The Karaan Legacy

This collation of Fatawa is our humble attempt at honouring a legacy of service by the Karaan family, father and son, Mufti Yusuf and Mufti Taha, spanning 50 years, nearly half a century.

Mufti Yusuf Karaan embodied an ethos of hard work and service. He would drive 40 minutes from Strand to our offices in Athlone every day. His commitment and dedication may never be matched again.

Mufti Taha Karaan’s outstanding feature was his brilliant mind. He was an intellectual giant admired around the world. While most scholars spend a lifetime mastering a single science, Mufti Taha mastered several Islamic sciences, even calligraphy.

We are currently in the process of digitising Mufti Yusuf’s handwritten fatawa and publishing the Fatawa of Mufti Taha, so that the world may benefit for years to come. May Allah bless them, raise their rank and accept their efforts, Ameen.
