Hujjat EC Statement 09/03/2022


Salaam Alaykum dear members,

Please find below a statement from Aqeel Bhai Merchant.

“It is with great disappointment that I have to inform you of my resignation as the Treasurer of KSIMC of London, which is due to personal circumstances. I feel that I need some time to refocus, particularly on my health which hasn’t been great of late.

It is a decision which I haven’t taken lightly given the crucial time for our community with the upcoming refurbishment of our centre in Stanmore and the acquisition of the Harefield property. However, I feel confident that both projects are being managed by hard working teams and InshaAllah will succeed. In the coming weeks I shall work closely with the new Treasurer and provide him with support on accounting and audit matters.

I pray to Allah that he gives us success for a better future for our community. Ameen.

Aqeel Merchant


The Executive Committee has co-opted Bashir Bhai Pirbhai as Treasurer for the remainder of our term. We would like to wish Aqeel bhai all the best for the future, and insha’Allah Allah swt rewards him amply for all his hard work.
