Journalist Ahmed Jaafar said: “We belong to God and to Him we shall return. This morning, the respected, polite and calm colleague, Mr. Abu Dawood, moved together. We have been together for several years and separated us abroad for the sake of work, but the friendship and connection remained since my return until recently, before Corona kidnapped him and hurt us as it hurt us a few days ago. On the death of our colleague Sobhi Behairy, may God give patience to his family and relatives, especially our colleague, Mrs. Harmah, Dr. Laila Bayoumi. The epidemic and the affliction, Lord, O Lord, have mercy on him with a wide mercy and honor him, Lord, bring him down with your forgiveness and generosity, O Most Generous of Hosts, Lord.

Journalist Amer Shamakh added pictures that a young man had collected in the late Abu Daoud when they were working in Liwa al-Islam magazine, and said, “May God have mercy on you, Mr. Abu Dawood. Two pictures I found in my archives, they are thirty-one years old, in the summer of 1990, in Liwa al-Islam magazine, which we associate with, and they renewed the afflictions. And they confirmed the palace of the world, and that one day soon we will be part of the past, we ask God for safety.

Sobhi Behairy.. the bold smile

Al-Shaab newspaper journalist Hussain Al-Adawi added: “A new leaf fell from the tree of Al-Shaab newspaper, as he moved next to his Lord, my beloved brother, the honourable, respected and polite Mr. Abu Dawood. We are still bandaging our wounds for the separation of Subhi Bahiri until we suffer a new separation, we ask God Almighty in His highness to forgive. He has mercy on him, heals him, pardons him, expands his entrance, honors his abode, and resides in the highest paradise of Paradise, and joins us in him on complete faith.”

As for the journalist in Akhbar Al-Youm, Hazem Hosni, he said: “I did not deal directly with our journalist colleague, Mr. Subhi Bahiri, but through our few discussions on Facebook, I felt that he is a journalist with a position like most colleagues in Al-Shaab newspaper. May God have mercy on Mr. Sobhi and grant him peace and inspire his family And his friends and colleagues patience and solace.”

On November 5, the last thing Sobhi Bahiri wrote on his account was: “My family, brothers and friends, God bless you. I am in critical health conditions and I cannot communicate via phone, Facebook or Messenger. Do not forget me in your prayers.”
