Ustadh Usama Canon Death – Obituary, Funeral, Cause Of Death
Renowned Islamic teacher, daee, and mentor, Ustadh Usama Canon passed away Tuesday following a battle with Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).
Born and raised in California, Ustadh Usama Canon embraced Islam in 1996. He then embarked on a journey of studying various Islamic Sciences under some of today’s foremost scholars in the United States, Morocco, Egypt and Yemen.
Ustadh Usama served as the Outreach Director and an Arabic Instructor at Zaytuna Institute, as well as a Muslim Chaplain for the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation. He was also the Founding Director of Ta’leef Collective, a community based non-profit focused on assisting converts to Islam and creating healthy social and sacred spaces.
In 2017, he was diagnosed with the degenerative neurological disease ALS, the news which devastated Muslims all over the world, who benefited from his work.
Adam Kelwick, a British Muslim scholar and an aid worker said this about him, “he was known as an inspirational, eloquent, well-dressed person who was able to translate Islam, not from Arabic into English, but from the tradition into relevance today.
Many people will consider his establishing of the Ta’leef Collective in the US as his biggest achievement, however, let me tell you this, he established much more than that. He would travel frequently and build people across the world. Many of whom, including myself, have taken the path of love and service and Shaykh Usama has been an important part of that supporting, guiding and helping me and countless others along the way.
…May he receive mercy and forgiveness from his Lord and be admitted to the best of places in the best of company.”
