11 April 2017
It is with great sadness we inform you that our beloved brother and National Council member, Muhammad Sajid Baig, sadly passed away on the evening of 08 April 2017 following a sudden heart attack whilst attending Maghrib prayer at his local mosque in Burnley. An IT professional, aged only 43 years old, he was an active council member, representing our national affiliate, UK Islamic Mission, where he had spent many years developing their youth activities.
He leaves behind a widow and a young daughter and our thoughts and prayers are with them and his extended family. May Allah have mercy on his soul.
Inna Lillahi wa Inna Ilaihi Raajioun (To Him we belong and to Him we return)
His Janaza (Funeral Prayer) will take place today (Tuesday 11 April) at 6.45pm at Masjid Ibrahim, 2 Clegg Street, Burnley BB10 1AX.
