Shaykh Mustapha Zughlool departed this sinful world yesterday Wednesday 5th July, 2017.
An astute scholar and prolific writer, he was the proprietor of Daar ud-Da’wah Institute of Arabic and Islamic Studies, Isolo, Lagos State. He authored many Islamic books.
Shaykh Zughlool was a great Islamic scholar, an indefatigable preacher, a mentor primus inter pareil, a humanist par excellence and an exemplary leader nulli secundus.
He was a great teacher and an outstanding researcher. He stands on the same pedestal as the late Shaykh Adam Al-Ilori. An incompatible team-player, he will be remembered for his great sense of humour, his unequalled power of delivery and his unparalleled eloquence. An exceedingly simple personality, his humility and generousity know no bounds.
The death of Shaykh Zughlool is a great loss to the Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC). He was our father, our mentor, our friend, our sponsor and above all, our spiritual pillar. We are already asking ourselves, “Who will replace this man?” We are mourning. We are devastated.
We console Nigerian Muslims to patiently bear this momentous loss since it is written that every soul shall taste of death (Glorious Qur’an 3:185).
Our hearts are with the family today. We share in their grief. We pray that Almighty Allah will give them the fortitude to bear the loss. May Allah forgive Shaykh Zughlool, have mercy on him and grant him al-Jannah Firdaus.
