June 20, 1936 – November 12, 2016 
Saad Raheem Sheikh, Voice of Kenya Radio Broadcaster, Founding Member of the Young Muslim League, President of the University of Nairobi Students Union, President of Stanford University’s International Student Association, East African Airways Global Advertising Manager, Advocate for women’s rights at the International Planned Parenthood Federation, Career Diplomat and long time Representative and Director of  the United Nations Population Fund, passed away peacefully on November 12, 2016 at Nanyuki Cottage Hospital. “Innal lillahi wa inna illahi rajaoon – To God we belong and to God shall we return.” Prayers were held at Pangani Masjid in Nairobi the following day and he was buried at Lang’ata Cemetery shortly thereafter. He was 80 years old and had suffered from Alzheimer’s for the last 11 years.
Raheem is mourned by his beloved wife, Mahmuda Kathwari Sheikh, his two daughters, Misbah Mubeen and Minha Kauser, his son-in-law, Faisal Alam Quraishi and his three grandchildren, Murad Saad, Sathad Khidr and Seher Nur.
He was the son of the late Wazir Begum and the late Nabi Baksh, Nairobi City Council Officer, brother of the late Inayat Begum, the late Naseem Ahsan Qureshi, the late Suraiya Khanum, the late Abdul Rahman Bazmi Shaikh, the late Inayat Begum, the late Abdul Rasheed Sheikh, and is survived by his youngest brother, Muhammad Amin Sheikh.
Raheem was kind, humble and generous beyond measure. He traveled the world but loved his birthplace and homeland of Kenya most of all. He was a proud Kenyan citizen and it’s a blessing that he spent his last days by the foothills of Mt. Kenya in Nanyuki, his favourite place on earth.
Raheem will be missed by his family and friends here and across the world. May Allah grant him Janaat-al-Firdous, the highest garden in heaven.

    It was in 2016 that our respected Raheem Sheikh Shaheb passed away. I was thinking of him and searched Google to get any information.
    Mr. Sheikh was Desk Officer, our mentor. He and bhabi came to Dhaka and we were young officers OF UNFPA, Bangladesh.
    I cannot articulate what a kind but professional gentleman he was. Our late condolences to all.
