Condolences to Shaikh Ahmad Ali and His Family

Allah the Most High declares,

Wherever you are, death will overtake you, even if you be in lofty towers.[1]

Everyone shall taste death. And only on the Day of Resurrection shall you be paid your wages in full. And whoever is removed away from the Fire and admitted to Paradise, he indeed is successful. The life of this world is only the enjoyment of deception.[2]

Death is a certainty of life, indeed life itself is teleological; man shall die and be questioned. It is in this sense that Allah informs humans by way of counsel and encouragement that it is only the believers who are successful, those who avoid the fire and secure admittance into paradise. When a believer dies it is a time of great tragedy and loss for the community, but those who submit to the will of Allah pay heed to what has been revealed,

And certainly, We shall test you with something of fear, hunger, loss of wealth, lives and fruits, but give glad tidings to the patient; those who when afflicted with calamity, say: from Allah do we come, and to him we shall return.”[3]

Shaikh Haitham al-Haddad and the entire Muslim Research and Development Foundation (MRDF) would like to extend their sincerest felt condolences to shaikh Ahmad Ali (and his family) whose wife passed on to her Lord. We beseech Allah to expand her grave, shower His infinite mercy upon her, to forgive her sins and grant her family patience. We also ask Allah to make this difficult time expiation for sins and the raising of rank in the sight of our Lord.

For those who do not know, shaikh Ahmad Ali is a well established da’ee based in Bradford, UK, who has dedicated his life and efforts to teaching both the young and old about their faith. He has been a leading figure in providing tarbiyyah to the young and we ask Allah to reward him and keep him steadfast.

    Truly it is the beloveds of God who taken upon their shoulders the calamities of the earth, for the lay Muslims would never keep their faith intact if they had to go through the same trials. May Allah have mercy on the wife of Shaykh Ahmed Ali, and fill her grave with immense light. Shaykh Ahmed Ali was truly an inspiration to me growing up, and I loved to hear his talks. No doubt, the foundation of such a man must have been his other half, and may she be rewarded in full.
    Was very sad to hear the news.

    ( I utilise the same words as the article). We beseech Allah to expand her grave, shower His infinite mercy upon her, to forgive her sins and grant her family patience. We also ask Allah to make this difficult time expiation for sins and the raising of rank in the sight of our Lord.
