Cairo, Egypt - Wednesday May 24, 2012 Sheikh Abu Ishaq Al Huweni [updates & corrections]
The sheikh was reported to be in serious condition after going to Germany for treatment of his diabetes. It seems his leg has been amputated. We are awaiting further information while praying to Allah to improve his condition, ameen.
Corrections and updates for information on our beloved sheikh Abu Ishaq Al Huwayni are as follows:
1. His condition is not dangerous anymore alhamdluillah
2. His left leg was ampuated, but not in the hospital while in Germany.
Here's a summary of the translation of the article posted on Arabic news website:
News reports in Egypt said that sheikh Abu Is-haq Al-Huwayni had his leg amputated as a result of diabetes complication.
The sheikh has left the intensive care unit.
A resource has mentioned to "The 7th Day" newspaper that the sheikh's condition is due to his diabetic illness, in which he has traveled for treatment last year in Germany.
Later a reliable source close to sheikh Abu Is-haq said that his condition has improved greatly, and that the doctors have amputated his left leg 4 days ago - and not on Monday -
Sheikh Muhammad Hussein Ya'qub said that he received a call and went to visit the sheikh in the hospital to visit the sheikh. Sheikh Ya'qub then asked sheikh Al-Huwayni permission to leave, in order to present his live TV show - in which upon sheikh Al-Huwayni asked sheikh Ya'qub to deliver a message to the believers:
"Deliver the Salam to the Muslims and the believers on my behalf, and tell them that I love you for the sake of Allah. Tell them that if I have harmed anyone or oppressed anyone, or was rough with anyone on any day, then I ask him to forgive me.
Tell them that If I was rough on anyone, that I was only intending the Shari'ah and the Deen and the victory of the Sunnah, and Allah knows best that I have exhausted my life in His love and the love of His messenger in the hopes of His mercy"
