New Delhi, Oct 31: Amir Jamaat-e-Islami Hind Maulana Syed Jalaluddin Umari expressed his deep sense of sorrow and grief over the demise of Maryam Jameelah, an eminent academic personality in the Muslim world, in Lahore today. He called her passing away a great loss of Muslim Ummah and prayed to Allah the Exalted for her forgiveness and high status in the Paradise.
In a statement here today, the Maulana said that once the truth of Islam became evidently clear to her with the study of the Qur’ān she did not let any fear, greed or relationship to be an obstacle in the way of her coming to the fold of Islam despite the American Jewish background; this is the most outstanding aspect of the life of Maryam Jameelah and it would be remembered for the times to come. Leaving her native land for good, she took rendering academic service to Islam as her life mission and established an exemplary precept with her ideal social life. Expressing his condolence to the members of her family, the JIH chief prayed for their patience.
