The Passing of Br. Zahid Ali

Br. Zahid Ali, former Treasurer of IIT and community worker, passed away at Ajax Pickering hospital on Saturday, March 2. He was a good brother, always smiling and ever vigilant over financial matters of the organization. He battled many health difficulties with patience and a great sense of humor. I have learnt the following from his life:

  1. Bear your difficulties with dignity. He never complained and never made anyone feel burdened by his challenging circumstances. Instead of asking for help, he offered help to others.
  2. Do anything you are assigned with excellence. Br. Zahid spent extra time ensuring that all records of the organization were up to date.
  3. Family Matters. Br. Zahid was always the first to arrive and set up his fundraising table, and then the first to leave the premises after a meeting/event to return home to his family. His love, commitment, sacrifice and hard work towards his family were exceptional.
  4. Don't get caught up with ideals only; be a realist. Br. Zahid was not shy of asking the tough questions. He was pragmatic and a realist, never taking things that matter for granted.
  5. Death does not wait for us to mend fences. Br. Zahid had the good sense and the humility to deal with issues in a mature way, never allowing operational issues of the organization get into the way of his relationship with people. 
May Allah reward him; multiply his good deeds and forgive him for his mistakes. May Allah grant his family the comfort and patience to deal with his loss as a decree of Allah and a mercy for him.
