The Shaykh, the Muhaddith, Abdul-Ghaffaar Hasan passed away on Thursday 22 March 2007 at the age of 94.

innaa lillaahi wa innaa ilayhe raaji'oon...

We ask you all to remember the Shaykh in your prayers and we ask Allaah ('Azza wa Jall) to cleanse the Shaykh of his sins and reward him with al-Firdaws, aameen.

Dear all

Assalamu alaikum

My grandfather, Sheikh Abdul Ghaffar Hasan, died on Thursday at the age of 94 (in Islamabad).

He was a scholar of Hadith and was lecturer of Hadith at Madina University before he retired.

In fact, he was called to Madina when Sheikh Nasiruddin Albani retired, and so replaced his post. His students numbered thousands, including my father Sheikh Suhaib Hasan...

It is known that even Sheikh Ibn Baz would sometimes sit in his classes for his incredible knowledge of hadith.

I went to see him 4 years ago and was amazed at the clarity of his mind and memory. He advised me to teach students in my own home (as my children were very young) which is how my Friday study circle came into being.

I had the honour of translating his book “The rights and duties of women in Islam”

His funeral took place in Islamabad after Jum’ah…my father led the prayer.

May Allah give him Jannah.

The decrease in true scholarship is one of the signs of the final Day...Muslims cry when our shuyukh die, but do nothing to learn from them when they are alive.

Wassalam

Khola

And if anybody wants more information about him, here it is:

one of our great scholars from ahl us sunnah passed away. may Allah (SWT) have mercy on him and forgive him his sins. Indeed the passing of our scholars is very sad. It is with great sadness that I announce the passing away of Shaykh ‘Abd al-Ghaffar Hasan this morning in Islamabad, Pakistan. The Shaykh has been ill for some time now. You will probably know of the Shaykh in that he was the father of our beloved teacher Shaykh Suhaib Hasan and thus the grandfather of Imam Usama Hasan of Leyton, East London.
This is incredibly sad news for many of us who benefitted from him and not just for the obvious news of the loss of more of our senior scholars as we slip further into times of ignorance.
Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji’un.
Please take some time out to ask Allah ‘azza wa jall to shower His Mercy upon him.
The Janazah prayer will be held tomorrow in Islamabad after the Jumu’ah prayer insha’Allah, almost certainly at King Faisal Masjid for those fortunate enough to be there to pray over him.
Rahimahullah rahmatan wasi’ah.
