Remembering Ibrahim Abu-Rabi

(Edmonton) Former U of A Chair of Islamic Studies, Ibrahim Abu-Rabi, was widely admired for his unique ability to pull together communities, building bridges of understanding between those of different faiths and cultures, before his sudden death on July 2.

A memorial service held at the Telus Centre Sept. 30 was a testament to that high regard, as more than 300 people remembered this remarkable scholar for his towering intellect and power to inspire.

This video, shown at the service, captures the sentiments of many of Abu-Rabi’s friends and colleagues.
