Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji’oon.


The Shaykh passed away yesterday, subhaanAllah. May Allah ta’ala forgive him his sins, accept his deeds, and grant him Jannat Al Firdaus. Ameen.


May we continue to benefit from the legacy of knowledge he has left behind. Ameen.


SubhaanAllah – surely, it is something to reflect upon that within just a few months Shaykh Bakr Aboo Zayd, Dr Saleh As-Saleh, and now, Shaykh Yahya An-Najmee have left us.


We ask Allah ta’ala preserve our ‘Ulama and allow us to benefit greatly from the works of those who have past.  Ameen.


Wa Salamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatu

He is wary of his self, that it should overcome him for what he desires, of the things that will anger his Master. He does not backbite anyone. He does not look down upon anyone. He does not abuse anyone. he is not happy at the afflictions of others. He neither transgresses upon anyone, nor envies him.

Whosoever Turns Away …

But whosoever turns away from My Reminder (i.e. neither believes in this Qur’ân nor acts on its orders, etc.) verily, for him is a life of hardship, and We shall raise him up blind on the Day of Resurrection.”
