Dr Ahmad Gumi loses mother

The mother of Kaduna-based Islamic scholar Dr Ahmad Abubakar Gumi has passed on.

Hajiya Aisha died today in an Abuja hospital after a protracted illness. Her funeral prayers and burial will take place by 1pm on Monday at the residence of Sheikh Abubakar Mahmud Gumi along Modibbo Adama road, behind Lugard Hall Kaduna.

Announcing the death, Dr Gumi said “Inna lillahi WA inna ilaihi rajiun. Today at 5.30pm, with a sad heart, I announce the death of my dear mother. Please seek for Her Allah’s forgiveness and mercy.

“Her last words to me two weeks ago:
In sha Allah, Allah will put her and her children and grandchildren together in Jannah. These words were very comforting to me. Rahmatul lahi alaiha. Amin,” the Islamic scholar said in a Facebook post.
