Inna Lillahi wa Innaa Ilaihi Raji'un

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Br. Zahid Ali, former Treasurer of the Islamic Institute of Toronto, today at the Ajax Pickering Hospital.


Br. Zahid was the son of Bibi Sheereen Ali; husband of Sr. Sherida Ali and father of Faatima Ali, Ridwan Ali and Yusuf Ali.

He was the brother of Acklema Ali, Nazeera Dan, Nadira Ali and Khalid Ali.

Br. Zahid was the son-in-law of Br. Inshan Ali and Sr. Nazmoon Ali.

There will be a gathering at the Islamic Institute of Toronto (1630 Neilson Rd.) this evening, Saturday March 2nd, at 7:00 p.m. for family and friends to remember him and offer their condolences to his family.

Janaaza will be held at the Islamic Foundation of Toronto, 441 Nugget Avenue on Sunday, March 3rd at 1:00 p.m (Salaatul Dhuhr). Burial will take place after the
Janaazah prayer at Pine Ridge Cemetery (S.E corner of Church St. and Taunton Rd - Ajax/Pickering).

Br. Zahid was exemplary in his service to Islam, and worked diligently for success in whatever task he was assigned. We pray that Almighty Allah forgive him, accept his good deeds and grant him the most elevated station in Paradise. We also pray that Allah grant his family patience to bear this great loss and give them solace and comfort at this time of their grief.
