These are comments and letters from some of my students. The students range from elementary to college from my Islamic studies programs. Students’ names were abbreviated to hide their identities.

Abdikadir Ibrahim:
He is a great person who influences other people with great ideas. He also inspires others to be the best they can in this world. Abdikadir is a role model for many people; he is someone who works very hard, inspirational, patient, and encouraging. He is someone who enjoys solving problems other than math since I have met Abdikadir, he loves helping others find their way of understanding. He encourages us to correct our wrongs to right when we are headed in the wrong path, and he gets energetic to help the needy even though he is tired. Most of the adults give up on youth, but Abdikadir is a role model to our Muslim Youth, and he tries to turn the world to a better place for everyone. He makes us understand that mistakes happen, helps us work our problems out, and motivates us to love each other no matter what the circumstances are because we are ONE FAMILY around Abdikadir. Abdikadir shares the knowledge he has, gives all he got, and pushes us to smile, because one smile can be charity. Abdikadir is a brother, friend, a teacher, a husband and soon to be a father. He is just someone that cannot be forgotten because life is easy when he is around. H.M.

Abdikadir Ibrahim:
I personally believe that Abdikadir is a great teacher who wants to make a difference in this world. He is emotional, marvelous attitude, he is nice, and he motivates in learning our religion and also other education that we can gain. I have no idea of how to thank him because he is amazing and also one of the funniest teacher I have ever met. I do not think anyone would ever be able to replace him, because he is part of my life….F. E.

Abdikadir Ibrahim:
Words are easy to say, but it is not enough to describe Abdikadir. He is someone who wants to make a difference in this world, someone who you as a human can depend on, and someone you love immediately. I remember when I first came to the mosque, at first I hated him cause of how he was the center of attention. In the beginning I thought getting to know him would be a mistake, so I tried to keep my distance. I was scared of him, because he was loud and at the same time he had so much respect from others. I wondered how he managed that. Beginning of 2006, is when I took the initiative to get to know who he really was. I was afraid but as time went by, I started to get to know the real Abdikadir. I was wrong about judging him because he seemed to be someone whom I never met. The person I seen at first and the one who I spoke to turned to be two different people.The first night I came to the mosque, he offered to give me a ride home because I was ride less. Someone I don’t know very well to offer to take me home amazed me. I was scared to the fullest, but luckily my friends came with me. I was new in Minneapolis so I didn’t know the directions to my house but he was patient with me. I asked him if I could join the Islamic School. He said to be there 8 sharp, but I came very late and he was patient with me once again. Abdikadir is my teacher, a brother to most people, and a leader to the community. He inspired me in many ways including my education. Abdikadir has motivated me in gaining my self-esteem and has touched my heart in a way that no one else has. He is someone that cares so much for others, even though he knows he is putting his life at a risk. This guy has helped me more than my own family, sometimes people will be there for you when you are happy, but Abdikadir tries to find someone who is struggling so he can find away for them to get out of the hardship. He gives us advices to correct our mistakes and he sits with us individually to see our point of view. I am truly and happily proud to have someone as amazing as him to be my teacher, brother and my best friend. He is honest, high self-esteem, intelligent, kind, amazing, energetic, high-quality, first-rate, superior, excellent, outstanding, brilliant, convincing, tremendous, sweet, awesome, admirable, and someone who apologies for his mistake. He is honorable and a leader. I think it takes a strong person to care for someone else who might even be a stranger to the world. Abdikadir doesn’t care for what others say; all he cares about is what God thinks of him and what he thinks of himself. I don’t think I would want anything in this world but his friendship, because knowing you have a friend like him can be your strength to overcome any obstacles you come across. He touched and inspired me in ways that I think no other human can. He will soon become a father to young a child and I am proud to say that I could never replace him for anything in this world. I remember a time he said stay strong then nothing and no one could harm you, because no one can do anything to you unless you let them. Not only did he change other’s lives, but he made a difference in his life too. He changed his life-style around others, his attitude, and the respect he has for others. He also learned many things from others, not only did we learn from him but we also taught him things about life. He has seen us grow from being a selfish kids/students to more mature students who now run a youth organization at the Mosque. Seeing us grow and thinking like people who want to make a difference not only in our lives but the world made him proud of us and that everything he has been working on for years does not go to a waste. On behalf of SSU (Salahudin Student Union) and behalf of the mosque we are proudly glad to say congratulation for his hard work. One thing I have learned from him is to never give up in something that you love. If it is worth fighting for then continue until you get to your destination. I don’t want to say much, but I think this is enough description of Abdikadir Ibrahim. If there were more teachers like him in this world, I believe education would be more fun and interesting. Again am proud to be his student, and hopefully someday I will give back all the favors he has done for me. I never said, it will be easy, but I will try my best. L. O.

