Inna Lillahi Wa Inna Ilaihir-raaji’un.
Today, Tuesday 9th of April 2019 at 1:00 am, Sheikh Muhammad Marrah (Imam of Masjid As-Salaam, Amir of Al Ridwaan Foundation, Moderator of the Progamme “Muslim Character” at Voice of Islam and Inspirational Sheikh of the Year 2018) has passed away at his elder brother’s house (Hill Station, Freetown.) where he was recovering after a very critical surgery procedure that was done on him early this year due to an illness he started noticing during the sad incident between Masjid Al-Ridwan and it nearby Gas Station at Lumley.
Shiekh Marrah (normally called The Sahaba) has been a great inspiration to many young and old Muslims. During his days, he sacrificed himself with relentless effort to promote Islam not just in Sierra Leone but around Africa and the world.
Last year, he was awarded best Influential Sheikh of the year by the Youths in Action for the Development of Islam (YADI).
Sheikh Marrah is beloved by many people including Muslims and Non-Muslims as well his own Muslim Colleague Sheikhs.
During the Sad incident at lumley around November 7 and 8, he played a significant role with the Sierra Leone Association of Journalist (SLAJ), the Police and the Muslim Community to maintain peace and stability between the Gas station owner and the Muslim Community.
Sheikh Muhammad Marrah can best be remembered by every Sierra Leonean Muslim for his Islamic Monotheism (Oneness of Allah) and his love for the Quran and Sunnah throughout his Spiritual life, his lectures and humanitarianism.
To some of us, we know Sheikh Marrah has always been prepared and waiting for this day (literally).
May Allah grant him Jnnatul Firdaus and Protect his children and family. Ameen Ya Rabb.
Sheikh Marrah will be burried at Masjid Al-Ridwaan, Lumley (If the Government allows) or at Ilmul Zikr, Hill Station or at Voice of Islam, Circular Road In Shaa Allah. Time to be announced later In Shaa Allah.
