“Opportunity is quick to pass on, and slow to come back.”
Imam Ali (a) Mizanul Hikmah
On behalf of the Al-Haadi Study Centre team, our condolences and duas to all of you on the recent passing of Marhum Syed Asad Jafri. He touched many lives and has left a huge void. InshaAllah, we will continue his legacy by acting upon the guidance of his many lectures.

Support for Students, Parents, and Volunteers
The recent passing away of Marhum Syed Asad Jafri has affected many of us. InshaAllah, this Sunday, in addition to the memorial by Student Council, our Counsellor/Social Worker, Br. Ali Raza will conduct a presentation for volunteers during the break as well as offer his assistance to students.
As well, the conflicts around us and how Muslims are portrayed can lead to anxiety, fear, behavior issues and strong emotions. Alhamdulillah, we have volunteers who can help. See below for message by our volunteer Social Worker, Br. Ali Raza, of Jaffari Support Services (JSS), who can provide some support not just for handling the current world conflict, but also for other issues or life changes such as illness, separation or death of a loved one.
My name is Ali Raza Hasan Ali and I am the School Social worker at Al-Haadi Study Centre. I hope this message finds you in good health. I want to take a moment to acknowledge the significant distressing events that have been unfolding in Palestine. These events can evoke a range of emotions, concerns, and questions for members of our community. As the social worker at Al-Haadi Study Centre, I am here to offer my support and lend a listening ear to students, staff, volunteers, and parents, who may be feeling the impact of these events.
In light of the ongoing situation, I would like to offer brief (15-20 minute) check-in meetings to discuss any concerns or feelings you may have related to these events. These check-ins will be a safe and confidential space for you to express your thoughts, ask questions, and receive emotional support if needed.
During these check-in meetings, we can explore ways to cope with distress, discuss available resources, or simply engage in conversation. My aim is to provide a supportive environment where we can collectively navigate these challenging times. Please note that all conversations will remain confidential and non-judgmental, and will only be completed under the agreement of informed consent.
If you would like to schedule a check-in with me for yourself or your child, please reach out to me via email at email@example.com, and I will do my best to accommodate your preferred time.
We are a strong and resilient community, and we will navigate these challenging times together. Please remember that you are not alone, and support is available.
