We have justlearnt that our very own Dr Khalid Rai’s father passed way 5/27/2013.
Muhammad Faqir Rai was 88 years old. He was a CPA who also held the Master of Laws and Master of Islamic Studies degrees. He was a frequent publisher and contributor on many Islamic topics and very well regarded in his home district and surrounds of Lahore.
He made is a habit of perform his Jumma prayer at the same masjid for over 50 years)
He is survived by his wife Sultana, daughters Shaista, Aqeela, Sarwat and sons Zameer, Farooq, Kashif Khalid and Asif
(This passisng date is is also Khalid’s birthdate. Khalid is the only sibling ion the USA.)
Janaaza prayer was held on the same day at the Daata Darbar of Daata Sahib – Hazrat Ali Hujveri (Lahore)
(Daata Darbar is the Mausoleoum of Abul Hassan Ali Ibn Usman al-Jullabi al-Hajvery al-Ghaznawi (ابوالحسن علی بن عثمان الجلابی الھجویری الغزنوی) or Abul Hassan Ali Hajvery (sometimes spelled Hujwiri, Hajweri, Hajveri), also known as Daata Ganj Bakhsh: داتا گنج بخش, which means the master who bestows treasures) or Daata Sahib (He significantly contributed to the spreading of Islam in South Asia)
We share our thoughts and prayers with him at this difficult time of loss for him and his family
Inna lilahi wa inna ilayhi raajioon
