Mombasa, Kenya (Coastweek): Mzee Mwenye was a great 'Shiat' scholar who built up The Shiat School of Thought.

Allawy Ahmed Badawy, popularly known as 'Mzee Mwenye' passed away on 8th February at the age of ninety-one.

He established a thriving college that has attracted several youth from as far as Commoro islands to Lamu come learning the dogmas of Shiat Madh-haab.

He is the son of that great 'Sunni' scholar - Habib Swaleh Badawy who built Riyadha College about a hundred years ago which still attracts several students to Lamu.

Mzee Mwenye tremendously succeeded in having several hundreds of Lamu youths to be his staunch disciples who are spreading the teachings of Shiat Madh-haab' principles, not only at Lamu but also in many parts of the Coast.

He is a highly respected, influential reformist who deeply dedicated his life to promoting Islamic tenets of 'Shiat School of Thought and has made an indelible impact of his teaching.

He lived a simple, yet dignified life, ever surrounded by youth to whom he used to give pearls of wisdom.

He had a photographic memory that enabled him to be a great historian and Arabic grammarian.

When visiting Mombasa he would make a particular point to attend that famous evening conversational 'Baraza' - at Aswan Hotel, under his esteem and intimate friend, the late Sheikh Abdallah S. Jeneby.

He would give an impromptu lecture on the Shiat School of Thought.

He was a brilliantly articulate, eloquent public speaker whose deep knowledge of history gave very rich authentic material for his talks.

He has made history as a great scholar who brought to Lamu 'The Shia School of Thought' to which has earned several hundred young adherents.

May Allah rest his soul in Paradise.
