Du`a request For Passing of Hajjah Safyah & Sheikh Nuh Ali Salman

Dear Sisters and Brothers, Asalamu `alaikum (Peace be upon you),

إنا لله وإنا إليه راجعون
inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji`un
To Allah We Belong and to Him We Return (Qur'an, 2:156)

The Muslim Educational Trust would like to extend its deepest condolences to Brother Karim Al Wail and his family for the loss of his mother.

Brother Karim's mother, Al Hajjah Safyah Al Wail passed away yesterday, Sunday December 26th in Sanaa, Yemen at the age of 85. May Allah ta`la bless her and grant her the highest ranking in Jannah, ameen.

"O Allah, forgive our living and our deceased, our present and absent, our young and old, our men and women. O Allah, whomever You give life to, let him/her live on Islam and whomever You give death to, let him/her die on Imán." (Tirmidhi).

The Prophet  may Allah bless him and give him peace, said, “The scholars are the heirs of the prophets.” Last Sunday, December 19, 2010, one of the world’s greatest scholars, Sheikh Nuh Ali Salman al-Qudah passed away. Thousands attended his funeral in Ajloun, Jordan, including scholars, royalty, government officials, and others who loved him dearly.

He served as both the Grand Mufti of Jordan and the Mufti of the Jordanian armed services. In addition, he was the Jordanian ambassador to Iran and the director of the Fatwa Council for the United Arab Emirates.

It is said that a scholar should have knowledge, experience, and wisdom. No doubt, Mufti Nuh embodied all three. He spent his life serving the Ummah of Sayyidna Muhahmmad, by fulfilling the Quranic verse, “It is only those who have knowledge among His slaves that fear Allah” [35:28].

We, at Qibla (Sunnipath), all had the opportunity to witness and experience this first hand. He was the first scholar to review and approve our curriculum. Also, toward the end of his life, he answered questions live during a special program entitled, “Question Time,” which he covered various high-level topics including adoption, in-laws, and children.

Many of the Qibla staff attended his funeral and went the following day to visit his family to show our respect. Mufti Nuh was a Shafi jurist and perhaps nothing more accurately describes him than the words of Imam Shafi himself, “You say you are but a soul but in you lies the entire universe.”

"Allah will exalt in degree those of you who believe, and those who have been granted knowledge'' (Qur'an 58:11)



  1. Inna lillah wa inna ilahi wa raji'un.

    OK, um, I got this news as well, via my local institution which is also called The Muslim Education Trust, but I guess this organization shares its name with the one in Britain, whose link is provided above?
