Hazrat Ameer Dr Asghar Hameed passes away

We announce, with the deepest regret, that news has been received from Lahore that the Head of the Lahore Ahmadiyya Movement Professor Dr Asghar Hameed sahib passed away in the early hours of Monday 14 October (Pakistan time).

Inna li-llahi wa inna ilaihi raji`un (We belong to Allah and to Him we return).

The janaza (funeral) is due to be held today, Monday 14 October, at 7 p.m. (Pakistan time), at Darus Salaam, Lahore, the headquarters of the Ahmadiyya Anjuman Lahore.

Please join us in prayer that:

may Allah shower His mercy on the deceased, grant him His forgiveness and protection, admit him into His Janna, and join him with the righteous elders who have passed away before him. - Ameen.

Our prayers and sympathies are extended to his sons and daughters, and near and dear ones.

The late Hazrat Ameer Dr Asghar Hameed, who was 82 years of age, was an outstanding scholar of Islam and highly learned in the books of the Promised Messiah and Maulana Muhammad Ali. By profession he was a Professor of Mathematics and had reached the high position of vice-chancellor of the Engineering University Lahore before his retirement in the 1970s. All these worldly and religious distinctions were combined with an utterly humble and unassuming personality.
