Author of “Fortress of the Muslim” Passes Away

The author of the world famous book “Fortress of the Muslim”, Shaykh Sa’id Ibn Ali Ibn Wahaf Al Qahtaani has passed away from Cancer yesterday. His book, otherwise known as “Hisnul Muslim” in Arabic was the go-to book for supplications (Duaa) from the Quran and Sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ. The book included supplications for almost every situation and circumstance a Muslim will find in their life. The book was distributed to millions around the world free of charge and was also translated into a multitude of different languages. Millions of other copies were also sold throughout Saudi Arabia at the small price of 1 Riyal (Approx $0.27 USD). It was the Sheikh’s request that the book was widely and easily available for all Muslims, and he undoubtedly saw this take place in his lifetime. The book is also available online widely and as an App for mobile devices. We ask Allah to make his book a means of ongoing charity for him as he had asked for in the opening chapter of the book.
“I ask Allah the Glorious, the Mighty, by His beautiful Names and by His Sublime Attributes to accept this as having being done sincerely for His sake alone. I ask Him to bring me its benefits during my lifetime and after my death. May those who read it, those who print it, or have had any role in distributing it, benefit from it also. Surely He, the Glorified is Capable of all things. May the peace and blessings of Allah be upon our Prophet Muhammad, and upon his family and Companions and whoever follows them in piety until the Day of Judgement”. Sa’id Ibn Ali Ibn Wahaf Al Qahtani
We ask Allah to have mercy on the Sheikh and grant him the Highest level of Paradise. We also pray for him with the following supplication found in his book under the chapter of “Prayers for the Deceased”.
اللهُـمِّ اغْفِـرْ لَهُ وَارْحَمْـه ، وَعافِهِ وَاعْفُ عَنْـه ، وَأَكْـرِمْ نُزُلَـه ، وَوَسِّـعْ مُدْخَـلَه ، وَاغْسِلْـهُ بِالْمـاءِ وَالثَّـلْجِ وَالْبَـرَدْ ، وَنَقِّـهِ مِنَ الْخطـايا كَما نَـقّيْتَ الـثَّوْبُ الأَبْيَـضُ مِنَ الدَّنَـسْ ، وَأَبْـدِلْهُ داراً خَـيْراً مِنْ دارِه ، وَأَهْلاً خَـيْراً مِنْ أَهْلِـه ، وَزَوْجَـاً خَـيْراً مِنْ زَوْجِه ، وَأَدْخِـلْهُ الْجَـنَّة ، وَأَعِـذْهُ مِنْ عَذابِ القَـبْر وَعَذابِ النّـار “O Allah, forgive and have mercy upon him, excuse him and pardon him, and make honourable his reception. Expand his entry, and cleanse him with water, snow, and ice, and purify him of sin as a white robe is purified of filth. Exchange his home for a better home, and his family for a better family, and his spouse for a better spouse. Admit him into the Garden, protect him from the punishment of the grave and the torment of the Fire.” Sahih Muslim
