Sheikh Muhammad Latif Passes Away

The Light (Pakistan), 8th February 1960 Issue (Vol. 39, No. 5, p. 6)

We are to announce the sad demise of our respected brother Sheikh Muhammad Latif in Rawalpindi on the evening of 26th January 1960 at the age of 70. A man of simple habits, virtuous deeds, affectionate towards children and relatives, a deep conviction in God and the ultimate supremacy of the Islamic values, the late Sheikh Sahib was one of the prominent but silent members of the Lahore Community. He retired as a Superintendent from GHQ (General Headquarters) Delhi. He was confined to bed for the last three or four years but faced all this with smiling patience. He took his pledge of fealty at the hands of late Maulana Muhammad Ali in the year 1918 at Simla.

Sheikh Muhammad Tufail M.A., incharge of Holland Mission, at present the acting Imam of the Shah Jehan Mosque, Woking, England, is the worthy son of this worthy and noble father. The sacred act of late Sheikh Sahib of giving away his able and eldest son for the cause of Islam will ever remain a living memory.

Hazrat Amir [Ameer] (Maulana Sadr-ud-Din), members of the Executive of the Ahmadiyya Anjuman Ishaat-i-Islam Lahore and the whole community express their deep sorrow and heart-felt condolence with the bereaved family particularly with Sheikh Muhammad Tufail who is at present far away in England. May the soul of the deceased rest in eternal peace. Ameen!
