Demise of Maj Iftikhar Ahmed Malik, 3 Punjab (ABD-5)

Editor’s Note: No photograph of Maj Iftikhar Ahmed Malik was available in Course Archives.

Dear Course Mates,
Assalamo Alikum.
It is informed with deepest sorrow that Maj Iftikhar Ahmed Malik, 3 Punjab (ABD-5) expired at Lahore due to cardiac arrest on 9th March 2014 (إِنَّا لِلّهِ وَإِنَّـا إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعونَ). He was laid to rest at 1800 hrs on 10 March 2014.

May Allah grant him a prominent place in Junnah and provide strength to the family to bear this irreparable loss, Aameen. Please pray for his maghfirat.

For condolence please ring his son Saad at the following cell number:-

Maj Iftikhar was popularly known as PEHLWAAN. He was a straight forward gentle person, though he was called Pehlwaan but he never exerted his muscles on others. He had a special taste for his diet. He was always available to the Course mates for any advice or help. He will surely be missed. May his soul rest in eternal peace and his children be a source of sadqa-e-jariya for him. Aameen.

A flower wreath was laid on his grave on behalf of 2nd SSC, courtesy Lt Col Qadeer (SSH-2). A very good precedence set by Lahore Chapter worth emulating by Karachi and Rawalpindi Chapters. It should be made an SOP.

May the soul of Iftikhar rest in eternal peace. Aameen.

    Rest in peace Iftikhar, you were always a very decent and a helpful human being. Spent those wonderful two years with you in 23 punjab in Lahore. Will miss you a lot. May Allah give you your rightful place in Jannah. Ameen.

    Col Qadeer may Allah bless you for placing a Floral Wreath on his grave.

    Rest in peace, my friend, rest in peace.

  6. Indeed a great loss to the family. May they be blessed with strength and fortitude. may Allah bless Iftikhar’s soul.

  7. Lt Col Naeem Ahmed Khan (HDR-4) says:

    I did not meet Iftikhar elsewhere, till he landed with me as student at MP School DI Khan. What a pleasing personality he was. He was declared the MOST POPULAR STUDENT OF THE COURSE. He was the only student who owned a car and it remained at service of all student officers and used to be barely available for his personal use.
    Rest in eternal peace, Iftikhar. May you be specially blessed by Allah with His mercies and forgiveness. Ameen.

  8. Maj Munir Ahmed (HDR-3) says:

    May Allah bless the departed soul with His infinite mercy & bless the bereaved family with patience to bear this irreparable loss (Aameen).

  9. Lt Col Qadeer Ahmad Chaudhry (SSH-2) says:

    May Allah bless the deceased’s soul in eternal peace in Junnat ul Firdaus. Aamin.

    This time the strength of Course mates’ attendance on Nimaz e Janaza was not that much as expected probably due to lack of communication or a bit difficult location of deceased’s residence. In future it is a request to all Course mates that whosoever gets the sad info of this nature he should communicate to others immediately with necessary details.

    Secondly it shall be remembered that it is one of the obligations for each other to attend the nimaz-e-janaza of a Muslim colleague provided one can manage. In Lahoer mostly the bulk of Course mates are living in Askari Colonies where they can group with each other. In this regard efforts of Maj Rashid, Course secy at Lahore Chapter are highly appreciated.

  10. Lt Col Masood alam (SSH-3) says:

    May Allah bless the departed soul and grant him a place in Janul Firdous and grant strength to all his loved ones to bear this great loss. Ameen.

    May Allah Almighty forgive his sins and grant him a prominent place in Jannat AlFirdaus, Ameen. If I remember correctly we were together in Kahan near Dera Bugti when three guns of my battery were deployed there. Sometimes we used to have a nice time in the evenings cribbing session.
