Ch. Zulafqar ex-prasident Minhaj ul Quran Frankfurt passed away

Inna lillahi wa inna ilahi raji'un [Arabic: ???? ??? ? ???? ???? ??????? ]
Verily we belong to Allah, and to Allah we return"

It is indeed a very sad news about the death of Ch Zulfiqar Saab during his visit to Pakistan, who I knew personally for many years. He was indeed very missionary man and his death is a great loss for Minhaj-ul-Quran Frankfurt. He was very soft spoken, easy to speak to and very respectful. He was one of the early members of Minhaj-ul-Quran who set-up the centre in Frankfurt, Germany. He used to hold Mahfil-e-Naat and other religious gatherings at home and hosted many guests of Minhaj-ul-Quran. I remember we travelled to Hagen for a Minhaj-ul-Quran programme once back in 1999 or 2000 on the same car and his views, ideas and suggestions about the mission were  highly recognised and his guidance for the younger members was highly appreciated. His aim was to unite the members and overlook the mistakes of any brothers.

This news has indeed saddened me and I pray to Almight Allah to grant him highest state in Jannah and accept his services for Minhaj-ul-Quran in Germany and make them for his benefit in the life hereafter.

My condolences are to his family, friends and the Minhaj-ul-Quran brothers in Frankfurt especially Azhar Farooq Saab, Malik Khizar Saab, Sabar Saab, Afzal Qadri Saab and others.
