Inna lilla he wa inna elaihe rajioun

It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Br. Mohamed Taufiq Yasin (Chico) who passed away on Sunday, August 2nd, 2020 in Florida. He was 65 years of age (Dob: April, 2nd, 1955)

He was originally from Anira St, Queenstown, Georgetown, Republic of Guyana.

He was the Son of the late Mohamed Yasin and the late Zenat Yasin.

He was the Twin Brother of Br. Tauqir Yasin who is a long-standing member of IIT and IIT’s Hajj Committee; Muzaffar Yasin (d), Nilofar Rampersaud (Guyana) and Mohamed Liaquat Yasin (d).

Br. Taufiq has been a regular visitor to Canada and has attended IIT whenever he is in Toronto. He will be missed.

May Allah forgive him, have mercy on him and grant him Jannatul Firdaus. Please keep him and the family in your Duas.

Janaazah and burial were on August 3 in MIami-Dade, Florida.

Be sure we shall test you with something of fear and hunger, some loss in goods or lives or the fruits (of your toil), but give glad tidings to those who patiently persevere, who say, when afflicted with calamity: "To Allah We belong, and to Him is our return" - they are those on whom (Descend) blessings from Allah, and Mercy, and they are the ones that receive guidance. 2:155-157
