Sheikh Muhammad AlShareef: A Nation Builder (Dr. Yasir Qadhi)

My dear friend, founder of Al-Maghrib Institute, Ustadh Muhammad AlShareef, just passed away yesterday.

I am at a loss for words.

When I first arrived as a new student in Madinah, it was Muhammad AlShareef who mentored me and gave me advice.

Walking between classes, he told me of his vision one day to open up a teaching seminary and spread this knowledge we were learning to thousands of others.

Years later, when he did open it up, he reached out to me while I was a graduate student, and convinced me to join.

I owe him more than words can describe. He was a true visionary, and his legacy will be felt for generations to come.

He had no previous illnesses or diseases, but death can come to any of us at any time. Allah forgive him and raise his ranks!
