Sheikh 'Abdul Majeed Zaakir, a teacher to Sheikhs Jaabir (Rahimahullah), Humaid, and Sudais, passed away two days ago.
"I think he was almost in 80's and till his last strength he was teaching Quran. When I visited him, I could see flocks of Saudis just coming to learn from him from quite distant places in Riyadh. They would be stunned at his expertise in tajweed and fine details. Its quite popular in Riyadh, that anyone who has learned tajweed from him, could be highly recommended in big masjids for being an imam. He had a huge janaza- MashaAllah till whereever you could see. He was one of the pioneers that came to Saudi Arabia around 35 years back and started the thafeez schools that we see in most of the masjids of Saudi Arabia. May Allah (SWT) grant him Jannah-tul- Firdaus for his service to Quran in KSA. Ameen"
