Shaikh-ul-Islam Mawlana Abdol-Hamid, the president of Darululoom Zahedan and chairman of the Coordination Council of Sunni Seminaries in Sistan-Baluchistan mourned the loss of Shaikh-ul-Hadith Mawlana Mohammad Yousuf Husseinpour, the president of Ain-ul-Uloom Gosht, Saravan.
The official website of Shaikh Abdol-Hamid published his condolence message which is as following:
By the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
“Surely we all belong to Allah and to Him shall we return”
“The death of a scholar/Alim is the death of the universe”
The passing of Shaikh-ul-Hadith Mawlana Mohammad Yousuf Husseinpour, may Allah have mercy on him, the memorial of the predecessors and teacher of the scholars saddened me and my colleagues at Darululoom Zahedan.
The passing of this sincere scholar made the whole nation mournful. The absence of this pious scholar is a big loss for the entire Iranian nation and Muslim world. This tragedy made the responsibility of all Ulama, Islamic students and obliged people heavier.
Shaikh-ul-Hadith, may Allah put mercy on him, was an upright, skilled, sincere, humble, modest, simple-living and brave scholar. By teaching Islamic sciences for many decades, he served the society well effectively. He was a complete example of the predecessors and one of the unique personalities of our era.
He has trained good and capable students and his way will be maintained, God willing.
I’d like to express my condolences to all Sunnis, especially people of Sistan-Baluchistan province and Saravan district, teachers and students of Ain-ul-Uloom Gosht, his family and relatives and all kinsfolk and pray to Allah for his full forgiveness, higher position in the paradise and patience for the remaining family members.
Friday Imam of Zahedan and President of Darululoom Zahedan, Iran
