Renowned Syrian scholar and former Guest Imam of Masjid Al Haram, Makkah, Sheikh Muhammad Ali Sabuni has returned to Allah.
Muslim News findings revealed that Sheikh Sabuni, the author of many valuable books, including Safwat Al Tafsir, died on Friday at Istanbul, Turkey. Aged 91.
Shaykh Sabuni (رَحِمَهُ ٱللَّٰهُ) is probably the most reliable Mufassir of our age. Shaykh Muhammad Ali al-Sabuni (رَحِمَهُ ٱللَّٰهُ) said, "I wrote more than 50,000 pages of Tafsir with this hand of mine”. That was the calibre of this great man of Allah! ❤️ https://t.co/cSVzFv1Mpi
