As-Salaamu â€˜Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakaatuhu:
As you may know, over a week ago, I was admitted to Mt. Sinai hospital in New York due to high blood sugar levels and for surgery on an infected foot. Alhamdulillah, since that time, my blood sugar and the infection have responded well to rest and antibiotics, and as a result; I have not had to have surgery. If my condition continues to improve, my doctors expect for me to be released within a few days.
On behalf of myself and my family and on behalf of the MANA Diwan and Majlis, I thank the community for the concern you have expressed for my well-being and for your duâ€™a.
May Allahâ€™s blessings and mercy be upon us all.
Your brother, Imam Al-Hajj Talib â€˜Abdur-Rashid, Deputy Amir/General Secretary, MANA
