It is with great sadness that we inform you of the death of Professor Azam who passed away on the day of Jumuah after a lifetime of sacrifice and dedication to his Lord and Islam. Inna lillah wa inna ilayhi rajiun.The date is October 23 2014. He is survived by his wife, 6 sons and his grandchildren and great grandchildren. May Allah, the Lord of the worlds, accept him as Shaheed. May his many good deeds and exceptional sacrifices be accepted. May those who oppressed him face justice. May he enter an enlightened grave and the highest paradise. May his wife and family meet him there. Ameen.
We seek your prayers that the family are able to give Prof Azam a dignified burial and to see him and pay their respects. We fear that those who have oppressed him in life will seek to prevent this from happening.
We request all Professor Azam’s well wishers to observe his passing with fortitude, dignity and patience. Professor Azam was a man of peace and love for his Lord. Please grieve as he is worthy of being grieved. We expect the government to respect people’s democratic right to peacefully grieve and protest the injustice that has been subjected on this righteous leader.
