A Loss of A Great Gem

Hazrat Sufi Muhammad Abdullah Khan Sahib Naqshbandi
Returned to his Lord

With sorrow and patience, we announce the death of a great Man of Allah, and a Sufi Master, a gem of wisdom and a spring of guidance.

A man who served Muslims in the UK for and promoted Sunni Islam and sufism relentlessly for over 50 years.

He is Hazrat Sufi Muhammad Abdullah Khan Sahib Naqshbandi who died today at the age of 92.

While we offer our condolences to his family and his murids in Birmingham and in Pakistan, we pray that Allah, Most Generous, envelop him with His infinite Mercy and raise him to the highest ranks in the Garden.

As being unable to travel to the UK to attend his funeral in person, I call upon all our students to represent us in his funeral and offer condolences on our behalf.
