“It is stated in the Hadith: “I have left you with two weighty things, the Book of Allah and the people of my House.” This is the requirement of this Hadith, Those elders made great efforts in the beginning, so in future more is expected from them” (Malfozaat: Discourses of Moulana Ilyas Kandhlawi, discourse 58, p 42, Islamic Book Service, 2000)
With great sadness I would like to announce to my friends and relatives that my respected grandfather Lt. Colonel Syed Mohammad Amiruddin an-Naqshbandi (rahmatullahi alaihi) has left this temporary abode to the presence of the Lord Most High. From Allah did we originate, and back into Allah shall we be returned. His medical records demonstrate he did not die from any illnesses, or disease. Rather, with age, and from excessive worship his body eventually began giving up on him. He spent his entire life bringing people to believe in the Prophet of the Bani Hashim, to call the Adhaan of the Bani Hashim, encouraging them to memorize the Qur’an revealed to the Prophet of Bani Hashim, calling people to pray towards the Qibla of the Prophet of Bani Hashim, and to try to dress and act like the Prophet of the Bani Hashim. He was a soldier until his last breaths for the House of ‘Ali ibn Abi Talib (karram Allahu wajhul karim). In 2005 I was personally ordered by him, to re initiate him into the Naqshbandi Tariqat, and keep it a secret during his life, under the Hashemite Qutb Mawlana Shaykh Nazim al-Qubrusi. He was engaged in the remembrance of Allah, and Salawat on the Prophet (S) and His House until he fell unconscious. He died peacefully in his sleep today. May Allah forgive him, us, and all believers.
