مِّنَ ٱلْمُؤْمِنِينَ رِجَالٌ صَدَقُوا۟ مَا عَـٰهَدُوا۟ ٱللَّهَ عَلَيْهِ ۖ فَمِنْهُم مَّن قَضَىٰ نَحْبَهُۥ وَمِنْهُم مَّن يَنتَظِرُ ۖ وَمَا بَدَّلُوا۟ تَبْدِيلًا
“Among the believers are men true to what they promised Allah (swt). 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” [TMQ Al-Ahzab:23].
With sadness but with feelings of great admiration Hizb ut-Tahrir Britain writes that one of its members: Jahangir Raja passed away in the morning of 27 June 2021, at the age of 44. A father of five, he spent his last two decades working for the pleasure of Allah (swt) with Hizb ut-Tahrir to resume the Islamic way of life by establishing the Khilafah Rashidah (rightly guided Caliphate) on the method of Prophethood.
His sincerity and concern for the Ummah were ever present. He was humble, softly spoken but never unwavering in the pursuit of seeing Allah (swt)’s deen re-established.
The heartfelt tributes to Jang, as he was lovingly known, spanning the globe, from London to Lahore, are a testament to the impact of his work for revival.
He was from among the sincere Hizb ut-Tahrir dawa carriers arrested at the Uzbekistan embassy in 2005 for accounting the tyrant Islam Karimov, who boiled his political opponents to death.
Jang was a loving and caring husband and father and devoted son, who died after being hospitalised with Covid.
إنا لله وإنا إليه راجعون
May Allah (swt) have mercy on Jahangir Rajah, widen and illuminate his grave and grant him the highest abode of Jannah. May the angels wash him, shroud him and bury him with the rank of a martyr for this noble deen.
