Shaykh-ul-Islam visits the blessed shrines of Imam Shaafi (R.A) & Sayyida Nafisa (R.A)
After a heart-warming arrival and reception of Shaykh-ul-Islam in Cairo, the first activity of the Egypt tour became a visit to the holy shrines of Imam Shafi’ (May God be pleased with him) and the noble and blessed granddaughter of Sayyidina Imam Hasan (May God be pleased with him), Sayyida Nafisa (May God be pleased with her), also known as Sayyida Taahira (The Lady of Purity.)
On Friday evening, Shaykh-ul-Islam accompanied by Sahibzada Dr Hassan Mohi-ud-Din Qadri and a number of MQI delegates and members, visited the holy shrine of Sayyida Nafisa (May God be pleased with her). Seeing the humble manner in which Shaykh-ul-Islam arrived to the shrine and paid tribute and respects, left the accompanying gathering in a state of admiration and awe.
Isha prayer was offered in the Sayyida Nafisa Mosque, which was first built by the governor of Egypt, Ubaydullah bin Sirri bin al-Hakam after the demise of Sayyida Nafisa (May God be pleased with her).
After visiting the shrine, Shaykh-ul-Islam continued to the blessed resting place of Imam Shaafi’ (May God be pleased with him) Here, the delegation offered optional prayers before paying tributes and respects at the noble grave of Imam Shaafi’.
