Head of Ahmadiyya Muslim Community pays tribute to Abdul Sattar Edhi

Worldwide Head of Ahmadiyya Muslim Community His Holiness Mirza Masroor Ahmad has offered his condolences over the sad demise of Abdul Sattar Edhi. Edhi, who was a prominent Pakistani humanitarian and philanthropist passed away on Friday.

In a statement released on Sunday, the Fifth Khalifa (Caliph), His Holiness, Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad said:

“I was very saddened to hear about the passing of Mr Abdul Sattar Edhi. On behalf of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, I would like to extend my condolences to his family and loved ones.

Abdul Sattar Edhi was an extremely sincere man who devoted his entire life to serving humanity. Living his own life with great simplicity, his only concern was to selflessly serve others and to help those in need. Indeed, it was his exemplary humanitarian and philanthropic work that led him to being the second recipient of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Prize for the Advancement of Peace.

I pray that Pakistan is blessed with many more people who exhibit the same selflessness, sincerity and humanity that Abdul Sattar Edhi displayed throughout his life so that Pakistan can be saved from its current plight and move towards a better and brighter future.

May God Almighty have mercy on the deceased and grant patience to his family members and all of those left bereaved at this difficult and sad time.”

Edhi was awarded the Ahmadiyya Muslim Peace Prize in 2010 for his life saving and development work in Pakistan and other countries.
