Words from the author, Shaykh Abdul Aziz: Imran Sabir is my dear departed friend. He died after struggling with the effects of LOGIC Syndrome on March 3rd 2009. He had lost his sight as a young boy, suffered from a serious of respiratory problems and only had one functioning lung. Despite his many physical disabilities, his mind and spirit remained strong until the last.
Words from Shaykh Muhammad al-Yaqoubi: ‘I consider myself fortunate to have met Sidi Imran Sabir. I saw him as an example of sincerity, persistence and hope. He has left us, but his work was better than that of a thousand. May Allah reward him for inspiring the Muslim ummah.’
Words from Imam Zaid Shakar: Although he was afflicted with a wide array of crushing physical challenges that would rob him of his mobility, his eyesight, his speech, his teeth, and nearly his very breath, as he spent most of his life breathing through a tracheosmy tube, he could not be denied the ability to make a rich contribution to society during his short lifetime. Imran was able to overcome the challenges he faced physically, as a result of his battle with LOGIC Syndrome, by developing himself spiritually and intellectually. By so doing, he was able to tap into a deep, pure river of humanity that brought forth the character, talents, and an indomitable love of life that so deeply touched all who knew him.
