With Allah’s Name, the Merciful Benefactor, the Merciful Redeemer.
We bear witness that there is no G-d but the One G-d, the Creator of All, whom we know by the name of Allah.
We bear witness that Muhammad Ibn Abdullah was the Seal of the line of Prophets sent to Mankind by Allah, with the Qur’an (final divine revelation) and a most excellent model of conduct. Prophets that include Adam, Noah, Abraham, David, Solomon, and Jesus the Son of Mary, May Allah’s Eternal Peace and Blessings forever be upon them all.
We, the Family of Brother Muhammad Siddeeq, husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather, brother, son, friend, uncle, cousin, Imam, dedicated and tireless supporter of the late Imam W. D. Mohammed and his leadership, fellow clergy, educator, leader, foot soldier, energetic spirit of justice, co-worker, and tireless and firm voice for so many communities throughout the years, hereby announce that our beloved has resigned himself from this life on yesterday, July 27, 2019, after 82 years of consistency, the last 10 years giving the myeloma form of cancer all it could take, passing from this world with his family and loved ones at his side, to take a position with the Creator.
On behalf of his wife of 54 years, Fareedah, and his 20 children (he is preceded in death by one son, Qaadir, and one grandson, Basil), dozens of grandchildren and great grandchildren, and extended family, we thank you for your wonderful outpourings of love and respect for our beloved Muhammad, and we appreciate all you share. We have scheduled a Tuesday, July 30, 2019, Janaza service, at 11am. At this time, due to accessibility challenges, the Janaza prayer service location has been changed, and will no longer be at Masjid Al-Fajr. The new location is Martin University, 2186 N Sherman Dr, Indianapolis, IN 46218, in their Fr. Boniface
Harding “Gathertorium”. It is a main building with a globe like architectural feature. We will have a light meal offered at the same location beginning at 3pm, after the internment. A community gathering will be held at the same location from 3pm to 5pm, to remember our Brother and fellowship with each other. Food will be served.

An interesting note about Martin University, it was founded by the late Reverend Father Boniface Hardin, a tireless and distinguished worker and educator, who was also a close personal friend to Brother Muhammad Siddeeq and the Muslim community, and a photo of Imam W. D. Mohammed is on the 2nd floor hall of the Gathertorium building.
Internment is to be at Crown Hill Cemetery, 700 38th St, Indianapolis, IN 46208
