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
