The man who will be remembered by future generations in #China - and not only there !
With great sadness it is to be announced that on this sacred #Friday our beloved Maulana #Muhammad Osman Chou Sahib (also known affectionately as Ceenni Sahib)
has passed away today in London, اناللهِ وَانا اِاليهِ راجعون
May Allah rest his soul with His loved ones. (The first picture shows him with his childhood friend, late Maulana Abdul Wahab Adam sb. from Ghana)
Cheeni Sahib, came from a line of #Chinese#Muslims in #Shanghai .
In an attempt to gain a deeper education in Islam, he met Chaudhry Muhammad Zafrulla Khan in the #Pakistan Embassy in China and, through his sponsorship, went with five other Chinese Muslims to #Rabwah in Pakistan for formal training at the Jami’ah (Missionary Training Institute). Since then he has written and translated several books on Islam for the Chinese people, including the Holy #Quran . He has served with distinction as one of the most respected Ahmadi Muslim missionaries in Pakistan, South East Asia and the UK.
In my personal encounters with him I remember him as one of the kindest, softest and most affectionate persons I ever met. ❤😢 May Allah enable us to follow in the the footsteps of such beautiful personalities. Ameen.