Abdikadir Ibrahim:
He is our legend; he is the only man that give people advise. He is young man who always does great deeds. In my whole life I didn’t see a man like him who always kind and respectful. When it comes to youth he always make us happy. Even though we clean the mosque Mashallah, I like the way. He encourages people. When people listen his words they forget everything. He listens to our issues. I work with him he is a good teacher. When he gets mad he yells. He socializes with us. He shares with us. He doesn’t ignore people. God bless him Mr. Abdikadir is the best man; he gives many advises to youth. The day he is not at dugsi (Islamic School) everyone feels sad and bored. He even helped the elders. He encourages the young people. He is our teacher and he is a great leader. I always respect him as a father. Thank You and God bless you. N. H.

Abdikadir Ibrahim:
A teacher who is penitent for the youth to make them developed their religious Skills and their manners in their life. My teacher is not just a teacher but he is an indescribable person who is full with respect, humility. My teacher, Abdikidir, is my best friend, my teacher, my brother, he is my backbone. Three ways to describe him are teacher, hopeful, and peaceful. In my life I have met many different kinds of teachers from a lot different countries such as Libya, Egypt, and U.S. these teachers are none alike to my teacher, Abdikidir, I consider him one of the best teachers in every situation. He is not just a teacher to many students, but he is like a father to me and others too. When he teaches he make sure we understand what we are learning and he makes us do them in real life action. He is great with any subject wither that is religion or other Education. Hope with youth hope for the youth hope for youth to become leaders and something in their lives. I have never seen such a person who is penitent for the youth willing to give his to time and his wealth and health, and his Education to us at the same time. Abdikadir is a peaceful teacher with his students; peaceful person with its community; peaceful leader with his people. He is not only peaceful but peaceful with caring and nurturing for others such as elders, Youths and etc. and the important part is developing peaceful youths who can change this world with a peaceful manners, excellent training from a wonderful teacher and brother who is called Abdikdir Ibrahim. In this world I have experience a lot and I want to many different regions and been in different schools with different teachers, but I have never seen such a beautiful minded teacher who is hopeful, and peaceful, and teacher who believe in you to be an agent of change and bring a change.

