Unus Mohamed OMARALI
By Darryl DEAN, Wednesday, December 14, 2005, Page A24
Physician, devout Muslim, community leader. Born November 21, 1927, in Charlieville, Trinidad. Died April 6 in Toronto of a heart attack, aged 77.
Dr. OMARALI, the "World's Greatest Marriage Officer," according to a plaque that he kept on his desk, knew the value of laughter, and his jovial disposition seemed to have had a therapeutic effect on many who met him.
But behind his laughter was a serious commitment to his profession and community.
He had been a physician for half a century and the news of his passing evoked fond memories of a man simply called "Doc" by many of his patients, who came from diverse communities in multicultural Toronto. He had taken a special interest in new Canadians and empathized with the plight of refugees.
And for thousands who fled from Trinidad and Tobago, Guyana and other Commonwealth Caribbean countries claiming refugee status in Canada, he became an advocate.
Not only did he speak out on behalf of these new arrivals but he provided free medical services to many of those in need.
Dr. OMARALI had set his sights on a career as a doctor at an early age.
In 1948, after teaching at Naparima College, the local high school from which he graduated, he left Trinidad for Canada to enter the University of Saskatchewan. He later moved to Ireland to attend medical school.
He qualified in medicine in 1955 and, after completing his internship at Beth-El Hospital in New York, he returned to Trinidad, where he worked in the ear, nose and throat clinic at the San Fernando General Hospital.
In 1957, he went to England to further his studies in laryngology and otology and, on his return to Trinidad, went into private practice.
I got to know "Doc" in the late 1960s after he had relocated to Canada and established a family practice in Toronto. I went to see him on the recommendation of a friend who told me that he was the kind of doctor with whom I would be comfortable: "caring and willing to listen."
I remember my first visit to Dr. OMARALI's office. There were few empty chairs in the waiting room and I spent a lot of time leafing through magazines before my name was called.
After my checkup, Dr. OMARALI listened to my stories and even laughed at my jokes.
Over the years we chatted about a wide range of subjects: from personal medical matters to controversial topics such as politics and religion. He was a devout Muslim who was able to maintain friendly dialogue with non-Muslims.
Although he spent long hours at his office, he found time for community service and religious activities. He received several awards for community work with various organizations, including a leadership role with the Lions Club.
Dr. OMARALI was one of the elders in the Muslim community responsible for the purchase of a church in Toronto's west end, which was transformed into a mosque -- the Jami Masjid.
"Doc" officiated at hundreds of weddings in Ontario. His widow, Phirosa, recalled that he found great joy in marrying people.
The self-styled "World's Greatest Marriage Officer" was the father of three: two sons, Haidar and Iqbal, and a daughter, Zenobia, and grandfather to five.
When he retired in the 1979, I missed his laughter and the lively chats we used to have. By then his health was failing and he had to undergo heart surgery and a tracheotomy affected his speech.
Patients will remember "Doc" as a man who took time to listen but was not afraid to speak out for causes.
Darryl was a patient of Dr. OMARALI.
