Obituary of a Dawah Carrier in Palestine: Al-Hajj Rashid Muhammad Salim

مِّنَ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ رِجَالٌ صَدَقُوا مَا عَاهَدُوا اللَّهَ عَلَيْهِ فَمِنْهُم مَّن قَضَىٰ نَحْبَهُ

وَمِنْهُم مَّن يَنتَظِرُ وَمَا بَدَّلُوا تَبْدِيلًا

“Among the believers are men true to what they promised Allah. Among them is he who has fulfilled his vow [to the death], and among them is he who awaits [his chance]. And they did not alter [the terms of their commitment] by any alteration”

[Al-Ahzab: 23]

Hizb ut Tahrir in the Blessed Land- Palestine mourns, one of its members from the first generation, the Dawah carrier:

Al-Hajj Rashid Muhammad Salim (Abu Yasir)

Who passed away yesterday noon, Tuesday 8/5/2018 CE at the age of 88, he spent his life in the obedience of Allah (swt) and carrying the call to resume the Islamic way of life, by establishing the Khilafah Rashida (rightly guided Caliphate) on the method of Prophethood.

Al-Hajj Rashid – may Allah have mercy on him – was one of the first members to join the party in Qalqilya region in the 1950s, and one of the founders of the party in his hometown of Azzun. He spent his life – may Allah have mercy on him – in carrying the call and was active in giving Halaqas and distribution of leaflets till his old age and weakness of his body. He loved the members, and was expectant of the promise of the victory, hoping from Allah to witness the Khilafah, until the command of Allah was decreed and his soul returned to the Creator.

We ask Allah to grant mercy and to make him enter the wide Jannat and to reward him for what he did for us and the Muslims the best reward, and to Allah we belong and to Him we shall return.
