I met him a couple of times along with some other GNI members back in the days. Very intense and boy does he have a way with words when he does not like you (not me ...thank god). He was a nice fellow and I am sorry for his family & friends loss. These are trying times and you never know what is in the mind of your neighbours. Be nice people! May he RIEP!!

Indira, thank you for  posting the very sad πŸ˜’πŸ’”news.

I met my bro Khaleel many times through another gnier. He visited my home and enjoyed my duck curry etc. Last yr he asked me for few of my recipes incl. duck curry and my thanksgiving turkey. He also enjoyed my mom’s Mauby and plantain chips.

as Cher said, he had a way with words…he respected all religions and was very knowledgeable in many.

May his soul find eternal peace. Only God gives and only God can take…obviously God was ready for himπŸ™πŸ½πŸ™πŸ½

Reason, Season, or Lifetime
People come into your life for a reason, A season or a Lifetime.
When you know which one it is, you will Know what to do for that person.
When someone is in your life for a REASON, it is usually to meet a
Need you have expressed. They have come to assist you through a difficulty, to provide you with guidance and support, to aid you physically, emotionally, or spiritually.
They may seem like a godsend and they are. They are there for the reason you need them to be. Then, without any wrongdoing on your part or at and inconvenient time, this person will say or do something to bring the relationship to an end. Sometimes they die. Sometimes they walk away. Sometimes they act up and force you to take a stand. What we must realize is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilled, their wake is done. The prayer you sent up has been answered and now it is time to move on.
Some people come into your life for a SEASON, because your turn has come to share, grow or learn. They bring you an experience of peace or make you laugh. They may teach you something you have never done. They usually give you an unbelievable amount of joy. Believe it, it is real.
But only for a season.
LIFETIME relationships teach you lifetime lessons, things you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation. Your job is to accept the lesson, love the person and put what you have learned to use in all other relationships and areas of your life. It is said that love is blind but friendship is clairvoyant.
HUMAN CONNECTIONS ARE ESSENTIAL TO HEALTH AND WELL-BEING. THANK EVERYONE WHOSE PRESENCE IN YOUR LIFE HAS MADE A DIFFERENCE.

The faculty of the Department for the Study of Religion at San Diego State University sadly announces the passing of Dr. Khaleel Mohammed, Professor of Islamic Studies.
Dr. Mohammed, born in Guyana, studied Islamic law at Imam Muhammad ibn Saud Islamic University in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. After completing a Master’s degree in Judaism and Islam at Concordia University, Montreal, he obtained a Ph.D. in Islamic law at McGill University. He then moved to Brandeis University where he completed a two-year Kraft-Hiatt postdoctoral fellowship about the imagery of the Jew in Hadith literature. Dr. Mohammed came to SDSU in 2003 to teach courses related to Islam, Quran, World Religions, and the Abrahamic faiths.
Dr. Mohammed published three scholarly books and more than 20 journal articles. In 2005, he co-authored Coming to terms with the Qur’an, with Professor Andrew Rippin of University of Victoria, Canada. His David in the Muslim Tradition: The Bathsheba Affair was published by Lexington Press in 2014. Dr. Mohammed’s latest book, Islam and Violence, was published in 2019 as part of the Cambridge University Press series Elements in Religion and Violence.
He also served as Director of the Center for Islamic and Arabic Studies at SDSU and was associate faculty in SDSU’s LGBTQ+ Studies program. His research interests included Islamic and Arabic studies, Islamic law (classical and modern), comparative religion, Jewish/Christian/Islamic encounter, Qur’anic exegesis (classical and modern), hadith, gender/sex issues and sexuality in Islam, terrorism, antisemitism in Islam, Arab-Israeli relations, and reform in Islam. He was a strong proponent of interfaith marriage between Muslims and non-Muslims, without the traditionally required conversion of the non-Muslim spouse, and was a registered marriage-officiant.
Dr. Mohammed often testified as an expert witness for the prosecution in cases involving allegations of terrorism-related activities. Active in the pursuit of interfaith understanding, Dr. Mohammed participated in numerous interreligious dialogues between Muslims, Jews, and Christians, and is well-respected among scholars of Jewish-Christian-Muslim relations.
Khaleel considered working at SDSU to be one of the greatest accomplishments of his career. SDSU was his pride and joy, and he loved his students.
The faculty of the Department for the Study of Religion extends its condolences to the family of Dr. Khaleel Mohammed, as do his colleagues across the College of Arts and Letters.
