Resident Aalim: Sheikh Mohamed Abbas Panju
News

sheikhMAPSheikh Mohamed Abbas Panju was born in Nairobi, Kenya where he grew up and completed his G.C.E “O” level studies. He had been an active member within the community and represented the Nairobi Jaffery Sports Club in the provincial cricket league and played for the Nairobi Jaffery Volleyball team between the years 1996 – 2001.

Upon completion of his O-levels, Sheikh briefly migrated to the country state of Vermont in the U.S.A to pursue college studies in the field of chemistry. He soon decided to change majors and consequently moved to Ottawa, Canada where he obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Commerce with honours in Finance and International Management.

Upon completion of his university degree, he was employed by the Bank of America in Ottawa where he worked as an Account Manager for two years. During his stay there, Abbas was actively involved in teaching at the Madrassa. He was also keenly involved in the Muslim Student Federation (M.S.F) – a student organization within the University of Ottawa responsible for creating awareness of the Ahlul Bayt (S) by hosting events and talks within the university.

After marriage, Sheikh and his wife decided to migrate to Syria to pursue Islamic Studies at the Hawza level. He studied the traditional “Muqaddimaat” curriculum at the renowned Islamic Institute: Hawza Al Ilmiyya Al Zaynabiya in the Sayeda Zaynab district within the proximity of the shrine of the daughter of Ameerul Mu`mineen (S). He was seen with great admiration within the Hawza for obtaining distinguished marks in the Science of Logic and Theology (Aqa’id). Additionally, the Sheikh was actively involved in translation (Arabic – English). Some of his works include:

•    A commentary on Surah Al Maidah Verse 55 (Ayah of Wilayah)
•    Commemorating the legacy of Imam Al Husayn (S)
•    A Treatise on Black Clothes
•    A commentary on Surah Al Maryam Verse 50

In May 2011, Sheikh moved to the Holy city of Najaf Al Ashraf to continue studies in fiqh and principals of jurisprudence.

Last but not least, he is fluent in four languages (English, Arabic, Swahili, Gujarati).

Salaam Alaykum,

Further to our President's speech on Saturday 18th January 2014, in which he reported that the vendors of the Borehamwood property had refused to hold further discussions with the task force, we have received a number of enquiries from members asking us to explain the status and outcome of our negotiations.

The EC have requested the Task Force to prepare a comprehensive report outlining every aspect of their negotiations detailing the steps taken from the beginning.

We would urge members to bear with us whilst the task force prepare this report and we hope to share this with you once complete.
