Mufaddal was feted for his exemplary humanitarian and charitable contributions across the world and his leadership role in fostering interfaith dialogue as well as peace and harmony among the peoples of Kenya, the wider East Africa region and the world at large.

His fondness for the country and his faith and confidence in its potential is reflected in his establishment of a campus of Aljamea-tus-Saifiyah, the Dawoodi Bohra community’s prestigious institute of higher learning, in Nairobi.
