With a heavy heart and a burden of great loss, we offer condolences to the community, friends and family of the Late Moulana Mirza Mohammed Athar. This huge loss will be felt throughout the globe as his magnanimous personality touched many lives for generations.
Moulana Mirza Mohammed Athar Saheb was one of the first Alims to denounce the destruction of Jannatul Baqee. His efforts for this cause can be seen in the work of Moulana Yasoob Abbas , son of Moulana Athar Saheb, who organizes an annual Baqee Protest in India on 8th Shawal. This event is a huge undertaking by Moulana Mirza Athar Saheb’s family. Appropriately, Moulana Athar Saheb’s title was Khateeb e Akbar, Master of Orators. His eloquence on the Mimber was elegant. Moulana Saheb related to all of his audience whether young or old, white collar or blue collar, residing in India or abroad. Khateeb e Akbar was a master of conveying complex religious nuances in a easy and an understandable language. His examples during his Majalis will resonate for years to come.
