Trustees of FQMS deeply mourn the loss of our major benefactor, Mr Abdel Mohsin Al-Qattan. Mr Al-Qattan touched many; over decades he established and championed many institutions and charities.
He was a unique man of quiet dignity, resolve, dedication, discipline, high values and inspiring generosity, who expected the highest standards of himself and others. Yet he also showed empathy, sympathy and humanity. He was highly able and knowledgeable with a deep understanding of the history of the Arab world and of current affairs. He loved Arabic poetry, especially Al Mutannabi.
His courage was unfailing and he spoke the truth even when against the tide. This courage shone till the end, a solace to his family and friends. Allah Yirhamo. He will be sorely missed. May his legacy to Palestine live on.
