asalaamu ‘alaykum wa rahmatullaah,
i was just posting to ask everyone to please make du’aa for your brother Abu Talhaa Daawood Burbank and his wife, who both passed away recently in what seems to be a bus fire.
our brother was very active in the da’wah and he particularly used to give much importance to the works of our beloved Shaykh al-Albaani, and translated many benefits, may Allaah have mercy on them both. Allaah had made him a key to much khayr, and all praises and thanks be to Allaah.
and all praises and thanks be to Allaah who has honored him and his wife by giving them the death of martyrs (due to fire), and by taking their souls in the sacred state of ihraam, and in the land of tawheed. Allaahu akbar.
we are truly saddened by their departure, innaa lillaahi wa innaa ilayhi raaji’oon, Allaahumma ‘jurnaa fi museebatinaa wa khluf lanaa khayran minhaa
i leave you now with the most excellent work i read from the brother’s translations:
Extracts from two of Shaykh al-Albaani’s works in refutation of those who declare the covering of the face and hands to be obligatory upon the woman:
“The decisive refutation which silences those who contradict the scholars, and display harshness and fanaticism, and make it binding and obligatory upon the woman to cover her face and hands; and is not satisfied with their saying that it is a sunnah and something recommended”
“The Muslim Woman’s Jilbaab”
