In the year 2004, on dec 28th, Usman, son of one of Gothenburg's earlier Swedish Muslim converts, had gone to Ireland on his honey moon. 22 years old at the time, he decided to head out alone on a treck in the mountains in Killarney.
He never came back to his wife. For two years he was listed as a missing person.
Today he has been found by a local farmer on one of his wanderings. Everything points to an accident, where he had fallen from a cliff. His dead body will be prepared for janaaza, (islamic burial), as I write this post, in Ireland.
The article was all over Göteborgs Posten, Gothenburg's main newspaper.
I remember two years ago when the story of him missing was all over the media and the lips of people who knew him. One never knows how one will leave earth. Imagine being newly-wed and losing your husband or wife on your honey moon? Reality truly beats fiction...
