Message of Condolence

Monday, 19 Ramadan 1444 AH | 10 April 2023

Lagos, Nigeria
Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raaji’oon
It is with heavy heart that we received the sad news of the death of His Excellency, Prince Bola Ajibola, on 18 Ramadan 1444 AH (Sunday, 9th of April, 2023). A giant amongst his peers, baba lived a life of dedication, worship and sacrifice. Through his noble examples, he taught us many lessons of life, the foremost of which are dedication to God alone and sacrifice for the nation.
We send heartfelt condolences to his family and the entire nation. We accept the death of the international icon in the light of the Quranic verses:
“Give glad tidings to those who patiently endure, who say when afflicted with a calamity: “To Allah we belong and to Him we return.” They are those on whom (descend) blessings and mercy from their Lord, and they are the ones who receive guidance.” (Qur’an Surah Baqarah; 2:155-157).
May his life and examples be a guiding light for this Ummah, and the nation at large. We pray that Allah (SWT) will shower His mercy on him, expand his grave and grant him the highest level of Paradise – Jannat Ul-Firdous – and give his children patience in this difficult time. Ameen.
The entire Management Team and staff of Muslim Public Affairs Centre, MPAC, express our profound condolences to the families of His Excellency, Prince Bola Ajibola. Baba will forever be remembered by us for the great works and achievements in the service of Allah, and humanity.
Without a doubt, he will remain in our dua.

As you’re here…

MPAC has one humble request from you…

Thousands of Nigerian Muslims rely on the services we provide at MPAC and thousands more from around the world visit our website for news every day. Due to the significant challenges we face in dealing with Muslim-related issues in a heightened Islamophobic environment, MPAC is constantly under financial strain to meet our financial needs.

To maintain editorial and financial independence, with no sectarian or political allegiance to any particular group or movement, MPAC relies only on donations from individuals like you.

It is easy to understand the importance of organisations that do the sort of work we do at MPAC in today’s climate. Please support us financially and please support us for as little as N1000 a month. It only takes a minute to make a one-off donation or to set up a standing order with your bank. Jazakallah khayran.

Our beloved Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: “The best deeds are those done regularly, even if they are small.” [Ibn Mājah]
