Shaykh Dr. Nur al-Din Itr of Aleppo, has passed away in Damascus today.-- Shaykh Dr. Muhammad Bin Yahya al-Ninowy

Inna lillah wa inna Ilayhi raji'oon.
With eyes filled with tears and sorrow hearts, we can confirm that our Shaykh and teacher; Shaykh Dr. Nur al-Din Itr of Aleppo, has passed away in Damascus today.
Shaykh Nur al-Din was considered the highest living scholarship in Hadith sciences in Syria, he is also an Ustadh Musharik in Ulum al-Tafsir. The Shaykh, may Allah Ta'ala forgive him, reward him, and grant him Jannah, was the nephew and son-in-law of our late Shaykh Sayyidi Abdullah Siraj al-Din al-Husayni who was the major influence in his academic and Tazkiyah growth.
ِAmong the most beautiful books Shaykh Nur al-Din authored are: Manhaj al-Naqd fi Ulum al-Hadith, and I'lam al-Anaam, among other innovative scholarly works. The Shaykh was Hanafi in Fiqh and Hasani in family origin, with a calmness and a smile that almost never leaves his face and a stunning humbleness. He kept giving lectures until recently when illness overwhelmed him. He never left Syria from 70's after he taught in al-Madina al-Munawarra, preferred to struggle to positively contribute to the situation in Syria instead (like his Shaykh and father-in-law), and moved from Aleppo to Damascus for the University department job which he held, visiting his home city regularly and giving lectures in its Masajid. His sessions were filled with Nur (his name), ilm, and humbleness.
The departure of scholars of such caliber is a sign to the Ummah to collect itself and work harder to try to catch up with the legacy of our Salaf, may Allah Ta'ala grant them all His mercies.
May Allah Ta'ala forgive our Shaykh Nur al-Din, grant him His Mercies, and assemble him with the Prophet sallallahu Ta'ala alayhi wa aalihi wa sallam in Jannah al-Firdaws with all of us, ya Rabb al-Alamin.
