Death will come to all of us. The ending will be upon the nature we lived our life. Such was the life of Haji Dr. Muhammad Aktar, who lived his life serving others and died upon the love of His Beloved ﷺ.

Last year I was contacted by the sister of the deceased requesting an artwork to be made around a poem that was written by her brother. His nephews relays that

“In the last 2 years of his life he had completely immersed himself in the Love of Rasulullah saw. A few days before leaving this world he shared the attached poem, which he took partly from a dua and also added some words himself, to his younger sister. Also, before leaving this world he experienced the Blessed Vision of Rasulullah ﷺ”

One of the artwork has the 99 names of Allah and the other 99 names of the Prophet ﷺ which were chosen by the committee members of Manchester Central Masjid VP.
