Assalamu Alykum Warahmatullah.

The man who was described as: Ibnul Qayyim of recent times has passed away earlier today.

In addition to being the president of the International Islamic Fiqh Council, Shaikh Bakr bin Abdullah Abu Zaid RA was a member of the permanent fatwa committee in Saudi Arabia.

His vast collection of writings covered almost all aspects of religion, from Aqeedah, Quraan and Hadeeth … to Adab, Usool and linguistics.

He even has a book on the Islamic etiquettes of using the phone! And another on scholars who never married!

Allah SWT has granted him a rare ability of eloquent composition and strong Bayaan.

One of his greatest virtues was that he was among the first to begin the fight against the recent Fitna of Irjaa'.

He was trusted by great scholars of AhlulHadeeth, including Shaikhs Bin Baaz and bin Utheimeen.

All we can say: Inna Lillahi Wa Innaa Iillahi Raji'oon.

May Allah SWT grant Abu Abdillah forgiveness and a place better than his place in this life.
Inna lillaahi wa inna ilayhi raji'oon. :(:(

Shaykh Dr. Bakr Ibn ‘Abdullaah Abu Zayd Ibn Muhammad

He is the noble Shaykh Bakar Ibn ‘Abdullaah Abu Zayd Ibn Muhammad Ibn ‘Abdullaah Ibn Bakar Ibn ‘Uthmaan Ibn Yahyaa from the tribe of Banee Zayd al-Qadhaa’iyyah. He was born in 1365 A.H./1944 C.E.

He studied the Noble Qur’aan until the second year of infant studies, then moved to Riyaadh in 1375 A.H./1954 C.E. where he continued his studies, then to the educational institute, then the Faculty of Sharee’ah (at the University of Imaam Muhammad) until he graduated in 1387 A.H./1966 C.E. as an associate with first class.

In 1384 A.H./1963 C.E. he moved to Madeenah where he held the post of custodian of the general library within the Islaamic University.

Alongside his curriculum studies he used to frequent a number of knowledge (seeking) circles of a number of scholars in Riyadh, Makkah and Madeenah.

In Riyaadh, he studied Meeqaat under Shaykh Saalih Ibn Mutlaq, and studied 25 points from Maqaamaat al-Hareeree, which his Shaykh had already memorised in entirity. In fiqh, he studied the book of transactions (al-Buyoo’) from al-Hajaawee’s “Zaad al-Mustaqni’”.

In Makkah he studied the book of Hajj from al-Majd Ibn Taymiyyah’s “al-Muntaqaa” under Shaykh ‘Abdul-’Azeez Ibn ‘Abdullaah Ibn Baaz (rahima-hullaah) during the Hajj season at al-Masjid al-Haraam in 1385 A.H./1964 C.E.

He sought authorization from a teacher in al-Masjid al-Haraam, namely Shaykh Sulaymaan Ibn ‘Abdur-Rahmaan Ibn Hamdaan, so he personally wrote an authorisation for him to teach all the books of the Sunnah.

In Madeenah he studied Ibn Hajar’s “Fath al-Baaree” and “Buloogh al-Maraam” under Shaykh Ibn Baaz (rahima-hullaah), including a number of theses in fiqh, tawheed and hadeeth in his house. In short he frequented him for 2 years after which Shaykh Ibn Baaz (rahima-hullaah) authorised him to teach these books.

Since moving to Madeenah, he also frequented Shaykh Muhammad al-Ameen ash-Shanqeetee (rahima-hullaah) for approximately 10 years until the Shaykh’s (rahima-hullaah) death during Hajj in 1393 A.H./1972 C.E. In tafseer he studied the Shaykh’s “Adwaa. al-Bayaan”, and also the Shaykh’s thesis “Aadaab al-Bahth wal-Munaatharah”. He also studied Ibn ‘Abdul-Barr’s “al-Qasd wal-Umam” and some of “al-Inaabah”.

In all he has received approximately 20 authorisations (to teach different books of knowledge) from the scholars of Makkah, Madeenah, RIyaadh, Morocco, Syria, India, Africa and other than them.

In 1399 A.H./1978 C.E., he studied at the Supreme Court of Justice as an associate, and achieved a Masters degree, and in 1403 A.H./1982 C.E. he achieved a Doctorate.

After graduating from the Faculty of Sharee’ah in 1387 A.H./1966 C.E., he was selected as a judge for the city of Madeenah, whereby a Royal Decree was issued to appoint him as such. He continued in this post until 1400 A.H./1979 C.E.

He was also appointed as a teacher in the Prophet’s Masjid in 1390 A.H./1969 C.E. until 1400 A.H./1979 C.E.

In 1391 A.H./1970 C.E. a Royal Decree was issued appointing him as an imaam and khateeb of the Prophet’s Masjid, and he continued in this post until the beginning of 1396 A.H./1975 C.E.

In 1400 A.H./1979 C.E., a decree was issued by the Council of Minsiters selecting him as general procurator for the Minsitry of Justice, and he continued in this post until the end of 1412 A.H./1991 C.E., when a Royal Decree was issued appointing him to the rank of excellence, and in turn a member of Permanent Committee for Islaamic Research and Fataawa and also the Council of Senior Scholars.

In 1405 A.H./1984 C.E. a Royal Decree was issued appointing him as representative of the Kingdom at the International Islaamic Fiqh Assembly, whereby he was selected as president of the Assembly.

In 1406 A.H./1985 C.E., he was appointed a member of the Fiqh Assembly at ar-Raabitah al-’Aalam al-Islaamee (Muslim World League).

The Shaykh has approximately 66 publications to his name ranging from hadeeth, fiqh, Arabic and others, with the number consistently rising due to his on-going efforts.

Read his biography inshaAllaah. Not much of his works are available in english, but there is translation of an excellent book on the etiquettes of seeking knowledge. Shaykh Uthaymeen even done a sharh of the book on audio cassette!
