إِنَّا لِلّهِ وَإِنَّـا إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعونَ . Words cannot express the deep sorrow I feel on your passing. I am numbed and in disbelief. You have been kind, patient, encouraging. You’ve been so much more than a mentor, and inspiration, a guide, a legend, a senior. You have been a friend. The world will remember you as Abid Ali Saab, the greatest of us. For me, you will always be my Agha Jaan. . Farewell you lovely man. May you shine on brighter in heaven insha Allah. It has been the honour of my life to have worked alongside you, and to have been in your company. You will be missed. May Allah grant you the highest place in Jannah, ameen. #gonetosoon #abidali #aghajaan 😔
