﴿مِّنَ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ رِجَالٌ صَدَقُوا مَا عَاهَدُوا اللَّـهَ عَلَيْهِ فَمِنْهُم مَّن قَضَىٰ نَحْبَهُ وَمِنْهُم مَّن يَنتَظِرُ وَمَا بَدَّلُوا تَبْدِيلًا﴾
“Among the believers are men true to what they promised Allah. Among them is he who has fulfilled his vow [to the death], and among them is he who awaits [his chance]. And they did not alter [the terms of their commitment] by any alteration” [Al-Ahzaab: 23].
In submission to the command of Allah and content with His Qadaa, we in Hizb ut Tahrir in the Wilayah of Syria announce the death of one of the carriers of the Da’wah from the city of Halab (Aleppo) from amongst those who carried the Da’wah for the ruling to be by the Shar’a of Allah via the establishment of the rightly guided Khilafah (Caliphate) upon the methodology of the Prophethood. He endured, whilst following that path, harassment and prosecutions from the Assad regime prior to the revolution and he continued to work alongside his brothers in the revolution of Ash-Shaam to bring down this criminal regime and to establish the rule of Islam…
Brother Abdullah Abdul Qadir Basmaji
(Well-known as “Abu Abdu Basmaji” May Allah’s mercy be upon him
His passing was before the setting of the sun on Saturday the 8th of Dhul Hijjah when he passed to His Creator whilst he was fasting, after an explosive barrel fell upon the Kalaasah district where he lived in the city of Halab.
We ask Allah Subhaanahu to accept him as a Shaheed (martyr), to make his abode the blissful gardens of Jannah and to raise him amongst the prophets, truthful, martyrs and righteous, and how good is their company.
Verily to Allah we belong and verily unto him do we return, indeed we are sad with your parting O Abdullah, and there is no might or power except with Allah Al-‘Aliy ul-Azheem.
