Inna Lillahi wa Inna Ilaihi Raaji’oon.

The Muslim Ummah has lost a great legend. It is with profound sadness that ICNA announces the passing of Allama Delawar Hossain Sayedee while in prison. He was the Naaib Amir of Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami. He was an internationally acclaimed exegete (Mufassir) of the Qur’an and former Member of Parliament.

This great leader was unjustly imprisoned for well over a decade and was never given a chance of a fair trial. According to reports, even his family was not allowed to meet him after his recent illness and heart attack. The death of Allama Sayedee is a great loss to this Ummah and particularly to the people and the Islamic Movement of Bangladesh.

It is very difficult to describe in words the level of impact that Allama Sayedee had in the lives of people, worldwide. His passion, his dedication, his charisma, his eloquence and yet so simple and humble, were beyond captivating. He had a dynamic personality with a resoundingly impactful legacy – a truly unique icon whose contributions will benefit generations to come Insha Allah!

May Allah have mercy on him and enter him into the highest levels of Paradise. Allama Delawar Sayedee has joined those great souls that have returned to Allah SWT after sacrificing all they have in this world, for Allah SWT’s sake. May Allah accept him as a martyr and fulfill his dream to become a Shaheed. By the Will of Allah their sacrifices will not be forgotten and the quest for justice and Deen continues. Inna Lillahi wa Inna Ilaihi Raaji’oon!
