Educationist Siddique Jaferi passes away

Bhatkal: Dr. Siddique Mohammad Jaferi, a renowned educationist, editor of "Reforms" and chairman of the International Seerah Academy passed away on 22 June 2005 due to heart failure. He was 61. His services in the fields of education, personality development and Islamic Da'wah were invaluable. 

Educated in Mumbai and Bangalore, in 1976 he launched his activities in Dubai along with his wife Dr. Roqaiya in the form of Al-Siddique Islamic English School to teach modern sciences with an Islamic perspectives. During the same time, he wrote his first rhyme for his students: ‘A for Allah’, which gained immense popularity world over. Prof. Rasheed Kausar Farooqui and Safia Iqbal later joined him in this venture and together they produced children’s rhymes on different subjects. The result of their efforts materialized in a book "Milky Way" which was published and subsequently recorded on audio cassettes by Jaferi. Syed Hamid Husain also included two new rhymes of his own: ‘I am a Muslim Girl’ and ‘I love you, O Allah’. 

Dr. Siddique Mohammad JaferiWhile Hussain is all set to reach out with the Islamic rhymes across the world, "Milky Way" is something that ought to be picked up by all those who care to listen to some meaningful lyrics that touch the soul. The text compilations with simple lyrics will be an all-out hit not just with kids, but even the older generation hooked to the western chartbusters. Of the ten, it’s the ‘Chirping Birds’ that one will rewind to again and again - a clear winner all the way. 

Jafery also launched the International Seerah Academy in India. He was the editor of "Reforms", India's first English-language magazine on personality development. Jafery was associated with the Muslim Majilis-e Mushawarat and many other social and educational organisations. He stood above regional and sectarian differences. Proficient in English, Urdu and Arabic, Jafery had a deep insight of the Quran and Seerah. His courses and lectures to both scholars and laymen were popular. In his death the community in South India and abroad has lost an asset. (SahilOnline News Service)
