After months of battling illness and exhaustion, al-Hajj Dedebaba Reshat Bardhi, head of the Worldwide Bektashi Community, parted from this life shortly after 2:00pm on the 2nd of April, 2011.
Dede Reshat was born on the 4th of March 1935 in village of Lusën, in the region of the northern town of Kukës. In 1944, as the destruction of war raged around him, Dede Reshat moved to Tirana with his family. It was there that he received both his secular as well as Islamic religion education.
Beloved friends, brothers and sisters – this week we entered the sacred month of Ramadan, insha’allah!
Rasool allah (SAW) has said “The first part of Ramadan is a mercy……………”

I am always amazed and pleased when I see the evidence of the upsurge of Islam in this country. I remember I read an article about the call that Islam has to people of Hispanic Origin in this country and elsewhere. I have several contacts in Mexico of people who have converted to Islam.
Dear brothers and sisters, this coming Friday night Allah will allow us to enter once again into the sacredness and blessedness of Ramadan Kareem insha’allah. This is one of the times of the year when all Muslims are united in this single quest.
