There simply aren’t enough adjectives to fully and adequately describe either the influence or character of a man like Tarek Reskan Mohammed Al-Kadri. In the wake of his passing, many of us have been left struggling to put together the words to properly express the impact Tarek has had in our own lives as well as in the lives of so many other people around the world.


No matter who you were, you were made to feel like the most important person in the world when you were with Tarek. He always demonstrated sincere caring, knew how to make you laugh, and carried himself with humility and genuine kindness.

The sheer extent of Tarek’s humility and life-changing impact on those around him is becoming increasingly apparent as more and more people come forward to express their respect and to talk about the influence he has had on their lives. It is clear that Tarek will be deeply missed by a great many people across the globe. We at the Muslim Legal Fund of America commit to creating a lasting legacy to honor him and his life´s work.
