Passing of Mr. Mohamed El-Leissy

It is with great sadness to inform you of the passing of our beloved teacher Mr. Mohamed El-Leissy.

A man who has been part of the very fabric of AIA for more than 2 decades, who selflessly dedicated himself to educating and mentoring our students with great humility and in a manner that exemplified the best of Muslim character.

Mr. Mohamed had been diagnosed with leukemia but in testament to his character he accepted it as a test from Allah and believed it was a blessing that made him a better Muslim. His heart was at ease with the Qadar of Allah.

Mr. Mohamed El-Leissy will definitely be missed by all, staff and students, past and present. He has left behind a wonderful legacy. Our duaa is with his family and his loved ones.

The janazah will be held at Fawkner Mosque (Dar ul-Uloom College) at 1pm tomorrow, Tuesday 11th April. The burial will be at 3pm insha Allah. As of this moment there isn’t an area for the women to join in the prayer but we will keep you informed of any changes.

إِنَّا لِلّهِ وَإِنَّـا إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعونَ‎‎
"We belong to Allah and to Him we shall return."

أن العين لتدمع وإن القلب ليخشع ولا نقول إلا ما يرضي ربنا

"The eyes are shedding tears and the heart is grieved, and we will not say except what pleases our Lord."


El Leissy Mohammed
