Karim Khan Passes away


The Muslim community of California is mourning the death of  Br. Karim Khan, one of its most active members who generously supported all humanitarian and Islamic causes to make a positive impact for the betterment of the community. Professionally, he was very successful and served as Senior Vice President-Trade and Finance of the Bank of America for the last several decades.  Br. Karim Khan died after three months of hospitalization. Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji'oon

May Allah rest his soul in eternal peace in Jannah and give his family fortitude and courage to bear the irreparable loss. 

My heart goes out to the entire family, especially his respected wife,  Sr. Rukhsana Khan, two adorable daughters  Roomina and Alia   and scores of other family members.  I share their sorrow and grief during this difficult time and offer my heartfelt condolences to all of them.  

I had known  Br. Karim Khan  and  Sr. Rukhsana Khan for many years. We lived in the same city and our kids grew up together. I shall never forget how many times both  Br. Karim and  Sr. Rukhsana came to the hospital where my deceased wife,  Shahana, had been in coma for three months fighting for her life. Both came to visit us at the hospital  several times  to  cheer me up and my family! 

Funeral prayers   for  Br. Karim Khan  were held on Sunday,  November 16,  at The Islamic Center of San Gabriel Valley in Rowland Heights and

he was laid to rest in the La Verne Muslim Cemetery. - Rafique Ahmed
