Hazrat Ameer Dr Asghar Hameed passes
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.
