A Shiite missionary in Kenya said, “Sheikh Abdillahi Nasir’s propagation method was based on Shia-Suni approximation. He had good relations with Sunni scholars and participated in Sunni ceremonies.”

Hawzah News Agency –On the occasion of the demise of the divine scholar, the preacher of the teachings of the Quran and AhlulBayt (a.s.) in East Africa, and Kenyan member of the General Assembly of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, Sheikh Abdillahi Nasir Juma, a commemoration was held online and in person on Tuesday, January 18, 2022, from 19:00 Tehran time at conference Hall of AhlulBayt (a.s.).

At the ceremony, Hojat al-Islam Mohammad Salim, a Shiite missionary in Kenya, said, “Every time I went to East Africa as a missionary, I met Sheikh Abdillahi Nasir, and he treated me as if I were a great scholar. This eminent scholar, despite his great knowledge, respected others and listened to their words.”

“Sheikh Abdillahi Nasir, although a political figure at the time, understood the sensitivities of Kenya. His propagation method was based on Shia-Suni approximation. He had good relations with Sunni scholars and participated in Sunni ceremonies,” he continued.

“When we, the missionaries, asked Sheikh Abdillahi Nasir for advice as a missionary, he responded, ‘I tell you one thing: keep missionary activities, tell people what Shia is.’ Unfortunately, others have an incomplete idea of the Shia school. To address this shortcoming, Sheikh Abdillahi Nasir wrote a book entitled ‘What is Shia?’ He called on the missionaries to create a correct image of Shia for the people,” the Shiite missionary in Kenya noted.
