Joe Getz passed away on 4 November He matriculated in and went on to study Medicine at the University of the Witwatersrand, obtaining his degree in Whilst working at the Johannesburg General Hospital, he became one of the first doctors in the country to treat infections with the then new antibiotic, penicillin.
After his internship and hospital medical officer positions, he went into private practice in Jeppe Street, Johannesburg, when it was the "Harley Street" of South Africa, establishing a very successful solo practice, and later, partnership practice. He is remembered as a compassionate doctor, well-read, possessing excellent diagnostic skills. He held senior posts at Coronation and Baragwaneth, both of which were teaching hospitals affiliated to the University of the Witwatersrand Medical School.
In recognition of his service to the university he was appointed an Associate Professor of Surgery in David sat on school management committees as well as being elected president of the Governing Body of the Parkview-Greenside Synagogue in Johannesburg. In the very earliest days of his practice, he hired a driver to drive him from Bethal to his patientsin outlying areas so that he could study in the car for the duration of the journey. He remained evercommittedto his twin passions: to learn and to teach.
Riaz is also a medical doctor. The thesis he was referring to was his second doctorate, a D. Dr Karim had previously obtained, at the age of 70, a PhD from the University of Cape Town fora thesis on the mystical nature of a very early Cape Muslim ritual called the Ratib, which hepostulated helped to preserve Islam in South Africa, when the practice of Islam as a religion waspunishable by death. The thesis deduces that the zikr chanted by the participants producesendorphins that transform their consciousness, thus protecting them from the physical injury theyappear to be trying to inflict on themselves during the performance.
In his lifetime, Dr. Karim attended numerous conferences all over the world: from aninternational conference on education in Mecca, to conferences on various aspectsof psychology, public health, neuro-biology and medicine, including the medicine of the Propheton whom be peace - known as "Tib-un Nabawi". He played a significant role in renewing anawareness of Prophetic medicine both in South Africa, at the conferences of the Islamic MedicalAssociation of South Africa, and abroad.
Karim was the first black radio ham in the country ZS6VQ. He had a passion forelectronics and in his student days studying for his Science and Medical degrees built his owntape recorder. He also made a unique feature film on Hajj in with the permission of theSaudi authorities, at a time when such movie-making was not only unheard of but thevery taking of photographs in Mecca was forbidden.
He had a love of photography anddeveloped his own photographs — this before the time of digital or instant photography. He wasproficient in Arabic, Urdu, English and Afrikaans. He served as the chairperson of the Bethal Muslim Jamaat for over thirty years, helpingdisadvantaged students by teaching them how to type and use computers, and then finding themjobs.
Karim was instrumental in having a community clinic built in Mzinoni Township, inBethal, near his home. He had great compassion not only for the young but also for the old; not only for men but alsofor women, who, he knew, are often marginalised and discriminated against, both in their localcommunities and within society at large. This was a continuation inthe struggle for justice that in his early adulthood had resulted in his being imprisoned for ninetydays in solitary confinement. But it was his medical knowledge and his passion for learning that were most extraordinary.
Karim not only had an incredible ability to diagnose illnesses, but because of his deepunderstanding of medicine and the human body and human soul he was able to offer hismostly-poor patients very cheap, yet possibly more effective medication, than that whichmight have been prescribed by others. As for his desire for knowledge, there is no wayto describe his passion adequately. He read relentlessly in his large library, adding more andmore books to his collection over the years — books lie sprawling on shelves, work-tops, tablesand on the floor.
And it was easy to see if the books had been read for he made prolific notes inthem as he went along. Karim stumbled over his first and only real illness. Knowing his radiant mind, it was not easyto recognize that his body was human after all.
Perhaps he had given too much to his work andso much of his life to others that when he needed some reserve of energy to fight a new battle theenergy was no longer there. He was a teacher, a mentor, a friend, a doctor, and a scholar - ahuman being. But most of all, perhaps unknown even to himself, he was a unique Islamicmissionary. He played rugby for Transvaal and Scotland, playing play nine internationals for Scotland as a lock or wing forward in and He was a founder member of the South African Barbarians and was in charge of the team when it toured Britain in He was a successful businessman, who started up his own engineering firm in Johannesburg on his return from Britain in the late s.
