After spending his life as a Da’i of Islam and a Da’i of Khilafah, Dr. Israr Ahmed, passed away in the early hours of today. انا للہ وانا الیہ راجعون O’ Allah! Please forgive his human errors and accept his efforts for raising his voice for the implementation of Islam and the establishment of the Khilafah. O’ Allah! On the day of judgement please grant him the privilege of intercession of Muhammad (saaw). O’ Allah grant patience and steadfastness to the relatives of Dr. Israr Ahmed and accept them as well in this great and honorable work of establishing the Khilafah. Ameen!
Dr. Israr was the most well-known amongst the band of scholars who openly denounce democracy as Kufr and declare Khilafah as the only valid ruling system in Islam. His struggle is most commendable especially in the times when a considerable number of Ulema have an apologetic attitude towards democracy whilst another small cross-section even considers democracy to be an Islamic system. All his life he rejected the electioneering-politics which allowed him to keep himself clean from the blemishes of this kufr system and as a result he maintained his respect and stature in the Ummah. We pray from Allah that He may grant us the Khilafah for which Dr. Israr yearned for all his life and which is the heartbeat of the millions of Muslims across the world so that Muslims may live under the shade of Islam once again. Ameen!
