The Muslim Council of Britain extends its condolences to the family of Pir Alauddin Siddiqui who passed away in Birmingham on Friday, 3 February. His janaza (funeral prayer) at Birmingham’s Aston Park was among the largest ever held in the city, an indication of the connection he had established with his community, as a spiritual guide, institution-builder and ready helper of Muslims in distress. Insha Allah (God-willing) he will be duly rewarded on the Day of Accountability. Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raj’iun (from God we come and unto Him we return).
