Dr. Syed M. Khaleeq Passes away


An email received by Pakistan Link states: “It is announced with disbelief, shock and deep sadness that Dr. Syed Mohammad Khaleeq (May Allah bless his soul) passed away due to liver and kidney failure in Faisalabad, Pakistan, today Thursday, February 15, 2007.” He was buried in his ancestral cemetery in Karachi.
Dr. Khaleeq was living with his son Bilal Khaleeq, attorney at law, in Omaha, Nebraska who took him and Mrs. Khaleeq to Pakistan a couple of weeks earlier honoring his father’s wish.
“Dr. Syed M. Khaleeq served for over 20 years as Head of Children Hospital in Riyadh (Saudi Arabia) and came to America in 1991. Soon after he joined PAGH and served as the Chairman of the Publication Committee and Editor-in-Chief of “Raabta”, the monthly official PAGH publication. His better-half Mrs. Munawara Noori Khaleeq is a well educated and thoroughly read Islamic scholar and an articulate author/writer. This fine couple dedicated their lives to serve the noble cause of propagation of Islam as a tag team through print and electronic media.
“Dr. Khaleeq lived in Houston on and off for over 15 years. He truly loved Houston and the circle of friends he established over the years. Reciprocally, Houstonians gave him love, respect and held him in the highest esteem. He was loved by all and hated by none. His gentle manner, his scholarship and his superb sense of humor and quick-wit answers to every question made him quite special and unique.”
