Ahmed Kathrada Funeral Details

The Jamiatul Ulama South Africa has confirmed that the funeral of late stalwart Ahmed Kathrada is expected to take place tomorrow.

Kathrada passed away at the Donald Gordhan Hospital in Johannesburg early on Tuesday.

He was hospitalised earlier this month for surgery related to blood clotting on the brain.

Secretary General of the Jamiatul Ulama South Africa Moulana Ebrahim Bham says Kathrada will be buried according to Islamic rights.

“The janaza will leave from Masjid-ul-Furqaan in 2nd Avenue, Houghton tomorrow morning at 9 o’ clock. There will be a tribute at the West Park Cemetery and the janaza salaah will be tomorrow at 11:30am.”

Ml. Bham says people should continue to make dua that Allah accept Kathrada’s efforts.

“May Allah forgive his shortcomings, Allah make his efforts that he has done in one field a means of the elevation of his status.”
