Ronald Wilson Reagan [1911 - 2004] died after a ten-year battle with the mind-destroying illness of Alzheimer's disease.
Mr. Reagan dominated the American political scene as Governor of California from 1966 to 1975 and then as President from 1980 to 1988.
Mr. Reagan will be remembered as the man who defeated communism and restored American confidence. But yet his tenure will be subject to vicissitudes of historical judgment. There are those who will remember him as a historic president and there are some who will vilify Mr. Reagan form his role in the Iran-Contra scandal to plunging the nation into its worst fiscal deficit.
No matter what our personal feelings may be about the international politics or domestic Reaganomics of the late president, Islamic ethics tell us not to speak ill of those who have passed away.
We commiserate with our fellow citizens on the passing away of Ronald Reagan, 40th president of the United States. We send our condolences to Mrs. Nancy Reagan and all his family members. We pray that may they be blessed with patience and perseverance to overcome this difficult time.
We pray that may God make the US a beacon for peace and justice around the world. We pray that may God give the present and future leaders of this nation the courage and wisdom to eliminate all forms of oppression, poverty, racism, illness, and injustice.
