Shaikh ‘Abdul-Muhsin al-‘Abbad Sick
October 14, 2009 7 Comments
I was browsing on Facebook yesterday and noticed that my good friend, Ali Sabir, had posted a link to a video on the FIKS (Fundamentals of Islam & Seminary) website. The video had a message and request from one of the brothers from the organization, Abu Taubah, for visitors to supplicate to Allah for Shaikh ‘Abdul-Muhsin bin Hamad al-‘Abbad; may Allah preserve, protect him, and give him good health.
According to their report, the shaikh has been ill for the last little while. So ill, apparently, that he hasn’t held any classes for the past week or so. Hearing this news saddened me quite a bit as having translated several things by the shaikh (a couple small treatises, a few excerpts from a couple of his other books, and several statements he’s made pertaining to different issues), he’s become one of my favourites. Please supplicate to Allah to give the shaikh good health and to allow him to recover quickly from his illness. He’s one of the few remaining massive mountains of Islamic knowledge we have among our scholars today. Losing him will be a tremendous loss to the Muslim community.
Here’s the link to the video for those who want to watch it.
