Speaking to Radio Islam, committee member Faizel Sallie said Imam Malick fell ill while he was on Hajj (pilgrimage) as a spiritual leader this year.
“I got word that Imam got ill, and when I enquired with them while they were on Hajj, He downplayed the whole situation to me, he got a bit of heat stroke because it was very hot, when he came back, doctors examined him and they detected a tumor on the brain.”
Sallie added that the manner in which the community supported Imam Malick and his family during this difficult period has been overwhelming.
Imam Malick will be buried at the Newclare cemetery after Esha salaah.
