[002:156] Surely we are Allah’s and to Him we shall surely return

As-Sallamu-Alaykom my dear brothers and sisters

As I am sure you are all aware of, one of our great leaders within the Islamic and Arab world Sayyed Muhammad Hussein Fadlullah (May Allah grant him mercy) has passed away and returned unto his lord.

Undoubtedly this is a difficult time for many, for the Sayyed stood for many things, including his religion, courage, the defence of many and arguably the most important of all intellectual honesty.

His life truly has been an inspiration to many and though he has returned back to the Lord of the worlds, his works, which are ample, will still be of great use and relevance to the Muslims who are mourning the death of this irreplaceable man.

I hope that we all keep him in our prayers, and that we emulate him in his action of gaining and seeking knowledge.
We ask Allah (subhunu wa ta’la) to grant his mercy upon the Sayyed, and also to all of the faithful. And we also ask the Most Merciful to allow us to serve with the Imam of our time.

As-Sallamu-Alaykom my dear brothers and sisters
