99 years of age – Sh. Umar Kemp

At ninety-nine years of age, Sh. Umar Kemp is one of the oldest living murids of the Zawiya in Cape Town. He had the good fortune of sitting before, serving and kissing hands of every single Shaykh that served at the Institute, including the wali of the scholars of Makki, Shaykh Muhammad Salih Hendricks. If there was ever an example of what it means to combine humility and knowledge then he is that example. How fortunate we are here in Cape Town to be able to shake the hand, kiss the hand and receive the supplications of one who drank from the blessed spring of prophetic character and akhlaq, of the great masters and spiritual caretakers of the Haram in Makkah.
