Raja Ashman bin Azlan Shah with Habib Ali al-Jifri and Shaykh Muhammad Nazim al-Haqqani
Bismillahi’ r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem
إِنَّا لِلّهِ وَإِنَّـا إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعونَ Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji`oon. To Allah we belong and unto Him do we return.
On behalf of Mawlana Shaykh Nazim al-Haqqani and his family: Hajjah Naziha, Shaykh Muhammad, Hajj Baheddin, Hajjah Ruqiyya, Shaykh Hisham and Feridun and all grandchildren of Mawlana Shaykh Nazim and on behalf of all Naqshbandis around the world we express our deepest condolences for the passing of His Royal Highness Raja Ashman bin Azlan Shah.
The tongue cannot express the warm sympathy and love that we all had for Raja Ashman. It is an extraordinary tragedy and a great loss to Mawlana Shaykh Nazim and all his mureeds and everyone of us feels it intensely.
He left this life immediately after doing dhikr tonight. We request all mureeds to make salat al-janaza al-ghaib for him in their mosques or homes, asking Allah that his soul be with the Prophet Sallallahu Alayhi Wassallam and with Grandshaykh `Abdullah al-Fa’iz ad-Daghestani Alayhi Rahma. We ask everyone to do tahlil by reciting Surah Yasin and dhikr and dedicating it to his soul.
We express the deep condolences of all the mureeds of Mawlana Shaykh Nazim around the world and especially in Malaysia.
We ask Allah swt to give patience and perseverance to his family, his wife, his children, his father Sultan of Perak and his mother the Queen of Perak and all his sisters and his brother Raja Muda.
Shaykh Muhammad Hisham Kabbani
