Cover of book called Living with BlindnessLiving with Blindness: Lessons from the Life of Imran Sabir, is a book about “an exceptional young man. It is a tale of steadfastness in the face of adversity, discrimination and disadvantage. Imran succeeded in his struggle to find his faith and identity. His journey sets out many lessons about religion, society, communities and personal development.” It was written by Abdul Aziz Ahmed and published in 2009 by Islamic Texts for the Blind.

In the foreword of the book, American Muslim scholar Imam Zaid Shakir wrote:

Although he was afflicted with a wide array of crushing physical challenges that would rob him of his mobility, his eyesight, his speech, his teeth, and nearly his very breath, as he spent most of his life breathing through a tracheosmy tube, he could not be denied the ability to make a rich contribution to society during his short lifetime. Imran was able to overcome the challenges he faced physically, as a result of his battle with LOGIC Syndrome, by developing himself spiritually and intellectually. By so doing, he was able to tap into a deep, pure river of humanity that brought forth the character, talents, and an indomitable love of life that so deeply touched all who knew him.
