May Allah (swt) accept the work of Dr. Israr Ahmad, forgive him, and grant him the highest position in Firdous. The ummah, and especially the people of Pakistan, have experienced a huge loss with the passing of one of our scholars.
“Truly, Allah does not remove Sacred Knowledge by taking it out of servants, but rather by taking back the souls of Islamic scholars [in death], until, when He has not left a single scholar, the people take the ignorant as leaders, who are asked for and who give Islamic legal opinion without knowledge, misguided and misguiding”
(Sahih BukhariÂ – Fath al-Bari, 1.194, hadith 100)
