Prof. Aly Mishal, MD FACP, Consultant Endocrinologist & Chairman Ethics Committee, Islamic Hospital, Amman, Jordan passed away recently. He was Executive Director and Past President of Federation of Islamic Medical Associations (FIMA), Chief of Staff, Islamic Hospital Lebanon.

He was the driving force of the Islamic Movement, one of the founders of Federation of Islamic Medical Association (FIMA), a truly inspirational figure. Someone who reserved every ounce of his energy for the sake of education, welfare, brotherhood. A one-man-institution, he was always there whenever you call him to a conference, an educational moot, a welfare project, be it in South Africa, Indonesia, US, Kenya or Pakistan. With bent back and aging knees there was a never-say-no attitude and smile even after hours of long journeys.

He was keynote speaker in thematic sessions in three of the PIMA's biennial conferences apart from other programs. He was a family member of his patients, a mentor of thousands of doctors, an academician, a scientist, writer, a messiah in the true sense. An ardent practicing Muslim, he did all that he could to please his Lord. Chairman of the Islamic Hospital, Jordan and Professor of Endocrinology, Chief Editor of FIMA year books and FIMA journal, Prof Aly Mishal was a busy person to the time of his last short illness. May his legacy continue and flourish through his pupils and loving followers. May Allah grant him in highest place in Jannah. Ameen To Allah we belong.
