Jawad Mansur Muhammad was born on April 24, 1987 at 6:02 pm after 42 hours of labor. It’s true what they say, for good things you have to wait.
He attended the Boston Renaissance Charter School, Lewenberg Middle School, and then Hyde Park High School. In his later years, he earned his GED, and then ultimately completed his studies at Ben Franklin Institute where he completed a certification of Proficiency in HVAC&R Technology.
Guided by that adage, it takes a village to raise a child, Jawad spent a lot of time with his Uncle Stephen, who he very closely resembled. While on outings with his uncle and aunt, people would often comment on them being such a nice looking family. He also spent a lot of his early years at Masjid Al Qur’an in Arabic and Islamic studies classes. Under the tutelage of Brothers Carson and Nathan, he learned various tools of the construction trade. These tools continued with him into adulthood.
Jawad was a man who was unafraid to be himself in any arena. His smile was contagious and he always knew how to make you smile. He was courageous and did not have any cowardice in his spirit. He was a protector to many and a supporter to all. He often encouraged others to follow their dreams and stay on the right path. If you ever needed anything, Jawad was always there.
As he son, he loved his parents and had a soft spot for his mother's words of wisdom, love, and devotion, and although he could get into trouble, he always appreciated the values she instilled in him. He was a protective brother who loved his siblings, especially his sisters. He always encouraged them to be kind people and pursue postive endeavors. Present at every graduation, his loud shoutouts to them could be heard regardless of the size of the auditorium.
Being a father was a joy to Jawad. His legacy will thrive with his children that will forever be infused with the passionate love he provided to all of those he loved.
He is survived by his children, Logan Muhammad, Zyien Muhammad, Bria Muhammad and Damari Henriquez. His mother, Mu’minah Sabree, his biological father, Aakhut Em Bak, and father aka Pops, R.O.A. Mahdi. His siblings, Yasin, Naimah, Taliah, Amirah and Sabriah, cousin/brother Milton Irving, special uncle, Stephen Irving, and Tarshi/Sabir family. He is also survived by his longtime girlfriend, Mildred Labissiere. He leaves a host of relatives including the McWhorter’s from Wisconsin, and the Irving, Wells, and Reed clans of Boston.
