With total submission to Allah (SWT), Jama’atu Nasril Islam (JNI), under the leadership of His Eminence, Alhaji Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar, CFR, mni, the Sultan of Sokoto and President-General, JNI, condoles with the Saudi Arabian Government over the demise of the paramount ruler of the kingdom, King Abdullah Ibn Abdul’Azeez Al-Sa’ud, as reported on 22nd January 2015.
Indeed during the deceased’s reign, the kingdom witnessed rapid infrastructural development, taking into consideration the magnificent turn-around of the two sacred Mosques of the kingdom that the late monarch was instrumental to as its custodian, which tremendously eases the observance of the rituals of Hajj by the pilgrims throughout the world.
The late monarch was also known for diplomacy and a sense of tie-ship of the Ummah. Thus he facilitated numerous peace pacts and cordial relationship across faiths. It is also on record that his reign witnessed economic fortunes to the kingdom.
JNI, therefore, uses this avenue to console with the immediate family of the deceased, the government/kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the Muslim Ummah the world over. May Allah, the Most High forgive the shortcomings of the deceased and continue to grant peace, stability and progress to the kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the Muslim Ummah in general.
We also wish the new monarch, Salman Ibn Abdul’Azeez, Allah’s guidance, foresight and longevity as he steers the affairs of the kingdom of Saudi Arabia. May Aljannatul Firdaus be the abode of all our deceased, Amin.
