Assalam Alaikum Warahmatullah Wabarakatuhu


We would like to inform you with deepest sorrow and regret that our dearest Maulana Mufti Ishaq (Rahimahullah) has passed away on 28-Aug-2013 early morning around 3 am PST.


Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji'un (إِنَّا لِلّهِ وَإِنَّـا إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعونَ)

What was the cause of his death?

The best answer is his time was over. There was absolutely no illness. As usual he got up for Tahajjud around 2 am on 28-Aug-2013. He set his prayer mat. Then he lied down again and never got up. He used to pray often this:

اللَّهُمَّ أَصْلِحْ لِي دِينِي الَّذِي هُوَ عِصْمَةُ أَمْرِي، وَأَصْلِحْ لِي دُنْيَايَ الَّتِي فِيهَا مَعَاشِي، وَأَصْلِحْ لِي آخِرَتِي الَّتِي فِيهَا مَعَادِي، وَاجْعَلِ الْحَيَاةَ زِيَادَةً لِي فِي كُلِّ خَيْرٍ، وَاجْعَلِ الْمَوْتَ رَاحَةً لِي مِنْ كُلِّ شَرٍّ

" O Allah, set right for me my religion which is the safeguard of my affairs. And set right for me the affairs of my world wherein is my living. And set right for me my Hereafter on which depends my after-life. And make the life for me (a source) of abundance for every good and make my death a source of comfort for me protecting me against every evil."
