Message from the Chairman of Africa Federation
“The sad news of the death of this great Islamic Scholar was received by us in Africa with deep grief and sorrow. Maulana was an effective and eloquent public speaker with excellent oratory power, similarly he possessed vast knowledge of religion of Islam, the Madh’ab of Ahlulbayt (‘A) and long experience in secular matters which made him a popular and inspirational speaker amongst Muslims and non-Muslims in India and in other parts of the world where he lectured. Maulana Kalbe Sadiq Saheb was a role model and admired by many for his vast knowledge, simplicity and openness. He believed in Unity, Harmony and promoted education; especially for the underprivileged children in India. His death leaves behind a big vacuum in the community which shall be very difficult to fill. Maulana was well known personality in many parts of Africa and kept cordial relationships with Africa Federation and with our Tabligh Institutions. On behalf of all of us from Africa Federation, we extend our heartfelt condolences to the family, friends and colleagues of Maulana during this difficult time of the bereavement, we pray to Allah (s.w.t.) to shower His mercy upon him and grant him high status in the proximity of Ahlulbayt (‘A), Ameen.”
