Who was :-( Dr.Abdur Rahman As-Sumayt ?

Kuwaiti pioneer humanitarian activist and charitable figure Dr. Abdulrahman Al-Sumait died today, 15-08.2013.

Al-sumait struggled his way through the last few months of his life; traveling from Kuwait to numerous places including Germany in search of medical treatment for his ever worsening medical state.

In the morning of August 15, 2013 it was announced that Al-sumait had failed in his struggle against his heart condition.

Dr Abdur Rahman As-Sumayt. At almost sixty four years of age, he was a true luminary who strove to uphold and make the Word of Allah uppermost. More than seven million people are said to have accepted Islam through his efforts in Africa. He spent more than twenty nine years of his life propagating Islam in the African continent; participating in the construction of approximately 5,700 mosques, provisioning care for than 15,000 orphans, the drilling of around 9,500 artesian wells and the establishment of 860 schools, 4 universities and 204 Islamic centres. -


Life and Upbringing
His full name is Abdur Rahman bin Hamood As-Sumayt, a well-known Kuwaiti Islamic daa’ee (caller to Islam) and founder of the Kuwait based charity, “Direct Aid Organization” (جمعية العون المباشر) previously known as the Africa Muslim Agency (لجنة مسلمي أفريقيا). He served as its President of the Board of Directors as well as the Chairman of Research and Islamic Studies. Born in Kuwait in 1947, he was a qualified doctor specialising in internal diseases and gastroenterology, before becoming involved in charity work; graduating from the University of Baghdad with a Bachelors degree in Medicine and Surgery then going on to obtain a diploma in Tropical Diseases from the University of Liverpool in 1974 then completing his postgraduate studies specialising in internal diseases and the digestive system at McGill University in Montreal, Canada.
Throughout his life As-Sumayt was awarded a vast number of honours, awards, trophies and certificates, in acknowledgement of his efforts in charity work. This included one of the highest most prestigious awards, the King Faisal International Prize for Service to Islam; the beneficiaries of which also donated 750 Thousand Saudi Riyals as an endowment for the education of the children of Africa. The fruits of this endowment are visible today by way of a large number of Africans who received and are continuing to receive education at various universities throughout the continent.
The pursuit of his vision however was not always a smooth task, often he was faced with dangerous and perilous situations. As-Sumayt was the target of several unsuccessful assassination attempts by various armed militias perturbed by his wide reaching and overwhelming presence and influence amidst the poor and needy, as well as a number of close calls with the deadly cobra which almost took his life on more than one occasion in Mozambique, Kenya and Malawi, being saved by Allah each time. He was also subjected to the hardship of imprisonment, the worst of which came at the hands of Arab Ba’athists.
A quarter of a century of his life was spent in undertaking his charitable works in Africa, returning to Kuwait only for short visits or to receive medical treatment. He remained undeterred by obstacles and undertook a number of trips deep into the African jungles and subjected himself to the dangers and terrors of travel through its remote forests (in order to carry out his work). These were selfless actions which can be considered to be from the acts of a living martyrdom frequently subjecting himself to danger in his relentless efforts to bring peace, aid and relief to Africa; be it with a loaf of bread in his hand (food), or a lamp (essential supplies) or a book (education).
As Dr Sumayt advanced in age, his physical armaments began to weaken; his body afflicted by high blood pressure, diabetes and a number of blood clots (once in his heart and twice in the brain) as well as two bouts of Malaria. None of these affected his resolve as his spiritual armaments, the armament of faith with which As-Sumayt drew upon to fight his battles in the path of Allah for the weak, destitute and needy and to overcome his obstacles, remained strong, firmly lodged in his heart.

The Kuwaiti criminal court sentenced on Sunday four suspects to death for killing a Lebanese doctor with a cleaver in December last year.

Samir Yousef Jaber, 26, a Lebanese dentist born of a Kuwaiti mother, was repeatedly stabbed with the cleaver following a disagreement with the four young men at Avenues Mall.

