On the night of February 15, 2021,Rasul and Anila Afzili were traveling home from his mother’s home after celebrating his birthday with family. They were tragically killed in a head-on collision by a suspected impaired driver, leaving behind their two small children, Jannah (3 years old) and Azaan (7 months old).
Also in the car, were their two small children. Jannah was hospitalized for a few days and released after suffering a broken femur and broken arm and Azaan has been treated and released from the hospital.
“My family is grieving and heartbroken over the loss of my brother and sister-in-law because someone chose to be irresponsible and selfish,” said Rasul’s sister, Naeema Afzili. “My niece and nephew are now orphans because somebody chose to get behind a wheel after drinking.” The children were so very loved by their parents. Their parents were very kind and generous people and made a difference in the world. Now, they are gone, and their children will grow up without parents over a tragic and senseless act.
Funds raised will go directly to a trust fund designated for their college/future. The children will be adopted by their aunt.
