Awqaf SA is deeply saddened to receive the news of the passing of community activist, humanitarian, and founding secretary of Awqaf SA, Najmie Fredericks.
Our heartfelt condolences go to his wife Najmoen, his father, children, family, friends, and members of the Awqaf SA community on the passing of our brother and compatriot in arms who served Awqaf SA with distinction since inception in Cape Town in 2001. May Allah grant him Janatul Firdous and patience to his family and compatriots during this difficult time.
Together with his loving and supportive wife, Najmoen, they tirelessly contributed to the growth of Awqaf SA and the entrenchment of the Prophetic system of Waqf in South Africa.
Najmie was a community activist who served Awqaf SA diligently since its inception. He was a quiet, unassuming, hard worker who selflessly gave of himself and his personal resources to ensure that the downtrodden and oppressed were liberated from their daily suffering. His humility, vibrant character, and tireless work ethic will be sorely missed.
While we mourn the passing of our dear brother, we take solace in the life of an activist who lived his life to the fullest as an excellent example for all to emulate.
We pray that Allah ﷻ admits him to the highest station in Janaah-tul-Firdows, and may he dwell amongst the Prophets (AS), the martyrs and the pious servants of Almighty Allah.
We make dua that Allah places sabr in the heart of his beloved wife Najmoen, his father, and children. Najmie was dearly loved by all of us.
“But those who believe and do deeds of righteousness, we shall soon admit them to gardens, with rivers flowing beneath, to dwell therein forever. Allah’s promise is the truth, and whose word can be truer than Allah’s?” Quran 4:122
May Allah bless Najmie with HIS paradise. We thank his family for sharing him with South Africa.
