Noted Islamic thinker and former bureaucrat Shah Abdul Hannan passed away; Jamaat Ameer condoles

Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami’s Ameer Dr. Shafiqur Rahman has issued the following message of condolence on 2 June 2021 at the death of noted economist and former Secretary of Bangladesh government Shah Abdul Hannan.

Noted economist and former Secretary of Bangladesh government Shah Abdul Hannan died in a city hospital at 10:37 in the morning on 2 June 2021. Innalillahi Wa Inna Ilaihi Rajiun. He has been undergoing treatment for last couple of days. He has discharged duties as the Secretary to the Finance Ministry and various other ministries successfully. He also accomplished his duties as the Chairman of Islami Bank Bangladesh Limited, Ibn Sina Trust and Diganta Media Corporation. He was a renowned Islamic scholar. He held a strong view about contemporary issues and wrote columns and articles regularly. He led a very simple life. The nation lost an outstanding economist and big-hearted Islamic figure at his demise. His vacuum will not be fulfilled easily. I am expressing deep shock at his death and extending deep sympathies to his mournful families, relatives, colleagues, fans and followers.

May Allah forgive his sins and shower mercy on him. May Allah accept all his noble deeds to bless him with Jannah.
