Store Closed to Commemorate the Martyrdom of a 9/11 Terrorist- Fiction!

 
Summary of eRumor:
This is a forwarded email with an attached photo of a note hung on September 11, 2009 in a store window located in Houston, Texas.  The note in the photo says that the store will be closed to commemorate the martyrdom of Imam Ali.   The email says that he was one of the 9/11 terrorists who flew a hijacked jetliner into the 2001 attack of the World Trade Center in New York.
 
The Truth:
 
The owner of the Perfume Planet store in Houston, Texas told TruthorFiction.com that traditionally their store is closed every year during the observance of the martyrdom of Imam Ali.  Imam Ali was not a 9/11 terrorists or a pilot.    Ali, or Ali Ibn Abi Talib was born in Mecca in 600 AD and died in 661 and was the cousin and son-in-law of the founder of Islam, Mohammed.

The day of observance fell on the 21st day of the Muslim Ramadan season which by coincidence landed on September 11, 2009.
