SANZAF in the news

SANZAF stalwart “Uncle Mahomed” passes on


Inna Lillahi Wa Inna Illayhi Raa ji-oen

Mahomed Lutchika (1936/05/01 – 2014/02/26)

Mahomed Lutchika worked as a collector for SANZAF for over 19 years. He spent weeks on the road, covering the towns of Old Transvaal, Free State and Botswana, knocking door to door trying to raise funds for our various causes.

Uncle Mahomed, as he was affectionately known, found a way into the hearts and lives of many a contributor and their families. He genuinely believed that SANZAF could make a difference and he often reminded donors of their obligations to the poor. Not too many could turn him down!

In fact, Uncle Mahomed was proud of the fact that he saved SANZAF money whenever he travelled out of town, as he was always offered a place to stay and a home cooked meal in every town.

Uncle Mahomed was not without his own idiosyncrasies and we could never find a suitable co-driver for him on his long journeys, even as he got on in age, he was very particular about his driving companion.

Uncle Mahomed was not well in the last few years and battled cancer, which he finally succumbed to on Thursday morning. Despite his illness and being “boarded off”, Uncle Mahomed continued to volunteer as a collector until just a few days ago. His last deposit was on 13 February, which he collected in Polokwane, the town he loved most of all.

We will miss Uncle Mahomed, as we are sure many a contributor cum friend will. We pray to Allah to accept his service and his sacrifice and to accord him the highest station in Jannahtul Firdause, Insha-Allah. We pray that Allah grants his family Sabar Jameel.

Janaza Salaah will take place at 12.30pm today at Manzil Park Masjid, 62 Abdul Kara, Street, Manzil Park, Klerksdorp.

Please remember to make a special dua for Mahomed Lutchika.
