    Fouz, you are right. May God grant him highest felicity in Jannah (Paradise).

    He did much for the community as well as to create communal harmony between all communities in Sri Lanka.

Ya allah, the most gracious and most merciful, forgive his sins,make easy upon him the torment of the grave,make his grave spacious and bright,make his journey quick over sirathul musthaqeem and enter him to jennathul firdhouse with the shafaath of our beloved Prophet MUHAMMAD(Peace be upon him). aameen yarabbal alameen.

    Innalillahiwahinnahilaihirajooun, We lost a great human being who promotes peace, interfaith harmony and religious tolerance, May Allah swt grand him the highest place in Al-Jannathul Firdaus. AAMEEN

    Sicillian Sunday, 04 July 2010 12:08 PM

    May Allah give him high place in heaven. At last we lost a person who spoke for the nation and stopped religious divide. I have not seen a single cleric who speaks so much to bring people together. In addition to this he is the only cleric who was there to welcome the president when he arrived.

    A,Mohamed Sunday, 04 July 2010 12:25 PM

    Alhaj Niyas mowlavi's passing away is immature at this time,when through his TV particiapation programmem the non muslime-got the opportunity of the goodness of ISLAM AND muslims. It cannot be denied that non-Muslims benefited out of this and they understood ISLAM than before. He could have continued and conveyed the total message of the PROPHET MUHAMMAD AND BROUGHT PEACE AND HARMONY TO ALL COMMUNITIES

    GLORY TO THE ONE WHO CREATED THE HEAVENS AND THE EARTH .

    THE REAL INHERITORS OF THE PROPHETS ARE HIS HONEST ULEMA .EVEN IN SAUDI ARABIA TRUE ULEMAS DO NOT PATRONIZE THE KINGS , PRINCESES AND DIRTY POLITICIANS.

    LIFE AND DEATH IS A COMMON THING CREATED BY ALLAH

    I AM REALLY SAD A ( ULEMA ) AS INHERITORS OF PROPHETS KNOWLEDGE HE SHOULD HAVE ENDED ON MUCH HIGHER CREDIBILITY .

    BUILDING OF BRIDGES NEED NOT NECESSARILY BE CARRIED OUT ONLY BY DRAMATIC POLITICAL ALIGNMENTS WE MAY END ON THE WORST SIDE YET AND THOUGH

    MAY ALLAH PARDON HIM, ELEVATE HIS STATUS ,REWARD FOR HIS CALLING PEOPLE TO THE TRUTH,GIVE STRENGTH TO HIS KITH AND KIN TO OVERCOME THIS LOSS , GRANT THEM A BETTER ALTERNATIVE AND GRANT HIM THE SUPREME BLISS OF ( JENNTHUL FIRDOUSE) PARADISE

    Niyas Moulavi is not only an advisor to the president, but also popular as a "Gun speaker" among Muslims and Singhalese people.... he served as a cleric in religious affairs and actively took part in political and social activities island wide....May Almighty grant his all good deeds and enter him in "Jannathul Firdous"

    Sanka-green alliance Sunday, 04 July 2010 02:21 PM

    He was a goo heart. And lots of non Muslims listen to him and coz of him fundamentalists religious groups couldn't have a bigger impact on our country.

    "Niyas Moulavi" as we all knew him suddently have passed away from us and we all have to follow him. May The Almighty forgive him and accept him as a 'winner of the hereafter'. we should not utter anything bad about a dead person because he/she has been already rewarded for their deeds.

    Abdul Sunday, 04 July 2010 07:22 AM

    This is insane...I think when a person dies you don't judge by his political stance. Although I don't agree with his political views, he was seen as a symbol for muslims.

    May Almighty God bless his soul. He is more of a politician than a cleric. Therefore, it is correct to identify him as a politician who always went to the "Petti Kade" for our great president. The clerics are people who live in accordance with the teachings of the faith and conscious.

    Muhammad Ifraz Sunday, 04 July 2010 07:34 AM
