Photo slide show of Sheikh Hussain:
was born in 1945 AD in Haifa, Palestine, and grew up in Beirut, a righteous
youth uncommon among his peers. Then he got acquainted with Shaikh Mukhtaar Al-`Alaayily, "ameen el fataawa", and studied under him for four years (together with Shaikh Salaah Fakhri). After that, they decided to dedicate themselves to the study of Islamic Sciences and asked their teacher's advice. Sheikh Mukhtaar directed them to Shaikh Saaleh Farfour's school in Damascus: Ma`had al Fath al Islaami.
After joining Ma`had al Fath, he made the acquaintance of Shaikh Mahmoud al Rankousi, may Allaah have Mercy on him. He accompanied him and used to attend his private lessons (at Dar el Hadeeth while still studying at Ma`had al Fath al Islaami). Later on, he also took the Naqshbandi way from Shaikh Mahmoud. (As years went by, his time became more and more dedicated to the service of Dar el Hadeeth, until there came years when he would daily walk almost half through the city of Damascus, from his house to Shaikh Mahmoud's house after the Fajr prayer, to walk with him to Dar al Hadeeth.) After he graduated from Ma`had al Fath, he did not return to Beirut (but remained at the service of Shaikh Mahmoud and Dar el Hadeeth, until the departure of Shaikh Mahmoud from this life, who appointed him his successor in the direction of Dar el Hadeeth.) He is currently assuming many responsibilities:
- Director of Dar el Hadeeth.
- Director of affairs for Lebanese students in Damascus.
- Teaching at Ma`had al Fath al Islaami.
- Imaam at the grand Mosque of "al Hanaabilah".
- Friday Khateeb at Masjid al Dulaamiyyah.
- Member in the society of al Fath al Islaami.
- Member in the society of Dar el Hadeeth.
(Furthermore, under his direction, and through his efforts, Dar el Hadeeth has witnessed the expansion and modernization long planned and sought for by his predecessor Shaikh Mahmoud, may Allah have Mercy on him. So we pray Allah to assist him and crown his righteous efforts with success, and to treat him and us as best befits His utmost Generosity and Kindness, aameen.)
