The Muslim community of Thousand Oaks in Southern California is mourning the loss of one of its most respected members, Br. Tahir Siddiqui, who passed away on Tuesday. Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji'oon.
Br. Tahir Siddiqui was a very likeable and extremely helpful person. He was popularly known as Uncle Tahir in the community. He was the loving father of Br. Suhel Siddiqui and father-in-law of Sr. Asra Siddiqui.
May Allah rest his soul in eternal peace in Jannatul Firdous and give his family fortitude and courage to bear the loss. My heartfelt condolences and sincere prayers are with the entire family during this most difficult time in their life.
