Maulana Hafiz Qari Mohammad Qasim
Ansari sahib was born in Bhopal in the year 1957. As a student he showed keen
interest in Quran and learnt Quranic Phonetics and the art to recite Quran from
"Master of Qaris" Shaikh Qari latheefur Rahman Sahib, Yamani. He also
represented India at Makkah and Malasiya in the Years 1980 and 1983 and at
several other Qirath meets which had won him great Laurels.
Sahib was a student of Darul uloom,Islamia Arabia, Bhopal. He was an excellent
Qrator,Hafiz and Qari, besides that was also former Imam and Khateeb of Perimet
mosque which is one of the well known mosques of Tamilnadu.
He was living in Chennai with his family - wife and three children
in his flat. Eldest son is Hafiz. He served in the Periamet mosque for about 30
years. His Quranic tafseers given in Periamet mosque have been published by
interested people.His qirat was recorded and marketed.
After coming out from the responsibility of the Periamet
mosque, he was giving tafseer of Quran in masjids from time to time and
attending social functions. He led taraweeh prayers in every Ramadan in
Anjuman-e- himayat-e-Islam mosque.
Both in Periamet and Anjuman mosques people gathered in
large numbers to pray under him and listen to his recitation which is most
attractive in his sweet voice. He had a wonderful memory and his hifz of the
holy Quran was perfect beyond any doubt. Moreover his Jumma khuthba was also of
much interest to the people. He used to sermon to the point without indulging
in any controversy.He was for
unity of the different schools of thought. We miss him miserably.
May his soul rest in peace. Let us all pray for his maghfirath.
