Dr Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin, head of the worldwide Dawoodi Bohra community, arrived in Dubai on Tuesday. He was received by government officials, dignitaries from Sri Lankan and Indian embassies, prominent businessmen and members of the community.
Dr Saifuddin departed the airport for the Al Masjid Al Burhani Complex in Al Qusais where thousands of Dawoodi Bohras accorded him with a warm welcome. They felicitated him on his recently celebrated 74th birthday in Surat, India. Syedna Saifuddin addressed the audience briefly and thanked the UAE government for their hospitality and the arrangements made for his visit.
Dr Saifuddin is in town to inaugurate the recently renovated 35-year-old Al Masjid Al Saifee in Deira. The inauguration is planned for Thursday evening followed by Maghrib prayers. The newly renovated complex has been extended to cater for the growing number of community members in the region.
Kinana bhaisaheb Jamaluddin, the Sultan Al Bohra's representative in Dubai, said: "The masjid and its recently completed renovation project represent the community's long history in Dubai and its continued renewal and growth in this homeland. We hope that the masjid is now ready for prayer and reinvigorated ibaadat for many more decades to come."
