Hafiz Saheb Patel of Dewsbury Markaz passed away on 18th February 2016, aged 92.  He was head of the Dewsbury Jamaat and  of the Tableegh Jamaat in Europe. He settled in UK in the early 1960s, helping to establish the Savile Grove Masjid mosque and later the Dewsbury Markaz.   Over 5,000  Muslims – from Britain and overseas – participated in the janaza (funeral) prayers, led by his son, Maulana Saeed. This was probably the largest funeral held in Britain. Click here for video.
