Condolences for a Dawah Carrier, Brother Omar Daoud (Abu Hisham)
مِّنَ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ رِجَالٌ صَدَقُوا مَا عَاهَدُوا اللَّهَ عَلَيْهِ فَمِنْهُم مَّن قَضَىٰ نَحْبَهُ
وَمِنْهُم مَّن يَنتَظِرُ وَمَا بَدَّلُوا تَبْدِيلًا
“Among the Believers are men who have been true to their Covenant with Allah: of them some have completed their vow (to the extreme), and some (still) wait: but they have never changed (their determination) in the least” [TMQ 33:23]
In the belief and acknowledgment of the will of Allah the Almighty, Hizb ut Tahrir / America sends its condolences to Muslims in general and the Shabab of Hizb ut Tahrir in particular.
Among one of the most loyal followers of Allah (swt) and the protector of the Dawah, and a first generation Dawah carrier was our beloved Brother Omar Daoud (Abu Hisham).
Allah (swt) has taken Br. Abu Hisham on Monday, 20 Rajab 1438 AH corresponding to April 17 2017 CE at the age of 88. His life was spent in the obedience to Allah (swt) carrying the call to resume the Islamic way of life through the reestablishment of the Khilafah "Caliphate" (Caliphate) upon the method of the Prophethood.
He was like a beacon of light (noor) in his activity in carrying the Dawah, facing the challenges with patience, never wavering until his last days when he became very ill. Br. Abu Hisham was one of the first to bring Dawah to America during the last century. Like other members of the Hizb ut Tahrir, he suffered the bitterness of imprisoning of the unjust regime in Jordan where he was detained for two years. His beloved saying was always, “Ya Allah, allow us to witness the Islamic caliphate”.
We ask Allah (swt) to grant His Mercy upon him, to accept him with good acceptance, and to grant him Jannatul Al-Firdous with the Prophets and Righteous men, and to reward him and all Muslims with the best reward.
Inna Lillahi wa inna Ilayhi raji’un (To Allah we belong and to Him we return).
H. 20 Rajab 1438
