We were saddened to hear the news of the martyrdom of Sheikh
Ramadan Al-Bouti, may Allah show him mercy.
Shaykh Usama al-Sayyid al-Azhari posted the following
regarding the noble death of Shaykh al-Bouti: "He was martyred while was
explaining the tenth verse of Surah Ali 'Imran. When the explosion happened, he
embraced the Qur'an to his chest, and when they tried to move him, he fell in
prostration and they were unable to lift him for awhile."
The official word from the Syrian ‘government’ that it was a
suicide bomb that killed him. This is nothing further from the truth. He was
gunned down in the masjid that he was teaching in whilst teaching Quranic commentary.
Look at this picture and you can see bullet holes in the wood frame before the
Habib Ali al-Jifri about Shaykh al-Bouti, Rahimahullah: “I
spoke to him on the phone two weeks ago and the last thing he said to me was:
"Only a few days of my life remain and I shall breathe the air of
Paradise; do not forget your brother in your prayers."
He wrote many works that have benefits the Muslims who have
read them. Fiqh Al-Sirah and La madhabiyyah being two exceptional ones.
Sheikh Muhammad Al-Yaqoubi has been one of many scholarly voices
who have expressed their sadness upon hearing this news.
One of the saddest things that it is common place now. The
attacking of scholars by the uneducated masses. This is nothing but mere partisanship
and its a major sin. So those who took part in such vile behaviour should
repent from their actions.
This killing is nothing but a cowardly act from a
government that is falling apart at the seams. The blood of such a scholar is
never spilt except that those responsible will be given the swiftest punishment.
A scholar is a sign of Islam and those ignorant people who
harm them are but showing their dislike for the religion that they claim to be
a part of.
He was buried next to the grave of Salahuddin Al-Ayyubi (may Allah show them both mercy).
We would like all those reading this to read
fatiha for him, the Syrian people and the Muslims.
