Note: Message received on 7/14. Posted on 7/15
Asalaamu Walaikum Dear Brothers and Sisters,
It is with very deep sorrow and regret that I must inform you of the passing of our dear friend and brother, Dr. Ahmed Morad today in Patterson, NJ.
Dr. Morad was one of the original Founders of ICCNY and part of a small group of very dedicated men, including his lifelong best friend, Brother Abdellatif Zureiqi, who fought tirelessly for decades to save and protect our mosque and was instrumental in making our Islamic Center what it is today. We will always be grateful to Dr. Morad and remember him for his continued hard work, good deeds and dedication to the ICCNY. He always stood for what was right. May Allah Bless and Reward Dr. Morad for his good deeds, for we would not have our wonderful mosque without his hard work.
May Allah forgive his sins, Grant Dr. Morad mercy and admit him into the highest level of Paradise. May Allah grant all of Dr. Morad’s beloved family and his close friends patience to help them through this extremely difficult time.
Dr. Morad’s burial will be tomorrow morning, 11am, at the Kensico Cemetery, 273 Lakeview Avenue, Valhalla, NY 10595.
Prayers and condolences may be offered to Dr. Morad’s family and close friends tomorrow at the ICCNY, 1558 Washington Blvd, Stamford, CT 06902 from 5:00p to 9:00p.
Maher Hussein
ICCNY Board President
