Condolence “And certainly, We shall test you with something of fear, hunger, loss of wealth, lives and fruits, but give glad tidings to As-Sãbirun (the patient). Those who, when afflicted with calamity, say :“Truly, to Allah we belong and truly, to Him we shall return”.They are those on whom are the blessings from their Lord, and they are those who recieve His mercy, and it is they who are the guided ones. ” In consonance to these verses, we are afflicted at Union of African Muslim Scholars with a great loss; the death of Dr Yahya Abdullahi Ahmad, a great scholar who was the Head of Planning and Supervision Committee of the Union; Head of Local Committee of Chad branch of the Union and also the founder of Ar-Rashad Foundation.
