To Allah we belong and to Him we shall return.
On 6th Sha`ban 1436/ 24th May 2015 Hadramawt lost one of its spiritual leaders, Habib Ja`far bin Ahmad al-Habashi. He passed away in his native city of Sayun after a lifetime spent in service of the Ummah. He embodied the principles of the Ba `Alawi path: knowledge (`Ilm), action (`Amal), fear of Allah (Khawf), sincerity (Ikhlas) and Scrupulousness (Wara`). He was the son of the great Habib Ahmad bin Musa al-Habashi and a direct descendant of Habib Ahmad bin Zayn al-Habashi, perhaps the greatest of Imam al-Haddad’s students.
