May Allah have Mercy on our Ulema

    انا لله وانا اليه راجعون

    It is with great sadness that we learn that senior scholar of hadith, Shaykh Yunus Jaunpuri, has passed away. Based in Sahranpur, India, he was the world's foremost scholar of hadith and the teacher of many senior ulema from around the world.

    May Allah have Mercy on him, Shaykh Yunus studied and taught Sahih al Bukhari for half a century. His demise leaves a huge void in the Ummah. May Allah forgive him for his shortcomings and grant him an abode in the highest parts of Jannah. Ameen.

    'The example of the scholars on earth is that of the stars in the sky: when they appear, the people are guided (they navigate using the stars), but when they disappear, the people get confused and lost.'

    [Abu Muslim Al-Khawlani r.a.]

    Senior Madinah-based scholar, Shaykh Ismail Badat, has sadly also passed away. Like Shaykh Yunus, he was a close student of Shaykhul Hadith Maulana Zakariya Rahimahullah. May Allah illuminate his grave and grant him the highest abode in Jannah. Ameen.
