The world remember this wonderful and great Qutb of the Tariqah Balaawi al Habib Abdul Qadir bin Ahmed Assegaf. After almost 5 years he left this world, the good he had done for the ummah will not be forgotten. He is descendant of Prophet sallahu alaihi wa salam. He was named by the late Qutb, the composer of Mawlid Simtud Duror, Habib Ali al Habsyi. When his mom was pregnant of his brother, Habib Ali al Habsyi gave the name Abdul Qader but his brother passed on. When his mother pregnant again, Habib Ali al Habsyi said put the name Abdul Qadir. He will be pious servant who devote to Allah and his life with the light of knowledge. Now I recalled, the day when I was at Masjid Riyadh, Solo for the haul of Habib Ali al Habsyi we got the news of Habib Abdul Qadir bin Ahmed Assegaf passed on. At first, I was like disbelief. It caught me off guard as you know most of the time we did not expect the unexpected to happen but it is Allah who will decide what will happen to this world and to us. It is sad moment for many of us remembering him.
