Sunni Iranians with the son of the lion of Pakistan: Ehsan Elahi Zaheer

Ehsan Elahi Zaheer (Urdu: احسان الہی ظہیر) (31 May 1945 – 30 March 1987). He hails Sialkot and was born into a deeply religious trading Punjabi family of the Sethi clan. Shaykh Ehsan was a polyglot and fluent in Urdu, Punjabi, Arabic, and Persian. He studied under many students, most importantly Shaykh Ibn Baz.
In 2012, Shaykh Ibtisam Elahi Zaheer, the son of the lion of Islam and Ahlus-Sunnah of Pakistan, Ehsan Elahi Zaheer (may Allah have mercy upon him), visited us in London, UK, in our modest studio (Toweed TV, formerly known as Wesal Farsi TV).

The director of the channel, the Iranian Sunni Shaykh Dr. Abdul-Raheem Mollazadeh (Abu Muntasir al-Balushi) recorded a live show with him and Shaykh Ibtisam was very patient with us, he stayed for hours and we discussed many topics, including the assassination of his father who was murdered by Iranian backed Shia terrorists in Pakistan who considered him a thorn in their necks due to his many devastating refutations of Shi’ism.
While Zaheer was giving a speech, a bomb that had been planted on the stage exploded, killing him, his family accused Iran Backed Shia terrorists of killing him. Upon the request of Saudi Grand Mufti Abd al-Aziz ibn Baz, King Fahd ordered that Zaheer be transferred to the kingdom for treatment at The Hospital of National Guards. Medics could not save him from his severe wounds. His funeral prayer was held in Medina in Saudi Arabia, attended by millions including the country’s main Islamic scholars, and he was buried in Al-Baqi’ cemetery next to Imam Malik.

Just a few days ago the grandson of Shaykh Ehsan Elahi Zaher, Dr. Shiekh Subayyal, contacted our studio and informed us about his Islamic centre in Lahore, Pakistan that is under immense pressure as the Iranian regime found out that Iranian Sunnis study over there as well and complained to the Pakistani authorities. May Allah punish these Neo-Safawi Rafidis for their crimes and enmity towards Ahlus-Sunnah.

The Rafidah wanted to silence Shaykh Ihsan, yet his da’wah has been spreading and his books have been translated into numerous languages, including in Persian where they are low-key distributed by Sunni Iranians.

Here a clip (with a Persian nasheed in the background) showing the moments before his assassination. A bomb was planted on the stage by the Rafidi Neo-Safawi terrorists.

And here a clip of Shaykh Ehsan Elahi Zaheer reciting Persian poetry:

May Allah have mercy on this lion of Islam.

I’ve spent some time and gathered all books of Shaykh Ehsan Elahi Zaheer in the English language, ready to download. Notice how some of the books are of poor quality and translated in the 80s (!). If any of the ‘Wahhabi-petrodollars’ accusations were true, then his books would be translated into 100 languages in top-notch quality, yet most of his books haven’t even been translated. I’d advise you to purchase the books on the list, hardcover is always better.
