About Shaykh Muhammad Sharif al-Yaqoubi Alayhi Rahma

Sayyiduna al Shaykh Shareef al Yaqoubi Alayhi Rahma was one of the Abdaal of Shaam. Besides being a great scholar, he was the Imam of the Malikites in the Grand Umayyad Mosque in Damascus. The day he passed, Damascus’ shops closed mourning his death and the city followed after his funeral. Before the birth of Shaykh Ibrahim al Yaqoubi Alayhi Rahma, Shaykh Shareef Alayhi Rahma suggested to his brother, Shaykh Ismail Alayhi Rahma[as they were a Scholar] to wear the turban [imama] of the Ulema. Shaykh Ismail rahimahullah refused, opting for seclusion. Shaykh Shareef Alayhi Rahma then said to Shaykh Ismail rahimahullah, “We will keep this turban for one of your sons.” Shaykh Ibrahim Alayhi Rahma was born later and inherited the rank of his uncle [Shaykh Shareef Alayhi Rahma], then the rank of his father [Shaykh Ismail Alayhi Rahma].
