The following is a letter of condolence from NYS Assembly Member Charles Barron on the passing of Brother Minister Abdul Hafeez Muhammad.

"Council Member Inez Barron and I were shocked and deeply saddened when we heard of the passing of my beloved Brother Minister Abdul Hafeez Muhammad, whom we have known and worked with for decades in New York City.

"Our heartfelt condolences go out to his wife Loray and family.

"Brother Min. Abdul Hafeez Muhammad and I marched in the streets of New York City together, along with Minister Henry Muhammad of Muhammad Mosque No. 7c in my beloved East New York, Brooklyn to protest police terrorism and self-destructive community violence. We sat on panels together that dealt with the issues of gentrification, education, health, poverty, housing, mass incarceration, homelessness and more. You name it, we were on it! The very last forum I shared with my beloved Brother Minister was when Minister Ava Muhammad came to New York to Temple No.7 to deal with the topic of separation, which I support!

"Most importantly, he was my friend!! We were both into leadership training and not only did he love teaching leadership, he did it well. He was a model of effective leadership.

"I shared many stages with him and of all the speakers, he spoke the longest, and was the most charismatic and captivating to the audience. People tuned in to every word he spoke and so did I.

"My Brother Minister Abdul Hafeez Muhammad loved his people and the people loved him back even more. I will be encouraging my colleagues to co-name a street after him, so that his legacy will live on forever.

"Rest in peace and power my Brother, for a job well-done. I'm gonna miss you!"

Love and Respect,

NYS Assembly Member Charles Barron
