Hamza Yusuf,  and his family on the passing of his father.  May Allah give him and his family patience during this most difficult time.  We love him and will always keep our beloved brother and comrade in our prayers. 

"

During his stay with us, he always joined in prayer with my family. A few weeks ago, he said the shahadah with his physician, Dr. Asad Tarsin, and requested that he be buried as a Muslim. I washed his body with my son and two close friends yesterday. We will bury him this morning. I want to thank everyone who has extended condolences to me and my family. I would ask simply for a prayer for his salvation. "
Thank you.

A Message from Hamza Yusuf

My father, David Hanson, passed away at 8:00 p.m. on the 16th of April, 2016 at the age of 89. He left the world in a good state. He was born into great wealth and advantage, and was afforded an excellent education. At the age of 17, he volunteered to join the Air Force at the height of World War II and served for four years. 
He was a good father, and the single most well-read person in the Western canon I have ever met. The Huntington Library gave him a small cubicle, where he carried on his work on Elizabethan manuscripts. My last conversations with him were about the Liberal Arts, of which he was a life-long student. He lived with me on and off for the last few years and remained independent until the last few weeks of his life. 
During his stay with us, he always joined in prayer with my family. A few weeks ago, he said the shahadah with his physician, Dr. Asad Tarsin, and requested that he be buried as a Muslim. I washed his body with my son and two close friends yesterday. We will bury him this morning. I want to thank everyone who has extended condolences to me and my family. I would ask simply for a prayer for his salvation. 
Thank you.

We are sorry to report that the father of Hamza Yusuf, Professor David Hanson, passed away Saturday night.
إِنَّا لِلّهِ وَإِنَّـا إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعون
Inna'lillahi-Wa'Inna Ilahi-rajioon.

Below is a tribute, written by Elizabeth Hanson, Hamza Yusuf's sister.

Our condolences to the entire Hanson family. We kindly request that you read Al-Fatiha or say prayers for him. [Admin]

I'm taking the liberty of digressing from the topic of education to share my thoughts on a situation that has consumed every day of my life for the past seven weeks.
