Honoring the late Dr. Laleh Bakhtiar: Her Horse on High, Her Flag Unfurled, She Rode Away to Right the World
"Laleh Bakhtiar, an Islamic and Sufi scholar and the first American Muslim women to produce a translation of the Quran, passed away peacefully on Sunday October 18, 2020 in Chicago, from Myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS), a rare blood disorder. She was 82." Dr. Bakhtiar wasn't only a Let's Care interviewee but was so much more. She was bold, and stood up for positive impact she believed in -- regardless of the risk. Even in her passing, the world is left with countless artifacts of her impact -- including 25 published books about Islam, Sufism, and more, and numerous interviews, videos, and storytelling pieces by a variety of outlets and storytellers, including her daughter Davar Ardalan (NPR, SecondMuse, White House Presidential Innovation Fellows, National Geographic). Laleh has a legacy like no other, and it will continue to live on and change lives far beyond her passing -- through her family and those who loved her and through all she touched. Read "Courage, Temperance, Justice and the Enduring Wisdom of the late Scholar Laleh Bakhtiar" by Davar Ardalan Read "Trying to digest the grief-soaked digital breadcrumbs" by Matt Scott For more on Let's Care, visit www.lets.care.
