JUMA, Mohamed Karmali Rashid

February 22, 1945 – Iringa, Tanzania
June 1, 2016 – Calgary, Alberta

With heavy hearts the family of Mohamed K. R. Juma announces his passing at the age of 71, on June 1, 2016 in Calgary, AB.

Mohamed was born in Iringa (Tanzania). Left to mourn his passing and treasure his memory are: his best friend Gulshan of Calgary; daughters Zeynin (Martin) of Calgary and Shafina of Adelaide, Australia; siblings Amir of Calgary, Farida of Toronto, and Shamin (Alnoor) of Toronto; extended family across Canada and many friends.

Mohamed spent his childhood and early adulthood in Iringa, bringing his family to Canada in 1975. As a father, he was committed to instilling strong values towards family, faith, community service, and excellence in education. Accordingly, he was devoted to practising his beliefs, which included attending Jamat Khana on a regular basis and serving others. He was also very dedicated to both his nuclear and extended family. Although quiet by nature, he consistently reached out to his extended family and built strong connections with them.

Funeral Services will be held at South Jamat Khana (4531 Manitoba Rd S.E. Calgary, AB) on Saturday, June 4, 2016 at 11:00 a.m. Graveside Service to follow at Rocky View Garden of Peace. Condolences may be forwarded through

    Oh my dearest brother how I miss you & your calls every night. I never thanked you for ensuring that we had the best life had to offer by making sure we had the best education whilst you gave up your education to run the family business & take care of Dad. You took such good care of mom while she was alive & happy to give of yourself. So generous to everyone but yourself. May you rest in eternal peace. Miss you terribly. Love Shamin
