Kamran Shariff: An inspiration to us all
This was related by Ustadh Farid Dingle:
“Today, I received an email from the brother of one of our finest students, Kamran Shariff, informing me that he had passed away. Kamran was from a religious and scholarly family, he would often mention to me that his brothers were in South Africa studying in one of the old Dar al-Ulums.
Being disabled himself, he was unable to travel to study with them, so, despite the awkward hours and hardship it cause to his weak body, he took advantage of SunniPath and had been attending our Arabic classes for the last year, always doing the work and always striving to understand. His breathing was very weak and his speech impaired but he would keep asking until he really understood.
Kamran, as his brother informed me, ‘with kalima on his lips he breathed his last’ and went to the mercy of his Lord on the eighth day of the blessed month of Ramadan, 1429.”
We would like to ask everyone to make dua that our student, Kamran Shariff, continues with his Arabic in Jannatil Firdous surrounded by angels as he was in this world. We also ask that you pray that Allah makes us all die in the path of Sacred Knowledge.
This story served as an important reminder to all of us at SunniPath about striving to learn scared knowledge dispite adversities. I pray that the story inspires all of you as well.
This is one of many similar stories about SunniPath students who despite disabilities such as blindness, paralysis, or in some cases, terminal illness, strive to learn Sacred Knowledge until their very last breath with the only means at their disposal: online learning.
It also serves as a reminder about the dire need to make knowledge accessible to everyone, no matter where they are or what difficulties they face. We at SunniPath are thankful for the blessing of being able to provide so many different people in different geographical locations and with different abilities the ability to study Sacred Knowledge where ever they may be. If you would like to help us in this vital work please fill out this volunteer form to let us know just how you would be able to help.
