Dear Abba,

Salaam.  Inna lillahi wa inna ilaihi raji’un.

Personal Thoughts on Dr. Fakhri

Personal Thoughts on Dr. Fakhri

From Dr. Shahid Siddiqui

(Member of IQRA’ Executive Board, Fund Raising Committee)

Salamua likum Wa Rehmatullaah

Passing away of Dr. Abdul Waheed Fakhri is a great loss to the Muslim Community. Inna Lillahe wa Inna-Ilehe Rajeoon.


He was a man of great integrity,  honesty and a kind of caring and compassionate personality that was hard to miss. I have had the privilege of working with him at the Iqra as a board of directors that he chaired and soon discovered the ‘Muttaqi’ he was.

Iqra has lost a true leader and we hope that his legacy will continue.  May Allah provide ‘Maghfirah’ and a place for him in Jannatul- Firdaus.

I think we should also celebrate his legacy as a pioneer of education in Chicago Land, and start a scholarship fund, or endowed chair to honor his work. The community has to build on the work of such sincere pioneers.

Shahid Siddiqui, Ph.D.
