We would like to say heartiest congratulations to Shaykh Allie Khalfe on the successful launching of his book: "A Fellowship of Faith" - a detailed commentary of the Surah Fatihah on 6th August 2017. The book is prefaced and endorsed by the Grand Mufti of Cairo and Dar al-Ifta al-Misriyyah.
The event was graced by Umar Kemp. Below is a short intro of Sidi Umar Kemp, in the words of Shaykh Allie expressing gratitude for the launch of his book - A Fellowship of Faith.
"Our senior, Umar Kemp is in his 90s and is a treasure and pillar of strength and wisdom in our Cape Legacy. He is a living Ghazalian and the most senior Ba'Alawi scholar in perhaps the entire Southern Africa, having sat before the master, Shaykh Muhammad Salih Hendricks who was a contemporary of the Awliya of Makkah, including Sayyidi Bakri Shatta, Shaykh Bakr Bab Sayl, Shaykh Umar Ba Junaid, Sayyid Abbas Al Maliki and many others, all of whom drank from the basin of Sayyid Ahmad Zayn Dahlan (may Allah bless them all). He blessed our book launch this morning with his gentle heart and firm resolve. It is their duas that we seek and their sincerity that brings barakah to places they enter so that all the books were sold out this morning. Thank you all for your support and may Allah bless all of us with His infinite Mercy and Compassion."

Alhamdulillah, though we may be far apart, though we are yet to meet,
the jemaah in Cape Town is close to our heart.
