The Muslim Rights Concern MURIC has described the death of Islamic Scholar, Sheikh Ahmad Lemu, as shocking.
Prof. Ishaq Akintola, MURIC Director, said this in a statement in Lagos, on Friday.
Ishaq Akintola says Lemu was a great teacher and a role model. Lemu was the founder of the popular Islamic Education Trust (IET) and the Dawah Coordination Council of Nigeria.
He also contributed his quota to nation building as a member of the Nigeria Inter-Religious Council, the Presidential Council for Youth Development and the Presidential Experts Committee for National Security.
He said Nigerian muslims will miss him as he had left behind a yawning vacuum which might be difficult to fill for a very long time.
May Allah grant him unconditional forgiveness, unlimited mercy and unrestricted access to one of the spacious palaces in al-Jannah.
May Allah also give the family the fortitude to bear the loss.
