On 8th Rabi al-Thani, we commemorate the life of the great caller to Allah, Habib Muhammad al-Haddar.
In order to know and understand our teachers we need to know their teachers. Habib Muhammad was one of Habib Umar bin Hafiz’s main teachers. Habib Umar spent ten years at the Ribat (institute) which Habib Muhammad established in the Yemeni city of al-Bayda. He has a hand in all the openings that came with the establishment of Dar al-Mustafa, Dar al-Zahra and many other blessed projects around the world.
The great scholar Habib Zayn bin Sumayt taught at the Ribat for twenty years before settling in Madinah. Habib Muhammad also taught and nurtured the likes of Habib Ali al-Jifri and Habib Kazim al-Saqqaf.
Habib Muhammad’s male and female children, grandchildren and students continue to call people to Allah to this day with the same passion and concern that Habib Muhammad had.
May Allah benefit us by him and those who inherited his knowledge.
