إنا لله وإنا إليه راجعون

His passing was confirmed on social media today with the following statement:

To Allah we belong and to Him we return.

Today, Shaykh Muhammad Alshareef – founder of DiscoverU and AlMaghrib – suddenly passed away.

This man was a giant in our Ummah, taught us the power of Dua, and to always rely on Allah. He raised a nation of Dua makers in all of us.

So today, we ask Allah to make us all a hujjah for him in the Akhirah, for everything he taught us to be counted in his scale of good deeds with him, and that Allah beautifies his reception, forgive him his sins, and enter him into Al-Firdaws.

Shaykh Muhammad was healthy with no illness, but life is not promised.

He was someone who took full advantage of his time spending it on what mattered most and what would lead to goodness in the Akhirah.

He has always said that the identity he aspires to be is that of a righteous man (as Najashi was described by the Prophet ﷺ – “today a righteous man has died”). We pray that with Allah, he is entered among the righteous. A true nation builder.

May all of his work continue to be a sadaqah jariyah for him until the Day of Judgment.

May Allah grant his family patience in this difficult time.

Please keep him, and his family, in your Duas.

At Al Quoz Cemetery in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, his Janazah Prayer will take place on Yawmul Jumu’ah (Friday) 23rd of Dhul-Hijjah, 1443AH at 5:30 p.m.
