ATTRIBUTE TO THE LATE SHEIKH SAID BIN ABDALLAH BIN ALI EL-BUALI
May Allah SW grant our Beloved Brother Sheikh Said Bin Abdallah Bin Ali El Buali Jannatul Firdaus and Peace in his Kabr. Amin.
Sheikh Said was born in 1940, Malindi Kenya as from the records available to us. He passed away on the 26th October 2015 at the age of 75 Years old in Muscat, Sultanate of Oman.
To elaborate on our late Brother Sheikh Said how he performed the duties and the devotion as Vice Chairman of Tawfiq Muslim Youth for a long Term during his life term in Malindi, he was a real Islamic Leader with high virtues of Faith. He was very kind hearted and dignity to all walks of life and the Society in general.
During his entire period, Sheikh Said was a pious and devoted Muslim and always punctual in his swalats. To an extent he would demand meetings to end 10 minutes before Adhan so that people could go to Masjid earlier for preparations. On the day of his demise can witness his habits of going to Masjid before Adhan Maghrib and used to stay Itikaf in Masjid reciting the Holy Qur’an until after praying Ishaa. We bear witness these qualities are very rare in our modern World only for Ahlul Jannah.
Most people knew him as a simple, humble and down to earth right from his dressing up and would ride on a Bicycle and it was its simplicity of life that made him accommodative to all people or various age.
Sheikh Said was easily available at all times for the welfare of the community be it at the House, Masjid, Work Place or even on the Road Side, He never discriminate while attending to the needs of the Poor and less fortunate be it health issues or education or even employment. He would do all within his capacity to either help by himself or ensure the person get assistance.
In the Organization he was a Dear Brother and held us close in Unity and great advisor. He never looks down upon any person irrespective of ideals, color or intellectualism.
Al-Hamdulillah from the little that Allah SW had provided him he would contribute towards educating, or paying for Health care to many people. In deed he demonstrated a high characteristic of kind Hearted.
After he underwent heart operation, Sheikh Said was taken a back and he felt very sad that he could no longer be very effective to the routine and long hours in helping the needs of the people.
He was instrument in forging unity with other organizations in our town and many donors due to his trustworthy, honesty and in delegating his duties, Sheikh Said was always the first one and always ahead in ensuring our unity and development come first in all aspects. One month before Sheikh Said to pass on an incident occurred in Malindi between two warring parties and one of the children recalled that if Sheikh Said was around this matter would have been resolve instantly. This is a testimony that he played a pivotal role for the strengthening and unity of our community.
We as an Organization have recognize the tirelessly efforts in the manner he had served in humility that we all adore and bear witness. He imparted with us very high morals and duties in serving our organization.
We shall always remember Sheikh Said and pray that ALLAH Subhanau Wataala rest his Soul in Jannatul Firdaus. Allah Subhanau Wataala give his beloved Wife, Children and grand children, the entire family and friends strength in these times of pain for the Sudden demise. May Allah give them Sabr.
