إنا لله وإنا اليه راجعون

It is with great sadness that we inform you that one of our elders and Shouyoukh has passed into the mercy of Allah. Shaikh Abdur Rahman al-Sheybaan (RA) was born in the year 1918 and passed away on the 12th of August 2011 at the grand age of 93 after a lifetime of serving the deen in numerous positions of office and responsibility.

اللهم اغفر له وارحمه وعافه واعف عنه وأكرم نزله ووسع مدخله واغسله بالماء والثلج والبرد ونقه من الخطايا كما ينقى الثوب الأبيض من الدنس اللهم أبدله دارا خيرا من داره وأهلا خيرا من أهله اللهم أدخله الجنة وأعذه من عذاب القبر ومن عذاب النار

With his (RA) passing another bright star of the Islamic world fades.

Our Beloved (salahu alayhi wasalam) said in a Hadith that is agreed upon:

إن الله لا يقبض العلم انتزاعا ينتزعه من العباد، ولكن يقبض العلم بقبض العلماء، حتى إذا لم يبق عالما، اتخذ الناس رؤوسا جهالا، فسئلوا، فأفتوا بغير علم، فضلوا وأضلوا

“Indeed, Allah does not take away knowledge by snatching it from the people but He takes away knowledge by taking away the scholars, until there remains no scholar and the people take the ignorant as their leaders. Then they are asked and give religious judgments without knowledge, they go astray and cause other to go astray.”