Reports have said that the stabbing occurred when the men followed Jaber into the mall after engaging in a dispute with him over a parking space.

The victim was taken to hospital after the attack, but he succumbed to his wounds.

Murderer of Avenue’s incident caught, #kuwait #avenues


In below video, TV anchor is taking interview of Adel Alhashash (investigators) who explanied that how this sad incident of avenue happened and how police traced and caught this guy (above pic).

According to Adel Alhashash the argument started in parking spot (basement) of avenues mall, The killer was with three friends. They traced the victim, bought the knife from carrefour and stabbed badly to death.

Avenues has helped a lot to investigators by providing required CTV footages but the video was not enough clear to recognize the faces of victims but finally they identified one guy, concern investigator team approached to his home but finally he found from a camp in bneider.  he is 22 years old but remainning three guys still have not been caught.


A young doctor was hacked to death with a cleaver by four men at the Avenues mall late on Friday, allegedly over a parking dispute. The victim, 26-year-old Jaber Samir, a Lebanese dentist at Jabriya clinic whose mother is Kuwaiti, died a few hours later at a hospital. The suspected killer, a 22-year-old non-Kuwaiti, was arrested yesterday, but his three accomplices are still at large, according to Col Adel Al-Hashash, PR Director at the Ministry of Interior. Hashash said that after initial interrogations, the suspect said he and the victim had a dispute over a parking spot which angered him. The suspect then purchased the murder weapon from the mall, followed the victim and stabbed him to death.


Asked about enhancing the deployment of policemen in the Avenues, Hashash said the administration of the mall also shared part of the responsibility.”Our officers are present and we have an office at the mall along with first aid staff to deal with any emergency, but it is a huge mall. The Ministry of Interior had previously suggested and demanded from the mall management to install weapon detectors at all entrances of the mall, similar to the ones installed at hotels. However, they did not respond to our suggestion,” Hashash said.

Some eyewitnesses also said the attackers tried to harass a woman accompanying the victim. “The parents of these criminal teenagers and youngsters are responsible for their bad behavior. They have become careless and are not bothered about their children. They care little where their children go or what they do. If they were properly raised and had strict parents, they would not have dared to commit such a crime,” said 35-year-old Noora.

“Youngsters are able to find light weapons such as knives very easily across Kuwait. Since they always expect to land up in a fight, especially in the shopping malls, they always carry these weapons with them. Often, the result is fatal. Also, the victims and those who commit these crimes are usually very young,” said 28-year-old Ahmad.

Not applying the laws and resorting to wasta is the reason behind these crimes, according to 50-year-old Mahmoud. “Such a person can kill someone whom he doesn’t even know over a silly reason, just because he knows he will not be sentenced to death. If he knew he will get the death penalty, he wouldn’t commit such a crime. Also, wasta plays a great role, as many criminals believe their wasta links will save them even after a serious crime,” he pointed out.

Some regular visitors of this mall said they do not feel safe going there, especially during the weekends. “After the news about fights that I read on weekly basis, I am not surprised by anything. I do not like to visit the mall on weekends, but my daughters insist on going as they have school on other days and their friends are going. So I have to take them. But I cannot let them roam about alone and have to be with them all the time. Also, I always leave a mall before 10:00 pm as I feel it becomes more risky after some shops close,” said 42-year-old Manal.

MPs blamed the Minister of Interior Sheikh Ahmad Al-Humoud Al-Sabah. MP Safa Al-Hashem asked where Sheikh Ahmad was at a time like this, and warned against attempts to use any wasta in favor of the criminals. MP Yousef Al-Zalzalah said that this crime was an evidence of the inability of the government to maintain law and order in the country, and that some veteran officers at the ministry need to be shunted out. He also warned of more problems if the prime minister did not make changes in the Ministry of Interior and rectified the poor choices of ministers.
