O the contented soul! Return towards your Lord – you being pleased with Him, and He pleased with you! Then enter the ranks of My chosen bondmen! And come into My Paradise!
[Surah al-Fajr, Verses 27-30]
With deep faith and sorrow, The International Forum for Islamic Dialogue learned of the demise of Dr Najah Kadhim Al-Radhi, the secretary of IFID board.
Since 2000, he served IFID as an executive director, editor in chief of IFID’s publications and chairman of IFID’s board. He launched a youth educational course on Muslim Civic Participation and supported a MENA regional youth program, Success 21 Network. Through his books and lectures, he served thousands of youths throughout the world. Many institutions in Arab countries have benefited from his services and contributions.
All of IFID’s family and members of Success21 Network express their sincere condolences to his family, loved ones, friends and esteemed colleagues.
He was lively, generous, and most committed to reforming and modernizing Arab and Muslim societies.
