Ahmed Mohamed Elradi “Abbas”
ALWAYS IN OUR HEARTS
AHMED EL RADI
Ahmed Mohamed Elradi “Abbas” who born in 1991, came from a modest background, in Khartoum North, Sudan. When he was 4 years old, the family moved to the United Arab Emirates where he was raised, completed his secondary school, and got his high school diploma in 2009. Then he admitted to the college of mechanical engineering at Multimedia University in Malaysia in September 2009. He continued his study until the family moved to Canada.
Ahmed was accepted at Carleton University of Ottawa, in the Electrical Engineering Program in 2011. While he was at the university, he made many friends, who respect him and consider him a real brother. At the time the family decided to move to Calgary in 2013, Ahmed played a huge role in looking for a house there for his family, he used to do all his duties as an elder son and brother with hope, satisfaction, and happiness.
Ahmed had completed two full years in the program and was entering his third year when he made the decision in February 2016 to move to Calgary to be with his family. He took a part-time job at a warehouse to support himself and contribute to the family expenses. Ahmed had been working for 3-4 months at this job and had been offered a permanent position before his death in September 2016 in a car accident. At that time, he had also made the decision to finish his engineering degree at the University of Calgary and was in the process of applying to their program. His intention was to both work and complete his tertiary education besides supporting his family. Ahmed strongly adhered to this value. He was a hardworking, kind, caring, and compassionate young man, who supported his parents and siblings both emotionally and financially.
Ahmed was described as a bright and kind angel who cared deeply for others; in terms of social activity, he strived for the betterment of many people, especially the most vulnerable ones. We always remember his cheerful spirit and his contributions as the Marketing and Media Director at Salam Association at Carleton University, to all social and charitable events, i.e. “Keep us Warm to Keep a Syrian Refugee Warm”.
Words will never suffice to describe the beauty of Ahmed’s morals, who’s beside his philanthropic and humanitarian work here and abroad, he was very well respected in his community, known for his kindness, grace, and a good sense of humor.
Ahmed was a cheerful, life-loving soul who omitted his needs and showed nobility to satisfy the needs of others. Despite the fact that during his university education, he was in urgent need to spend on himself and pay fees for his study, but with what he possessed of a spirit that senses the suffering of others, he has sought the mercy of God to do his role as a human being to ensure that anyone in need in his community or even the other communities around the world will get the requested care and attention. He knew that he would not solve the problem of poverty and orphans in the world, but he was confident that the pleasure and satisfaction of drawing a smile on a child’s face are better than waiting for the awakening of humanity. By the same token, two weeks before his shocking death, he adopted a young orphan girl from Pakistan. He believed that the more you help others the more your soul can gain access to the kingdom of universal tranquility.
Ahmed’s departure as a body has formed a gap in our souls that will never be filled, but the survival of his beliefs, compassion, and altruism is still there and we can hear him calling the depth of our emotions, and urging us to do more and continue the path that he started, his moral revolution is still flowing from Heaven to Earth, filling the depths of our senses with hope and action, calling from distance “will humanity awaken soon?”. He was a true champion and ambassador for our family, and he will be deeply missed by all of us and by those who were fortunate to have known his generous nature and his contagious positivity.
From this rostrum, we, the family of Ahmed Abbas declare that the foundation of this charitable organization is an extension of Ahmed’s humanitarian acts.
