Al-Haj Safder Jaffer
The President of the World Federation of Khoja Shia Ithna-Asheri Muslim Communities
With all due respect and regard to you, I express my heartfelt condolences on the heavenly departure Wafat of the great philanthropic person Marhum Ashik Husain Muhammad Ali Rashid, the leading personality in the Khoja Shia Ithna-Asheri Muslim Communities in Kenya and U.K to you, all the respected members of The World Federation of Khoja Shia Ithna-Asheri Muslim Communities and his younger brother Haji Sajjad Muhammad Ali Rashid.
Marhum Ashik Husain Muhammad Ali Rashid during his blessed life rendered great services to Shias in different countries in particular to the deprived and most needy people in Africa. His noble, compassionate and sympathetic efforts will never be forgotten. I met him in person and Marhum was a noble, pious and philanthropic person. Certainly his noble deeds will be awarded immensely by Almighty Allah.
I pray to Almighty Allah to grant everlasting peace to the departed soul and he be mustered with the Holy Prophet (S.A.W.) and the Infallible Imams (A.S.). I also pray that Almighty Allah grant patience, endurance and peace of heart to all his family members. I hope his brother Haji Sajjad Muhammad Ali Rashid will carry on the noble philanthropic endeavors of his beloved Marhum brother. InshaAllah.
With all the good wishes,
