CHENNAI: The Prince of Arcot, Nawab Mohammed Abdul Ali, on Monday condoled the death of the King Fahd bin-Abdul Aziz of Saudi Arabia.
In a message here, he said: "Muslims in the world over will always remember him for his services to the Haj pilgrims, and for his kindness, justice and love he showed to the people, particularly to the poor and downtrodden."
Describing the King as a "God-fearing personality, well-loved, most respected and admired by all who knew him," Nawab Mohammed Abdul Ali said his personal interest and contribution to Islam would ever be remembered. The massive expansion of the two holy mosques at Makkah Al-Mukarrama and Madinah Al-Munawwara in Saudi Arabia, during his regime was tremendous and historic, he pointed out.
He recalled that his father and other members of his family were the royal guests of the King during the Haj in 1982. "I was also honoured to be the Royal Guest of His Majesty, along with my family, during Haj, many times, and it was a great privilege for me to have called on the King personally, which enabled me to pay my deep respects and have his kind blessings in person."
