Hamza El Din

Innalilahi Wa Innailayhi Raji’un

I just saw this tonight on the Zaytuna Website. Hamza El Din was a great musician. His music is so peaceful – it is the kind of music that pierces your heart when you listen to it.

Inna Lillahi wa Inna alayhi rajiun

We are saddened to announce that the great Oud player, da’ee, and dear friend of Zaytuna Institute, Hamza El Din passed away yesterday in California. Sidi Hamza was an exceptionally beautiful man who was loved by our shuyookh and people all around the world. His masterful and inspired musicianship and his beautiful character represented the highest examples of the beauty that Islam can inspire. His work was a source of enrichment for a great many people worldwide and a door through which scores of people came to Islam. We are deeply saddened by his passing. May Allah give him the highest reward. Please make du’a for him and his family.
