It is hard to believe Zuhtu has passed onto the next world. Despite his young age of 25, he lived a lifetime that most others don’t get to live. He married his first love and the last five years of his life had been his most treasured. He named his only child Mert because it translated from Turkish all the ideals he had hoped his son would have: strength, courage, honor, sincerity and truth.
Zuhtu fulfilled one of his ultimate dreams which was to work in NYC and he was especially proud of his workplace. He truly felt that he was on top of the world. What people don’t realize, however, was that Zuhtu was one of many Muslims whom died that terrible day. Though he wasn’t a regularly practicing Muslim, he strived to be a good husband, parent, son, and human being-all of which Islam preaches.
The world has lost one of its most loved human beings. We can’t express how deep our loss is and how much we miss him. For his wife, Leyla, whom was madly in love with her husband, and the rest of his family, their lives will never be the same. In our hearts we know his soul will greet us with open arms on the other side of God’s door when we, too, pass from this life and into the next. We love you and miss you intensely. Rest in peace until we see each other again.
