It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Marhoom Al-Hajj Mir Ahmad Farid Talebi. The Marhoom will be laid to rest on Thursday, April 23rd, 2020.

On behalf of the Imam Ali Masjid community, we would like to convey our deepest sympathies and condolences to the family of the Marhoom. InshaAllah, upon the clearance of the social distancing and stay at home orders, arrangements to pay respects to the bereaved family will be announced.

All are requested to remember the Marhoom with the recitation of Surah al Fatiha and Salat al Wahsha tonight.

___اَللّٰهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَىٰ مُحَمَّدٍ وَّ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ، وَ ابْعَثْ ثَـوَابَها إِلَىٰ قَـبْرِ

allāhumma ṣalli ʿalā muḥammadiw wa āli muḥammad, wab ʿath thawābahā ilā qabri ____
