On the Passing of Shaykh Murabit al-Hajj

On-the-Passing-of-Shaykh-Murabit-al-Hajj

He told me several times, “Hamza, this world is an ocean, and those who drown in it are untold numbers. Don’t drown.” I have never seen anyone like him before him or after him, and I don’t think that I ever will. May Allah reward him for his service to this deen and his love and concern for the Muslims. He was never known to speak ill of anyone.

He said to me, “And what is man other than a comet that flashes brilliant light for a moment only to be reduced to ashes.” Shaykh Murabit al-Hajj is a master of the sciences of Islam, but perhaps more wondrous than that, he has mastered his own soul. His discipline is almost angelic, and his presence is so majestic and ethereal that the one in it experiences a palpable stillness in the soul. As the Arabs says, “the one who hears is not as the one who has seen.” May Allah grant him the highest level of paradise. Ameen.
