He returned to his Lord on Thursday night, 27 Muharram 1436 AH corresponding to 20/11/2014 CE. He was one of the members of Hizb ut Tahrir working during the darkest times of tyranny and oppression of the despot father, Hafiz Al-Assad. He was arrested during his rule for six years, from 1991 until 1997; he spent them patiently awaiting the reward from Allah. He continued upholding the call and sacrificing for it during the rule of the tyrant son Bashar, and particularly after the start of the blessed revolution of Ash-Sham, calling for the guided Khilafah upon the method of the Prophethood, sacrificing for the Dawah, trusting in the promise of Allah Azza wa Jal and in the glad tiding of the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم. This is how we saw him and we do not commend any one to Allah سبحانه وتعالى.
