In the name of Allãh, the Kind & Merciful

Verily we belong to Allãh and surely to Him shall we return.

It was with sadness that I read the news of the demise of our friend and brother, Shaykh Ramadhan Ngwame Mburu. I had known the marhum since my childhood when he was studying with my late father in Bilal. Later when I went to Qum for my studies in early seventies, Shaykh Ramadhan was part of the second batch of students sent from Bilal Muslim Mission of Tanzania to Qum in mid seventies. We spent a few years together in Qum. After his return from Qum, he was deputed to Bilal Muslim Mission of Kenya for tabligh in that region which he adopted as his home. 

Shaykh Ramadhan Ngwame was a humble person but with a solid character, and served the cause of Ahlul Bayt (a) to the best of his ability. My last meeting with the marhum was when I visited Mombasa for Muharram in 1437/2015; especially when he came to see me at my place, and we had a lengthy conversation to catch up with our lives.

May the Almighty shower His rahmah and maghfirah upon the marhum, accept his good deeds and endeavors in path of tabligh of pure Islam and place him among the Shi‘as of ‘Ali bin Abi Talib (a).