Macalin [teacher] Abdikadir Ibrahim – Foot Steps …. To Follow:
Describing itself is an essence which takes much detail and devotion especially to the object being described. To begin with my profound teacher, a young adult who in reality really has very few flaws is by far the most incredible person I have met in my entire life. Throughout my life time growing up I have spent a lot of time with this great teacher and each time I encounter another meeting with him I do not want to even be away from his sight for merely a few minutes. My teacher is man with a broad range of knowledge who uses this knowledge in the most sophisticated way I have ever been in contact. When you are around him you feel like you can literally be something great, do something great, and even create something great. His way of explaining lessons is a gentle manner that is understandable for any age range, it’s as if he was born to teach and mentor young people. His voice and communication seems to me many times that of a person who has been and can relate to my situation in life. A great thing that he is well known for is that no matter what, he puts others before himself, sometimes he leaves and sacrifices important things for him just to make someone’s day. Each and every day I think about how a person can wake up only to live with a purpose. His words always have a meaning and each time we have a conversation I swear I can’t wait for the next. Around him people can be themselves and they don’t need to act in a special way to please him because nothing bothers him, he is easy going and always looking for a way to inspire someone. Whether you are 90 years old or 7 years old if you have something to say he will listen to you fully just like he would listen to any other important person in his life. He makes you feel as if what you are saying is indeed important even if it is not he will never let you down, around him you will never even think about failure. His passion for the things he does are glittering in his eyes and he is not afraid to stand out from the crowd. He is different but indeed his confidence and self esteem remind me of an overflowing cup that cannot hold water anymore but still continuous to overflow. His devotion to things whether that be students, teaching, school, organization and so on are clearly defined for him and no matter what those are his first priority. As for his kindness, it has no end and sometimes his kindness can be mistaken for his generosity. He is a humble person many times he will tell you that you are actually better then him and that he is actually in the lower level. He pays meticulous attention to details and uses all of his skills very well and thoroughly. He believes in having an identity and preserves the entire concept of belonging to Organization. You will at many times see him with the highest hopes a person can have. The amount of respect he gives one is equal to an ocean and even if you do not deserve this respect he still will give it to you. He instills in everyone’s heart that they can be part of the change, everyone to him even a homeless person on the street can add and give meaning to the world. Many times you will hear him stress the importance of education and writing in particular. He will assist you in any way if you happen to fall on your way up the education ladder. His teachings are surrounded by examples and always so understandable clear and never vague, he will make you enjoy the subject you hate or are bad at the most just because of the way he teaches it. He is not looking for a certain name or power but only for us as individuals to succeed. No matter the situation in his life he is always clam and cool. He brings people together and in many ways he is like a connector. He is an advocate for creating brotherhood and sisterhood in a balanced way. He will never tell you to be a certain way or do a certain thing instead he will teach you what he knows and then let you make the conclusion. The best thing I have ever noticed about my teacher is that he treats everyone according to their level of treatment, in other words he believes in honor: those who honor their values and always puts those people first. He is not afraid to speak the truth not to show himself as he is. He is proud of where he comes from and who he is representing. He is a religious man with a set identity which helps you to love your religion. Everything he does has a big meaning and always brings a benefit to Islam. He is a best friend and always understands where I am coming from; he does not tell me what I want to hear but what I need to hear. He advices me according to that which is helpful for me and he is not afraid to tell me what is wrong and right. When he sees that something is wrong you won’t hear him complain but instead look for a way to change that wrong. He is a person who is one for a kind truly you will not see many people like him in this world. He is a brother, friend, teacher, and a parent and to top that off he is at best in each role. He is the kind of person who will greet you with open arms and he gives those around him a fair chance. Sometimes he believes in you more then you believe in yourself. He is a favorite to many people and when he enters a room the setting and atmosphere literally change in such a superior way. Describing my teacher is a task that cannot be done in just writing and in order for one to ever understand my words they will need to actually meet him. There really is no word that can fulfill his meaning. He is an ambitious person who will really and truly give you the insight to change and reshape your life he is a foot step to follow. He is ultimately INCREDIABLE. F. A.

Abdikadir is a teacher, leader, husband, and soon to be a father . He is the most amazing human being I have seen in my life, he is very inspirational, and he is a man who wants to change the world and bring back hopes and dreams that were lost. As a teacher he helps me understand the world and truly comprehend the beauty and the wonder of everything I see and become a better person with each discovery. As a teacher, Abdikadir points our minds and guides our thought. He shares his achievements and advices our faults, he is very encouraging and patient. He is someone who sees his potential and believes the best in others. Abdikadir doesn’t only want to change a city or a country but he wants to change the world where hope has become a universal liar. He helps me understand the world so I can make better choices in my life on the future because of him I believe I can do something for the world. The reason is because of him I believe in myself and I know the meaning of respect, equality, and what it means to be a human being, and also the purpose in life. I don’t have to look for a dictionary to define amazing when I have a teacher like Abdikadir because of him I am not afraid to be a leader where hopes are lost and dreams are caged. He is someone who knows knowledge is contagious and he is ready to face anything in this world. His smartness infected me and I am proud of it and I am proud to say he is my teacher. ******* I. H.

He is a perfect example for a teacher. I learn a lot from and I want to continue learning from him, I learn things from the religion from him, how to become a better speaker and how time is valuable.
