It was with a sense of immense grief and profound loss that I heard of the untimely death of my beloved Uncle Farouk. He was not only a dearly beloved relative but also a source of true inspiration.
Farouk Uncle would have liked to have been considered an ordinary man, but in fact he was an extraordinary person. He would brighten our day with his generous but sincere compliments. He was a compassionate human who had a gift for motivating and inspiring people.
Farouk Uncle was also a man of principle and sound values. He believed that we have a moral responsibility to help those in need.
He was intellectual and he was also creative and inventive.
He used his knowledge of science and technology to effectively and artistically solve problems. These ranged from fixing technical equipment to developing housing facilities. He put his knowledge and talents at the service of both loved ones and the greater community, regardless of age, gender or ethnicity.
I will always treasure the moments I shared with Farouk Uncle. He encouraged me to pursue my dreams, and he helped me discover my potential. I cherish his priceless guidance in various aspects of life.
I will always be grateful to Farouk Uncle for the incredible gift he gave me only a few days before he left this world. It symbolises his concern and his creativity, and captures the essence of his personality.
Significantly, he passed away on the most holy day of the month of Ramazan, after midnight prayers.
Although Farouk Uncle is not with us any more, he will continue to be an inspiration.
May Almighty Allah grant Farouk Uncle Jennathul Firdous.
