Sarajevo Pays Tribute To The Late Muslim Brotherhood Leader

Written by Grey CARTER

By the decision of the Riyaset of the Islamic Community in Bosnia and Herzegovina, on June 19 the  Ṣalāt al-Janāzah, the Islamic funeral prayer took place in Bosnia as well as in Raska, a region in southern Serbia inhabited by Bosnian Muslim majority who call it “Sandzak”.

I ask the Lord to receive him as a martyr and forgive his sins,” – is what was heard during the Jenaazah in Sarajevo by local imam Kenan efendija Musić.

Musić stressed something interesting – that the janazah was served in honour of the first legitimate democratically elected man, president of a great Islamic state with the great potential of Ummah (unity of all the Muslims).
