Teacher of Scholars, Allama Mufti Muhammad Sharfuddin (Ra) has passed away

The Founder and Principal of Jamia Al-Karam,Shaykh Muhammad Imdad Hussain Pirzada, on behalf of everyone associated with Jamia Al-Karam expresses his sadness and condolences at the passing away of the teacher of scholars, Shaykh-ul-Hadith Allama Mufti Muhammad Sharfuddin (ra), who has recently passed away whilst in Pakistan. Indeed we are for Allah, and indeed to Him we are to return.

The respectable Mufti Sharfuddin (ra) was a man of true knowledge, smiling character and genuine humbleness. He spent a lifetime teaching the sacred sciences in various institutions, and Jamia Al-Karam was honoured to have him as a teacher and resident scholar from 1996 to 1998 at the current campus of Eaton Hall in Retford. A number of graduates of Jamia Al-Karam studied various sciences and classical texts under his tutelage during those years. He was present in 1997 on the occasion when Shaykh Pirzada hosted the late Quaid-e Ahl-e Sunnat, Imam Shah Ahmad Noorani Siddiqui (ra), for his historic visit to the institution.

We pray for the divine acceptance of respectable Mufti Sharfuddin’s services to religion, knowledge and people, and for his high rank in Paradise in the company of the sublime Messenger, Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). His legacy and memory remains within Jamia Al-Karam and in the hearts of his students.
