Sheikh Awad, Imam of Masjid in Corvallis, Oregon passes away in a car accident

Our dear brother Sheikh Awad Garguri, Imam of Salman Al Farsi Islamic Center of Corvallis, has returned to Allah (SWT) today at 1 a.m. "Inna lilahi wa inna ilayhi raji'un" - Verily we belong to Allah and truly to Him shall we return.

Sheikh Awad, Microbiology Researcher, is married with four children. He was born to a well educated influential Libyan family and moved to the USA in the late 1970s. Sheikh Awad finished his Graduate studies at School of Microbiology at Oregon State University.

Sheikh Awad was a positive unifying force as well as a key factor in establishing the Salman Al Farsi Islamic Center and the Islamic Cemetary of Oregon. He was an active member of the Tablighi Jamaat and a well respected scholar. He was kind to his neighbors and was a father, friend and mentor to many international students.

Sheikh Awad, your loving face and positive attitude will be surely missed. Please make duaa (supplications) for our dear brother Sheikh Awad Garguri and his family. May Allah bless you and give you the highest ranking in Jannah, ameen.

Janazah Prayers today at Salman Al Farsi Islamic Center of Corvallis and burial will be at the Islamic Cemetary of Oregon at 1:30 pm.

Fore more information, please contact Dr. Mohammad Siala President of Salman Al Fari Islamic Center of Corvallis, 541.758.0329.

"O Allah, forgive our living and our deceased, our present and absent, our young and old, our men and women. 0 Allah, whomever You give life to, let him live on Islam and whomever You give death to, let him die on Imán." (Tirmidhi).

Police say tired driver crossed center line, killed oncoming motorist
Posted by Scott Bernard Nelson, The Oregonian July 18, 2008 08:09AM

Oregon State Police believe fatigue may have contributed to a crash on Highway 99W last night that killed a 49-year-old Corvallis man.

Shortly after midnight, a 2003 Chevrolet S10 pickup driven by 21-year-old Aaron James Veden of Corvallis was driving southbound on the highway near milepost 77 when it crossed the centerline into oncoming traffic.

Awad Mohamed Elgarguri, 49, driving with his 16-year-old son in their Geo Storm, reportedly attempted to elude Veden's truck. But the Chevy hit Elgarguri's vehicle on the driver's side, killing the Corvallis man. His son, Arubahr Elgarguri [correction: AbuBakr Elgarguri], was sent to Good Samaritan Hospital in Corvallis with minor injuries.

Police said northbound traffic was closed for about four hours while investigators and medical personnel handled the accident scene.

A statement released by Oregon State Police this morning said officers from Albany have not yet concluded their criminal investigation into the case. It said that "fatigue is a possible contributing factor in Veden's driving."

Veden, police said, was transported to Good Samaritan Hospital with what they characterized as non-life threatening injuries.

CORVALLIS -- A Muslim leader who worked to improve understanding of his religion in the Corvallis area has been killed in a traffic accident.

Awad Mohamed Elgarguri was heading home early Friday morning after a prayer session at a Corvallis mosque when a pickup truck crossed the center line and struck his car.

Oregon State Police say the 49-year-old Elgaguri died at the scene of the crash on Highway 99W. His 16-year-old son was recovering at a hospital and the pickup driver suffered nonlife-threatening injuries.

A longtime friend said Elgaguri was the imam for the mosque for the past 15 years and had worked to build bridges between people of different faiths.
