Mohsin Mahmud Sahib, you did many great things in secret and for no credit. But today the world hears about your life.
"Mohsin Mahmood sahib was an African-American Ahmadi who passed away at the age of 84 on 19 October. He took his Bai’at in 1998 and following his Bai’at he had to face many difficult situations which he endured with great resolve. He had served as sadr of NY Jama’at for fifteen years. He was passionate about Tabligh work. He was a man of high moral standards, was regular in his Salat and had a benevolent, loving, charitable nature. He was devoted to Khilafat and afforded great courtesy to missionaries. Each year he planted flowers at Baitul Zafar, NY and cared for them throughout the year. His financial giving was more than his capacity. When in 2005 Hadhrat Khalifatul Masih appealed the Jama’at to join the scheme of Wasiyyat in greater numbers, and Mohsin sahib was approached locally, he asked what the obligations were. When explained that it required giving one tenth of one’s income he remarked that he already gave twenty to twenty five percent of his income. Yet, in obedience of the appeal of the Khalifa of the time, he promptly joined the scheme of Wasiyyat. In spite of being a retired individual, his chanda would be more than many.
May God forgive both the deceased and grant them Paradise and high station. Hadhrat Khalifatul Masih asked for prayers for the family of Mohsin sahib and Fazlur Rahman sahib to remain firm in their connection with the Jama’at."
