A few days ago, a revered member and scholar of the Community, Respected Osman Chini Sahib passed away
Allah the Almighty through His special decree, brought him to Pakistan from a remote part of China and enabled him to accept Ahmadiyyat. His own writings are available and he has written his own memoirs in which he has shed ample light on his relationship with God Almighty, how He guided him towards accepting Ahmadiyyat, acquiring religious knowledge and subsequently dedicating his life. Even some of the incidents, which he narrated to various people, and some of the things, which people have written about him and sent to me are written in great detail. It is not possible to give a detailed account of them or to present them in their entirety. These are very faith inspiring incidents. There is so much information about his circumstances, his life, his services and his character, that one could compile a book. In my opinion, Majlis Khuddamul Ahmadiyya Pakistan could fulfil this task in a more befitting manner.
Nevertheless, at present, I will speak briefly about the aforementioned dervish-like individual, who was a revered member of the Community, life-devotee, missionary and a scholar; one who practiced what he preached and was a waliullah [friend of Allah]. He is a role model for life-devotees and missionaries in particular and for every Ahmadi in general.
Now is not the time to give a detailed account of this
I will speak briefly on what various people have written about his life and character later on. Although Osman Chini Sahib was known as “Osman Chini”, his full name was Mohammed Osman Chung Sai Chou. (more…)
