INNA LILLAHI WA INNA ILAYHI RAJEEUN  (Holy Qur'an, Surah Al Baqarah, 2:156)

We have received with deep sorrow and grief the sad news of the passing away of the Chief Mufti of Tanzania, Alhaj Sheikh Issa Shabani Simba on Monday 15th June 2015 in Dar-es-Salaam and will be buried today Tuesday 16th June 2015 in Shinyanga after Asr Prayers.

Alhaj Sibtain Meghjee, Sheikh Hashim Ramadhan and Seyed Ameer Abbas Baqri will attend the Funeral in Shinyanga and represent the Bilal Muslim Mission of Tanzania.
A delegation from the BMM Tanzania head office comprising of various Sheikhs will attend the special prayers for the soul of Sheikh Simba to be held this morning at the National Muslim Council, Bakwata headquarters in Dar es Salaam.
Community members are requested to pay their last respects to the deceased in Dar es Salaam. Also, community members are requested to attend Khitma sessions that will be organised within their regions and various Mosques.
The passing away of Chief Mufti of Tanzania is a big loss not only to his dear and near ones but to the entire Muslim Community in Tanzania and, sadly, his wise counsel will be missed by many.
We pray to Allah (SWT) to grant Marhum maghferat and rest his soul in eternal peace, and may He by His infinite mercy grant his family members solace and strength to bear this great loss.
Please let us remember Marhum in our prayers and recite Sura-e-Fateha to bless his soul.

The 76th Supreme Council Session of the Africa Federation was held on 1st and 2nd May 2015 In Mombasa Kenya. By the grace of Allah (swt) the meeting was well attended, the deliberations and discussions were fruitful and forward looking.

Four resolutions were presented by the AFED Secretariat with a 30-day notice to all Jamaats, and one was proposed from the floor. All five Resolutions were passed by the councilors from Member Jamaats.

One observer of the meeting aptly put it: “All the resolutions that were passed were momentous in their impact on the community, and it is no surprise that little debate was required in all the resolutions, as they were all largely directed towards progress and governance of our community in Africa.”

Welcoming the Holy Month of Ramadhan
Message from the Chairman of the Africa Federation,
Alhaj Anwarali R. Dharamsi

In the Name of Allah; the Most Compassionate, the Most Merciful

O Allah: (please do) help us observe fasting in this month; and guide us to practice the acts of worship (perfectly); and grant us vigor to offer prayers; and do not preclude us from reciting (the Holy Qur'an); and make easy for us to give alms (Sadkah).

O Allah: (please) do not inflict us with fatigue, tiredness, ailment, or injury.  O Allah: (please do) grant us the food with which we break our fasting from Your sustenance that is legally gotten.

(Dua for the 1st Night of Ramadhan)
