The National Independent Halaal Trust is sad to announce the passing away of one of our longest serving regional inspectors, Sheikh Goolam Tirey (79), this morning in Port Elizabeth.
Sheikh Tirey had served his community in the Eastern Cape diligently and had joined the NIHT inspection team in 2001. His work ethic was indeed exemplary and he was always someone the younger inspectors could look up to as a role model. Although Marhoom Sheikh discovered that he had developed cancer late last year, Marhoom insisted that he continue to conduct his inspections until two months back.
The NIHT calls on the Ummah to remember Sheikh Goolam Tirey in their Duas and pray that Allah grants him a lofty place in Jannah. May the Almighty also grant Sabr to his family at this time of bereavement. Indeed it is Allah’s promise that, “Every soul shall have a taste of death.”
