Akhtar-un-Nisa, last of Maulana Muhammad Ali’s children, passes away.

It is reported from Lahore that Akhtar-un-Nisa Begum, the last of the sons and daughters of Hazrat Maulana Muhammad Ali, passed away today, 6th February, at Darus Salaam, the Lahore Ahmadiyya centre in Garden Town, Lahore. Inna li-llahi wa inna ilai-hi raajioon. She was 93 years of age.

She was still regularly participating in the activities of the Jama`at. She was a member of the executive committee of the Ahmadiyya Women’s Association and attended their monthly meeting just three days ago. She also attended the Jumua prayers yesterday.

Glancing through pages of Paigham-i-Sulh of the 1930s, one comes across reports of activities of the Young Ahmadi Girls Association. Miss Akhtar-un-Nisa was the moving force behind this organization.

May Allah grant her a high place in Paradise, along with her earlier departed elders, and may He also grant patience and fortitude to the bereaved family to bear this irreparable loss. Ameen.

  1. Inna LiL’Lahay Wa Inna ELay Hay Rajay’oon
    We all leave this earthly life. Only good deeds, we carry with us.

  2. May Allah bless Muhammad Ali and his lineage.

    I know not where His islands lift
    Their fronded palms in air;
    I only know I cannot drift
    Beyond His love and care.
