Quote:
By the decree of Allāh, Hadhrat Mawlana Muhammad Gora sahib (father of shaykh Riyadul Haq) departed from this world at 11:28pm Friday 12 July / 4 Ramadan 1434 AH.

He was known for his simplicity piety taqwa hospitality and humbleness. He was a light for many people. The Ummah has lost a pioneer of ilm and amal.
May Allah grant him jannatul firdaus and make his qabar like a garden of paradise. Aameen.

Re: Leicester radio station

Had a radio prog today before Iftar, and then had to break the sad news of Ml Gora's demise on air after Tarawih. The man was a true legend, father of Riyadhul Haq et al, so utterly genuine, sincere, and beguilingly simple and humble - and a man of deep and profound concern for the community and Ummah. Teacher to literally thousands, including most of Leicester's ulama, in his 70's he was still so concerned at the ignorance of the average man that he'd teach 50-60 yr olds how to read Quran everyday after Asr. When he learnt some guys he taught in maktab as kids years ago went to jail for dealing, he was distraught and inconsolable and began walking the streets to lovingly talk to any youngsters hanging around. A senior scholar, and scholar-maker, he'd be seen all day on the streets of Highfields talking to the average Joe, enquiring after their wellbeing and gently encouraging them to good. He'd say, the oldies have nowhere to go except the mosque now, but it's the young we have to care for - it's in their hands that we have to leave our Deen and tradition; we have to make sure they'll be ready to take these on after us. An old-school alim, he was so forward looking and farsighted, encouraging mosques as recently as just a few weeks ago to hold iftars and invite their non-Muslim neighbours in so they could see and share in the beauty of our Deen and observe our prayers and sharing in the mosque beyond stereotypes. We have truly lost a teacher, elder, and gentle and humble father in the passing of Ml Gora.May Allah reward him beyond measure and allow us to continue his legacy after him."
