|The Osmani Family Foundation of Illinois (OFFI) was established to honor the memory of Hamid and Zubeda Osmani.
Hamid Ali Osmani was a distinguished lawyer, known for defending indigent clients. His wife, Zubeda Khatoon Osmani was among the first women to receive her PhD from Osmania University in Deccan, and was a Scientist at Regional Research Laboratory in Hyderabad, India.
Hamid and Zubeda were proud and dedicated parents of four children, Basith, Rashid, Arshad, and Humaira. The values they bequeathed include commitment to learning, strong work ethic, honesty and community welfare. OFFI will perpetuate these values for their benefit in the hereafter.
The surviving children believe in Islam, fear ALLAH, and love HIS prophets. They are a part of their prophets' "Ummath" (community of followers). As proud Muslim- Americans, based in Illinois, they intend to help the most deserving Muslim students attain academic and moral excellence by providing suitable financial assistance.
