Cheikh Abderrahmane El Djilali, one of Algeria’s greatest and most famous scholars has passed away this night. He was 103.
I am shocked. I can’t believe that we won’t see him again on TV on the eve of Ramadhan as we did for so many years now.
Cheikh Abderrahmane El Djilali was a scholar, faqih and a historian. His “Histoire générale de l’Algérie” is a must read.
