Sheikh Atabek Shukurov Nasafi

This is a picture of Sheikh Atabek (in the black hat and brown cloak) leaving the teaching rooms of Madina Masjid, Bradford.

Anyone who has lost a teacher knows how I feel right now and it is impossible to describe the loss of a teacher.

Knowledge is not cheap and it is not acquired without struggle. Looks like many of us took knowledge for granted and we will truly know the loss of knowledge when there is nothing left to go to.

They say a picture paints a thousand words so here are a thousand words left unspoken. The loss of a teacher is a loss of mercy.

    What do you mean lost a teacher? Sheikh Atabek said he had to attend a Scholars event/meeting last Friday (11/07/08) and would finish the seerah with us. Some of the other students did tell me Sheikh might go to Syria, but I am not sure if this is the case. You've got me worried.

  2. He may finish that class but that might be it. He no longer works for the foundation. I would not post something like that if it did not concern me.
