’s life.

Once again, we would like to encourage you to sign the guestbook and “Say Hello” to Faz in heaven as he is smiling down upon us.
