Assalamu Alaykum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh , We pray this finds everyone well, wrapped in Allah’s mercy and steadfastly traveling the path to eternal felicity, in sha Allah.

The Wali Shaykh Yusuf Utum from Jordan has Passed away today at the age of 124. Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji’un.

The Man who Symbolised a Century
A eulogy in honour of the Saint Shaykh Yusuf Utum who passed away today in Jordan, aged 124 years.

Shaykh Muhammad Al-Yaqoubi

We commiserate with the entire Muslim World upon the demise of Shaykh Yusuf Utum – A prominent figure, known for his knowledge, piety and devotion. He was a senior scholar, or rather, the head of senior scholars in Jordan. He lived for nearly 125 years, yet he was always cognisant, always turning to His Lord, occupied with disseminating knowledge and offering guidance to scholars and students.
Without a doubt, he was a man who epitomised a nation; a single man who embodied a century of knowledge, experience and devotion. He lived honourably and passed away revered. With his passing away a great generation of scholars, from Jordan and elsewhere, came to an end. He was a student of Shaykh Badr Al-Din Al-Hasani and Shaykh Ali Al-Daqar.

The noble Shaykh returned to the Mercy of Allah Almighty today. His funeral prayer will be performed tomorrow after Asr prayer. We extend our deepest condolences to his children, grandchildren, relatives, to His Eminence Shaykh Abd Al-Karim Khasawneh – Grand Mufti of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan – to all of the Scholars of Jordan and to the Shaykh’s students; praying to Allah that He envelope the Shaykh in His Mercy, His Pleasure and bless all of his family and students.

Verily, to Allah we belong andverily to Him we will return.
