It is with great sorrow that we received the news on the demise of Ustaz Dato Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat, long time Chief Minister of Kalantan. and Murshidul Aam of PAS.
إِنَّا لِلّهِ وَإِنَّـا إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعونَ
He was a model Islamic scholar, ruler and Daee. His modest and simple life was an example for modern day rulers. In the world he was an exception to be an Islamic leader to be elected to rule a state again and again for almost a quarter century.
We hope PAS will make available the biography of Ustaz Nik Abdul Aziz Nik in English and Arabic so that the Islamic movement worldwide could learn lessons from his life.
May Allah forgive his shortcomings and grant him Jannatul Firdaws.
Kindly convey our deep condolences to the family and friends of Ustaz Abdul Aziz
Your brother in Islam
