Shaykh Abu Hassan al-Kurdi passes

Inna Lillahi Wa Inna Illayhi Raji'un.

The Eminent Syrian Scholar, Sheikh Abu Hassan al-Kurdi has left this world.

And we are at a loss with his departure.

He leaves a great legacy for anyone who aspires to study the Qur'an and generations of men, women and children who carry his chain back to our Liege Lord Muhammad, Peace and Blessings be upon Him.

May Allah bestow His grace upon us that we reach the states of the awliyaa', who when they pass from this world, the earth itself mourns their death.

Pray for us and for him, and that we might be with him in the hereafter.

Ameen. Wa biLlahi Tawfiq.
