V.M. Khaleelur Rahman

Dr. Faiz Ahmed C is to be felicitated for his excellent educational achievements on 6th February 2016 in a function to be held at 6.00 p.m. in A.S. Hall, Pernambut. Padma Shri Mr.  Mecca Rafeeque Ahmed, Chairman, Farida Group of Companies, is to be the Chief Guest in it and felicitate him. 

This function has been arranged by Talent Identification and Empowerment Trust (TIET) which is really doing a very great service to encourage, educate and empower youngsters. 

It is in the fitness of things that a great architect is to be felicitated by a great industrialist Mr. Mecca Rafeeque Ahmed who is the recipient of Padma Shri. Alhamdulillah – all praise and thanks be to Allah.

These gentlemen have worked hard to achieve their goals and Allah has blessed them with what they wanted. The holy Quran says in verse 13:11 - Indeed, Allah will not change the condition of a people until they change what is in themselves.

Pernambut has the credit of producing brilliant people in scientific as well as spiritual areas. In this town we can see people who are typically backward, highly orthodox with their own brand of religious education and also those who are well qualified in medicine, science and technology of which there is great emphasis in the holy Quran. 

This town has produced many doctors, practising lawyers, engineers, businessmen, tanners, architects, professors, teachers, technicians and even a pilot as far as I know. 

Dr. Faiz Ahmed hails from a respectable family connected with the leather industry. His father is Mr. C. Farooque Ahmed, son of Mr. C. Abdur Rasheed, younger brother of Mr. C. Abdullah who was a well known leather merchant of his time in Periamet, Chennai. 

A time was there when Muslim business men vied with one another in giving charities and donations for public and humanitarian causes. Mr. C. Abdullah was one of them. It is said that once he agreed to donate Rs.5000, a big amount at that time, for the building fund of a mosque. 

After sometime when Mr. C. Abdullah was approached for the amount, he asked his CEO Mr. P.K. Obedur Rahman, who was his son in law, to pay the amount. He hesitated because the company could not afford to donate that big amount. He told him in private “if we pay this amount, we will have to close the company”. Lo! The philanthropist asked him to pay the amount as promised for a noble cause !!!

Born in this respectable family, Dr. Faiz Ahmed C has proved his mettle in the education field and brought laurels not only to himself, but also to his family, his community and of course to the institutions he studied in. Today he is the darling of the people in Pernambut and also elsewhere.
