ISNA Offers Condolences on the Passing of Dr. Akbar Muhammad 

(Plainfield, IN - 4/12/16) Today, the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) offered sincere condolences on the passing of Muslim Academic Dr. Akbar Muhammad, the youngest son of Elijah Muhammad and brother to the late Imam WD Muhammad. He was a graduate of Al Azhar University and University of Edinburgh, Scotland.

Dr. Muhammad authored several books and articles including Racism, Sexism, and the World-System, A Note on the Concept of Zakah and Taxation and Muslims in the United States: An Overview of Organizations, Doctrines, and Problems.

In a statement, ISNA President Azhar Azeez said:

"Dr. Akbar Muhammad had a vast and deep understanding of Islamic history and jurisprudence (fiqh). He served as a mentor and teacher to many. Our sincere prayers and condolences go out to his family during this difficult time. To Allah we belong and to Allah we all will return."
