In a statement ISNA President Azhar Azeez said:

"Professor Ali Mazrui was a towering intellectual and academic who contributed greatly to Islamic and African studies. Our prayers and condolences go out to his family and loved ones during this unfortunate time. To Allah we belong and to Allah we all will return. "

Other ISNA officials offered their own memories and reflections on Dr. Mazrui:

ISNA's National Director of the Office of Interfaith and Community Alliances Dr. Sayyid Syeed said:

When Dr. Mazrui took the Chair in SUNY  Binghamton, we invited him to Washington DC and introduced him to the work of ISNA and its various off shoots like AMSS, IIIT, MSA etc. I spent day with him in familiarizing with our work. He very much appreciated the accomplishments and then  made himself available to address our various events and write for Horizons and AJISS   and other publications. He had a passion for getting American Muslims educated about American political system and getting them involved in the system. ISNA provided him a stage and a vibrant  forum."

ISNA Majlis Member Asad Ba-Yunus said, 
"Dr. Ali Mazrui was my professor for four classes, mentor, and friend to my late father and myself. He will be sorely missed."
