8th Anniversary of Shaykh Ahmed Deedat’s Passing
بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ ,
August 8th, 2005. That was the day the da’wah luminary, the forefather to contemporary da’wah carriers passed away after a career in which he inspired millions to carry on the torch of Islam. His legacy is one of awe and pure class, not only did he rise to the very top during his time, but his efforts opened the way for Muslims to re-engage Christianity and to return to giving da’wah in a mass scale. Whether today is the final day of fasting or ‘Eid for you, please make du’a for this man, that Allaah rewards him with Jannat ul Firdous and that his grave is spacious and filled with the fragrance of Jannah. Ameen.
His many debates, lectures and dialogues are still very relevant and useful. Despite deceits of from popular missionaries, they have been unable to match the scale to which this man brought modern apologetics to. Thousands lined attended his debates, tens of thousands, even hundreds of thousands to this day continue to watch and learn from his videos. I don’t know of a single Christian missionary today who can full a stadium, or theater with several thousand persons. Muslims and Christians alike, traveled far and wide to meet him in South Africa, many sought his guidance in which he dedicated the time and effort to aiding them over the phone. Even when he got ill, the fire inside him to guide the misguided and defend Islam never stopped. Below is the video of his funeral, watch the day that a lion amongst men passed into a better world.
wa Allaahu ‘Alam.
