"To Allah we belong, and to Him is our return". (Al-Baqarah 2:156)
It is with deep grief and sorrow that we annouce the passing of Brother Hashem Ahmed Shelah popularly known as “ABU AHMED” who passed away last night.
He was a close associate of Brother Goulade and known to our communities as the person who would be there 1st, to pick up the deceased and help with the burial rites at the cemetery.
Momineen are requested to remember the Marhum with Sura-e-Fateha, Namaz-e-Wahshat, and Namaaz Haddiye Mayyit. May Allah bless the Marhum with a place in Jannah, and may He grant patience and strength to the family so they may bear this loss.
Namaaz-e-Wahshat (night after burial):
In the first Raka'at, after reciting Surah al-Hamd, Ayatul Kursi should be recited once and in the second Raka'at, Surah al-Qadr should be recited 10 times after Surah-al-Hamd.
Namaaz-e-Haddiye Mayyit (any time):
In the first Raka'at, after reciting Surah al-Hamd, Surah Qadr should be recited. In the second Raka'at, after Surah al-Hamd recite Surah Kawther.
With Salaams and Du’as,
