Family source said the late Islamic scholar would be buried tomorrow, Tuesday, November 5, in India where he died in strict compliance with the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammed (SAW).

A statement signed by the Publisher of Muslim News, Rasheed Abubakar, notes that we received with great shock, the death of our brother, Mudathir Sanuth.

He would be remembered for his contribution in spreading Islamic knowledge through Deen Comminications, the Publisher of Naseehah and Legacy, initally titled as Deen Digest.

“O Allah, forgive and have mercy upon Bro Mudathir, pardon him, and make honourable his reception. Expand his entry, and cleanse him with water, snow, and ice, and purify him of his sins as a white robe is purified of filth.

“O Allah, exchange his home for a better home, and his family for a better family, and his spouse for a better spouse. Admit him into the Garden of Paradise , protect him from the punishment of the grave and the torment of the Fire”.

Allahuma ameen.

  1. We take solace in the promise of The Almighty; …”every soul shall have a taste of death and we are going to test you from that which you love”…… now the test has come for the family and us all, we are in the need of His absolute comfort☹.

    May He grant bro. NS the loftiest of abode and lighten the grave he’s to be lowered to today and make it a Shelter of bliss and a place for the angels of peace to watch. May He make his meeting with his family easy and possible on the day nothing matters except His Rahman and Mercy, ameen.
