THE Chief Sheikh, Mufti Issa bin Shaaban bin Simba, is dead. Alhaj Simba died on Monday morning at the TMJ Hospital in Dar es Salaam where he was undergoing treatment and will be laid into peace today.
It is a sad moment for the Moslem and Tanzanian Community in general, because during his lifetime the late Muft played a very big role in advocating all human-beings to perform good deeds, humanity, peace and love.
Taborians will always remember the late Muft because at times (long time) he used to visit Tabora town and learn religious issue from the late Haj Sheikh Rashid. Uyui pays a tribute to the late Muft.
When such a highly knowledgeable leader passed away, definitely the community too, is losing the knowledge and wisdom he accumulated for many years. We are all from the Almighty God and to him we shall return.
