It is with a heavy heart and full submission to the will of Allah that we announce the passing of our father-in-islam, The Baba Adini of Lagos, His Eminence Shaykh Abdul Hafeez Ashamu Abou Nolla, OFR.

He was one of the topmost islamic clerics in Nigeria till his demise. He was our Imam, our leader, our teacher and our mentor of several decades in Surulere, an outstanding pillar and leader of the Muslim Ummah in Lagos.

A Father of fathers.
An Imam of imams.
A Shaykh of shaykhs.
A Caller of callers.
A Leader of leaders.

Shaykh Abou (Baba) was well known for his steadfastness and extraordinary life of service to Allah. A true disciple of Allah, Baba dedicated his life wholly to Dawah – the propagation of Islam. A veteran islamic scholar of repute, a Haafizul Qur’an and a graduate of the prestigious Al-Azhar Islamic University of Cairo, Egypt.

Even with his advanced age, he provided a rare and uncommon leadership to the muslim ummah in Lagos and beyond and gave inspiration to all of us in the shining example of his life.

Baba remained for decades an epitome of decency, humility, piety, honesty, hard work, patience, perseverance, commitment to worthy causes and above all devotion to Islam and Almighty Allah.”

Insha Allah, please join us by today 10th of January 2024 at the Lagos Central Mosque for his janazah prayers after which we proceed to Abari cemetry for burial.

May Almighty Allah, in His Infinite Mercy forgive him and have mercy upon him. May Allah widen and illuminate his grave and fill it with the sweet fragrance of misk from paradise.

May Allah save him from the trials of the grave and the trials of the Day of Judgement. May Allah save him from the torments of the grave and the torments of hell.

And may Allah grant him a lofty abode in Aljannatul Firdaws without prior reckoning with the Prophets, the Truthfuls, the Martyrs and the Righteous.

May Allah give his family and the entire muslim ummah in Lagos and beyond the rare strength and fortitude to bear the great loss.

Aaaaaameeen thumma Aaaaaameeen.
