MEDICAL AID FOR GAZA

RAMADAN FOOD BASKETS and HOT MEALS for IFTAR

What's happening right now in Gaza is beyond horrific. We have now over 50 people killed today from the Great Return March with a total of over 100 dead and 12,000 injured since March 30th. The Gazans have been under seige since 2007, denied clean water, electricity, medicines. No cement allowed in to rebuild homes , no books allowed in to build minds.

Help us to support them with two projects:

1. MEDICAL supplies for hospitals to treat the wounded . We have sent USD12,000 last week to three hospitals in Gaza.
2. Food baskets and hot meals for Ramadan to help the poor. We are sending USD20,000 over the next week inshaa Allah for this.

Al-Marhum Al-Hafiz Dr Fadi M.R. AlBatsh (24/6/1983–21/4/2018)

Posted in News

We in Viva Palestine Malaysia (VPM) and Muslim Professionals Forum (MPF) have known al-Hafiz Dr Fadi since he began his PhD studies in University Malaya in 2011.

He is undoubtedly an academic scholar of distinction, a genius really. He won the Ivy League, Yayasan Khazanah-VPM scholarship for his PhD studies in 2013. Three years later in August 2016, he received both the Special Mention Award and High Achiever Award, at the Yaysan Khazanah Scholarship, 10th Anniversary, presented by the Prime Minister of Malaysia. This is apart from the many other honours and prizes for his scholastic excellence.

And within a year of working as a senior electrical engineering lecturer in UNIKL, he won a research grant from the Malaysian government and was supervising 3 postgraduate engineering students. His work and research in electrical engineering and power electronics have been widely published in the top tier engineering journals.

He has memorized the Quran since childhood and is distinguished among the few who holds the Sanad Riwayat Shu’bah and Hafs from Aasim. He has taught the recitation rules of the Holy Quran with Tajweed for the past 13 years.

He has led Terawih prayers in Palestine for 6 years and in Malaysia for the past 5 years. He was awarded first place in the Sixth International Postgraduate Al-Quran Competition, Malaysia, 2015. His Quranic prowess has been duly recognized world wide and in Malaysia he holds the “Tauliah Mengajar & Berceramah” Wilayah Persekutuan.”

Despite his brilliance and multiple achievements, Fadi remained a very humble person, soft spoken, thoughtful and contemplative. He has always led our Muslim Professionals Forum (MPF) & Viva Palestina Malaysia (VPM) annual Terawih prayer for the past few years. He has been very active in various platforms, including VPM, Boycott Divestment & Sanctions (BDS) and Palestinian Students Organisations in Malaysia to advance the cause for justice and peace for Palestine.

His wife, Enas F. has similarly obtained her Masters in Islamic Studies from University Malaya and they are blessed with 3 children, Doaa Fadi, Aseel Fadi and Muhammad Fadi.

It has been a short 35 years, with a tragic demise but an unequivocally blessed life in the service of Allah and His Deen. May he be blessed bountifully with His Highest Gardens of Paradise in Jannatul Firdaus. And may Allah confer patience and forbearance to his family and the Palestinian community upon this great loss of their Palestinian son.
