His Death and His Resting Place: Mohammad Adam Ayub passed away just a few months before his 19th birthday on the 10th Muharram, Sunday 27th December 2009. His funeral took place at Madni Mosque, Bradford BD3. Adam’s resting place is Bowling Cemetery Bradford.
Life Story: Adam was the first grandson of two families. He was born with a heart condition and went through a few surgeries in his childhood, but he was growing well. Adam was a very happy and content child. Everyone loved him for his kind, polite and caring nature. He was very popular among family and his friends due to his smile and beautiful eyes.
Adam lived a fulfilling life in his eighteen years. In September 2009 he started his degree at Leeds Metropolitan University, but over the Christmas holidays he suddenly passed away due to pneumonia. In 2012, Adam was awarded the posthumous degree by Leeds Metropolitan University. His younger brother Arslan Ayub accepted the degree on Adam’s behalf. That same year the University offered a special award in honour of Adam – the Adam Ayub Award – to be given to a student who studied the same course as Adam. Craig Hammond was the recipient.
DUA FOR ADAM
اللهُـمِّ اغْفِـرْ لَهُ وَارْحَمْـه ، وَعافِهِ وَاعْفُ عَنْـه ، وَأَكْـرِمْ نُزُلَـه ، وَوَسِّـعْ مُدْخَـلَه ، وَاغْسِلْـهُ بِالْمـاءِ وَالثَّـلْجِ وَالْبَـرَدْ ، وَنَقِّـهِ مِنَ الْخطـايا كَما نَـقّيْتَ الـثَّوْبُ الأَبْيَـضُ مِنَ الدَّنَـسْ ، وَأَبْـدِلْهُ داراً خَـيْراً مِنْ دارِه ، وَأَهْلاً خَـيْراً مِنْ أَهْلِـه ، وَزَوْجَـاً خَـيْراً مِنْ زَوْجِه، وَأَدْخِـلْهُ الْجَـنَّة ، وَأَعِـذْهُ مِنْ عَذابِ القَـبْر وَعَذابِ النّـار
Dua for the dead in the Funeral prayer
Transliteration : Allaahum-maghfir lahu warhamhu, wa 'aafihi, wa'fu 'anhu, wa 'akrim nuzulahu, wa wrasse' mudkhalahu, waghsilhu bilmaa'i waththalji walbaradi, wa naqqihi minal-khataayaa kamaa naqqaytath-thawbal-'abyadha minad-danasi, wa 'abdilhu daaran khayran min daarihi, wa 'ahlan khayran min 'ahlihi, wa zawjan khayran min zawjihi, wa 'adkhilhul-jannata, wa.

Translation: O Allah, forgive him and have mercy on him and give him strength and pardon him. Be generous to him and cause his entrance to be wide and wash him with water and snow and hail. Cleanse him of his transgressions as white cloth is cleansed of stains. Give him an abode better than his home, and a family better than his family and a wife better than his wife. Take him into Paradise and protect him from the punishment of the grave [and from the punishment of Hell-fire].
