AMP Offers Condolences to Shubair and Abusamaan Families


It is with utmost grief and sadness that we write to inform you of the tragic loss of Professor Mohammad Eid Shubair, his wife Rehab Mohamad Shubair, their daughter-in-law Najat Ayoub Alhelo, and their eldest son, Muhammad Malik Shubair in an Israeli airstrike on their home in the vicinity of the Al Shifa hospital in Gaza City. 

Professor Shubair is the father-in-law of our Chicago chapter board member, Alaa Abusamaan. We offer our deepest condolences to Alaa and his wife Hoda Shubair over the devastating loss of their loved ones. 

Professor Mohammad Eid Shubair was a well-respected scholar and president of the Islamic University in Gaza. Beloved by all in his community, his loss has sent shockwaves across Gaza and the world. Their home, in the immediate vicinity of the Al Shifa hospital, was bombed just three days ago. Those who survived the bombing and attempted to walk the close distance to the hospital were shot dead by Israeli forces besieging the hospital. 

The savagery of this genocidal rampage has destroyed any semblance of humanity expected from an occupying power such as Israel. The indiscriminate bombardment of Gaza has taken the lives of many relatives and friends of our staff and community members. The immense pain and trauma we’ve all experienced this month is indescribable. 

We pray that Allah accepts the Shubair family into the highest of heavens and grants them the status of martyrdom. We ask Allah to insert tranquility and patience in the hearts of those they left behind and to give us all strength as we fight against the genocide of the Palestinian people.
