Sheikh Subayyal - News

We have received news that Sheikh Muhammad as Subayyal, imaam of Masjid al Haram for more than 40 years, is ill and currently in the Intensive Care at a hospital in Jeddah. He is 85 or 86 years old, and last lead 'Isha in Masjid al Haram in March 2007.

Update: The Sheikh is still in the ICU. There are rumors that he passed away, and it is not true.

May Allah have mercy on the Sheikh, reward him abundantly for his suffering, and grant him shiffaa. Ameen.

May Allah grant the Shaykh shifaa. he is respected not only for his recitation, but his knowledge and position. He was a member of The Council Of Senior scholars. shaykh Salih alfawzan studied under him. Also, he was president Of The Two Holy Mosque Affairs (the position Shaykh Sudais holds now) more than 20 years ago. Im grateful HR was available to record his final years of leading prayers in Makkah.

It is amazing to think that Shaykh Subayyil was still leading prayers in Makkah at the age of about 80. May Allah grant him shifaa and strength. Ameen

shafaahullah. I particularly liked the penultimate salah that he led, 29th march 2007, especially with Muadhin Ali Mullah doing the takbeers. There's something special about olden times recitations. As many say, 'Old is gold'.

His classic memorable recitations are of Surah Teen, He used to read that a lot in ishas. May Allah cure the shaykh

There is a article relating to the death of Sheikh 'Umar as Subayyal on this blog, is this a different imam to the one being mention here?

May allah grant rahmah and shifa upon sheikh subbayal.

I have a question to haramain recordings staff,
It is said that Sheikh Ali Abdur-Rahman Al-Hudhaifi, the Imam of Masjid-e-Nabawi, at Madina Al Munawwarah, during the Jumah'ah prayers on the 15th Zul Qa'dah, 1418 (13th March, 1998) he gave a khutbah (known as the historic khutbah) against the christians, jews and shias. The sheikh was then arrested for giving a khutbah which upsetted the saudi government and officials. I was wondering if you have the actual recording of the khutbah, if you do please update it on your website.
Jazakallah.

Sheikh Muhammad as Subayyal is the father of Sheikh 'Umar as Subayyal (Rahimahullah).

I don't think I have a recording of the khutbah of Sheikh Hudhaify's. I will check though.

IS this the shaykh that prays taraweeh in a wheelchair?

- HR Staff - said...

^ No. I'm not sure what that Sheikh's name is.

The Sheikh whom we now see on wheelchair was seen standing behind in past

May Allah Almighty give him Shifa.

Sheikh Muhammad as Subayyal was Imam of the Haram when Some rebels self pro claim Imam Mehdi tried to occupy the Holy Haram about 1980. Sheikh Muhammad as Subayyal led fajar prayer. After Fajar Prayer those rebel tried to occupy the Haram. These rebels had pistols, rifles. They said to Sheikh Muhammad as Subayyal to offer Bat on hand of the leader of the rebels who claim to b Imam Mehdi. Sheikh Muhammad as Subayyal refused to offer Bat. May Allah Almighty reward him on his braveness.

May Allah give him complete shifa and forgive all his sins.His contribution for spreading Allah's message is highly appreciable.
My grand father(age 90) is also one of the fan of Sheikh Subayil went into the shocking condition after listening the news about Sheikh because my grand father was present at the time when Sheikh Subayal kept the foundation stone of one of the biggest madarsah of Karachi in 1973.

Wow. I had always wondered who the Imaam was who lead the salaah during the false Mahdi incident.

May Allah bless Sheikh with His Mercy and Blessing Ameen

Please note, Imaam al-Hudathayfee wasnt arrested and he is not arrested at the moment. He is taken down from his position for his own security, and this information is from a reliable source from someone who personally knows the shaykh and meets him on a daily basis

So please refrain from discrediting the Saudi government, remember they are Muslim brothers and have the same rights as others over you, i.e do not slander or backbite them

Allaahu A'lam

- HR Staff - said...

They're talking about the '97/'98 khutbah and the arrest then, not the recent one. Correct, he was not arrested after his last khutbah. Allah knows best and may Allah forgive me what is wrong.

Anonymous said...

Lol at 'discredit' the Saudi govt. Like it or not they imprison many Mashaikh, brothers and sisters. Stop the excuse that Sheikh Hudhaifi retired for his own security, and this is also from reliable sources, the Sheikh was suspended for 2 years in 1998, he was never under arrest. That doesn't change anything though, just shows how much respect the so-called Saudi govt, and the puppet of U.S. 'Khadim al-Haramain' has for his own scholars. And please HR, allow this comment, people need to know as many visit this website, instead of getting false information on what really goes on.

- HR Staff - said...

Jazakallah khair for the correction regarding the arrest part.

InshaAllah let's leave it at that note regarding Sheikh Hudhaify since this post is about Sheikh Subayyal. :) Shukran.

Wa iyyakum, sorry for the off topic comment but just wanted to correct the comments above.

May Allah heal our beloved Sheikh Al-Walid Abu 'Umar Muhammad Al-Subayyal sooner than later and preserve him. He is truly a gem as an Imam and a scholar. I believe the last time Sheikh al-Subayyal led taraweeh was in 1406 or 1405, I am sure it's one of those 2 years. May Allah raise his rank with the best of people, with the Prophets, the Shuhada`a and the Salihin.
