Hasan Raza was my
batch mate (1964-1969) at Petaro. He was always a
very humble, soft spoken and serious person. He
was caring and would always try to be helpful to
Petaro, Hasan Raza graduated as an electrical
engineer from NED in 1974.
Hasan Raza was
settled in the UAE for the past over 2 decades. He
worked for different engineering consulting
companies and contracting companies and was posted
in various cities of the UAE including Abu Dhabi,
Alain, Fujairah, Dubai and Sharjah. His last
position was as Senior Electrical Engineer with
Hyder Consulting in Dubai.
I met Hasan Raza a
few times during my visits to the UAE. He would
always take time out from his work or rest to come
and meet me for old times sake.
A couple of weeks
before his death, he suffered a brain stroke and
was hospitalized. After treatment, he was back
home and was leading a normal life. On his last
night, he went to bed and never woke up. When his
wife and children saw that he had not gotten up
for Fajr prayers as he would do usually, they
found that he had already passed away.
May Allah grant him
It is an honour for
me to have been the batch mate of Hasan Raza.
