Inna Lillaah wa inna Ilayhi Raji’oon.
With deep sorrow and submission, the Alawi Husayni Ninowi Zawiyah South Africa and Madina-Institute SA announces with pain in the heart and tears in the eyes the passing away of one of its Shuyukh and pillars; the pious, selfless, faithful, beautiful Shaykh Sayyidina Abd Al-Rasheed Brown, may Allah Ta’ala shower Him with His Mercies and envelope Him with His special Care and Love. Sayyidi Shaykh Abd Al-Rasheed was amongst “Ahlul Allah” who worked hard and took all difficulties with a smile. Sayyidi Shaykh Abd Al-Rasheed touched the hearts of all seekers at the Zawiyah, and students at Madina Institute. Filled with simplicity, Adab, and love for Allah, His Messenger, Ahlul Bayt, Sahaba, and Awliya; Sayyidi Shaykh Abd Al-Rasheed’s light will be missed dearly. He was not just a son of the Zawiyah, but beloved to all young and old, with his pleasant personality and quickly forgiving nature.
Please make Du’a and give Sadaqah on the blessed soul of Sayyidi Abd Al-Rasheed Brown (may Allah Ta’ala sanctify his soul). Indeed the departure of such people is a sign of Qiyamah. May Allah Ta’ala raise the levels of Sayyidi Shaykh Abd Al-Rasheed Brown to the highest levels in Jannah, assemble him at the Basin with Sayyidina Rasoolillaah, sallallah alayhi wa aalihi wa sallam, and resurrect him with the household of the Prophet, he loved so much. If people could ordain sainthood (Walaya of Allah) then Sidi Abd Al-Rasheed Brown was definitely be one. Fi Amaanillaah Sayyidi Abd Al-Rasheed Brown
