A great leader remembered for his farsighted vision, wisdom and intellect; a selfless, devoted and sincere social worker of the Community.

Chairman AFED – 1958/1964

A tribute by the Chairman of Africa Federation, Alhaj Anwarali Dharamsi on the occasion of the 50th Anniversary of the death of “Mohsin-e-Qawm” Alhaj Ebrahim Hussein Shariff Dewji.

The sadness of the news of the sudden passing away of Al Hajj Ebrahim Hussein Sheriff Dewji on 9th January, 1964 in Zanzibar at a young age while in the position of the Chairmanship of AFED still echoes up to this day in the minds of many who knew him, it was a moment of great sadness and shock across the Shia Ithna-Asheri community in Africa, and beyond its borders.

As I read through in the Africa Federation Samachar of May, 1964, the accolades and tributes written by various leaders, friends and others from within and outside our community following his sudden death, I realize how great, humble and eminent this young devotee of the community was. He lived a short life but left magnificent and indelible footprints on the path of the history of our community in Africa and in the Federation of Khoja Shia Ithna-Asheri Jamaats of Africa.

In his second paper - Jihad, Islam and Terrorism, Sheikh Stambuli defined Jihad in its right context. He categorized Jihad in two forms; major and minor jihad as described by the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.w). He described major Jihad as striving to remain on the right path. Minor jihad he said is to fight in defense.

Kilwa Visit 1

Kilwa Visit 2Kilwa is a coastal District located about 330 Kms to the south of Dar es Salaam; it is one of the 6 districts of the Lindi Region of Tanzania. Kilwa is divided into three different towns: Kilwa Kivinje, Kilwa Masoko and Kilwa Kisiwani with Songo Mnara and Sanje Ya Kiti. The population of Kilwa is about 180,000; most of them live in poor conditions.

In the early 16th century, Vasco da Gama extorted tribute from the wealthy Islamic state, but not soon after, another Portuguese force commanded by D. Francisco de Almeida took control of the island in (1505) after besieging it, It remained in Portuguese hands until 1512, when an Arab mercenary captured Kilwa and expelled the Portuguese. The city regained some of its earlier prosperity, but in 1784 it came under the rule of the Omani rulers of Zanzibar. After the Omani conquest, the French built and manned a fort at the northern tip of the island, but the city itself was abandoned in the 1840s. It was later part of the colony of German East Africa from 1886 to 1918.  

Kilwa it is bordered to the North by the Pwani Region, to the East by the Indian Ocean, to the South by the Lindi Rural District and to the West by the Liwale District. Kilwa Kivinje was the site of the German's southern administrative headquarters in the late 19th Century. The old Boma and German market hall are from this colonial period. There is still a good number of old colonial buildings and crumbling remains of ancient Omani buildings and mosques.
