Message of condolence of Islamic Emirate concerning the passing away of a renowned scholar of the Islamic world Mawlana Dr Sher Ali Khan
(may Allah have mercy on him)
It has been learnt with deep sadness that a great custodian of Islamic sciences, Sheikhul Quran wal Hadith, teacher to thousands of students of knowledge and a profound supporter of Mujahideen, Hazrat Mawlana Dr. Sher Ali Shah (may Allah have mercy on him) has passed away from this transient world to the everlasting realm, surely to Allah we belong and to Him shall we return.
The passing away of Sheikh Sahib (may Allah have mercy on him) is a great incorrigible loss for the Muslims of the Islamic world generally and for the fields of Knowledge, Preaching and Jihad specifically.
The late Sheikh Sahib (may Allah have mercy on him) did not merely consider chairing the teachings of Quran and Prophetic Ahadith, preaching, supporting Jihad and reform as his religious duty throughout his entire blessed life but he also rendered unparalleled services in all of these fields. And the Almighty Allah similarly bestowed upon him a great knowledgeable status throughout the region.
The late Sheikh Sahib was a staunch backer of the both great Jihads of Afghanistan and had defended and supported the Jihadi claim of the Afghan Mujahid nation from the initial years of the Islamic Emirate.
The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan shares in this great grief of parting away of the late Sheikh Sahib alongside his family, Islamic world’s centers of knowledge, respected scholars, late Sheikh Sahib’s students and especially with heads, teachers and students of prestigious center of knowledge ‘Darul Uloom Haqqania’ as well as with all the Muslim masses of Afghanistan and Pakistan. It also extends its heartfelt condolences to all the mentioned sides on this occasion of the passing away of Sheikh Sahib.
May the Almighty Allah accept all the services of the late Sheikh Sahib in His court and grant him Jannatul Firdous (Highest Paradise), Ameen.
Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan
