In memory of Khwaja Mazhar Mahmoud
who passed away on Friday 25th September 2020
By Haji Abdul Rehman - Funeral Director Hounslow Jamia Masjid
26th September 2020
To Allah we belong and to Him is our return. Words cannot express my sorrow at the loss of my dear friend, a beautiful man of many great qualities, Khwaja Mazhar Mahmood. Khwaja sahib was instrumental in the creation of the first ever funeral service in Hounslow Masjid in 2001, as part of an initial group of 3 including myself and another brother Haji Gondal. We faced several obstacles but with the determination of Khwaja sahib and his selflessness we grew from a small setup to serving hundreds. I am deeply saddened at his death but am sure he will be rewarded greatly for his great service. He was always vocal in the affairs of the Mosque and was greatly respected by all he came into contact with. I pray he enters Jannah without reckoning and may Allah grant sabr to his family
