The former director of the Islamic College in London, Shaykh Mohammad Jafar Elmi passed away in London today after a long battle with cancer.
He was the founder and the former principal of the Islamic College. Dr Elmi was a committed ‘alim who will be remembered in the history of the Muslim community in Britain as the one who founded the first Islamic College that offered accredited degrees to its graduates. He will be remembered by his students who attended his lectures both in the Hawza and the College sections. He was a caring individual who cared about the people he worked with, the students that he taught and the College that he founded.
We all pray that Allah will grant him the highest status in the Hereafter because of his noble efforts to establish the College and supervise its progress. May Allah shower him with His blessings and grant patience to his family.
