With heavy heart we share this
It is with great regret and remorse that we just found out that our Shaykh, Honorable teacher and our spiritual father Hazrat Maulana Mumtaz ul Haqq has left this world. He was shot and killed.
انا لله و انا اليه راجعون
Here is how our colleague shared the incident. He is current student and ustad of the same madrasa hazrat mawlana taught at.
Myself and Ml. Zakaria were at the scene. He was teaching with us at the Jamiats Dārul Ulūm. He left us and this incident happened on his way home. Multiple shots to him and his car whilst he was driving.
He had nothing besides a bag of books, amongst them Sahīh al-Bukhārī.
We are greatly saddened at the loss of this ocean of knowledge.
His last lesson was the tafsīr of the second verse of sūrah al-fath which speaks of Allah's forgiveness.
May Allah accept his years of teaching and grant him what he ended off imparting, the mercy and forgiveness of Allah azza wa jall.
