As Salam Aleykum Wa Rhametullah,
Abit late, given that the death date I have read was 13. Feb. 2007.
A man I have come to know through his Biblical knowledge, a renowned scholar of Greek, New Testament and Old Testament Bible, who wrote prolifically on these subjects.
Allah gave him a grand ripe life of 93 years and 4 days if I am not mistaken, and his reckoning is with Allah. Nevertheless;
Verily! You (O Muhammad SAW) guide not whom you like, but Allāh guides whom He wills. And He knows best those who are the guided.
May Allah grant us the mercy of dying upon Islaam.
