“The weakest faith is to shut up and not remind him of good or bad,Professor Ahmed’s work closely testifies that he was one of the kindest, most kind and spontaneous characters, and I don’t want to say naivety, and he doesn’t have anything in his heart.
“May Allah forgive him and us and join him for faith and unity. Peace, mercy and blessings be upon you.”
