Maulana passed away in his hometown Bijnor where he was staying for past several months due to prolonged illness and weakness.
He was about one hundred year old. He held the post of Mohtmim (Rector/VC/Mudir) of Darul Uloom Deoband for thirty years (from 1981-2010). This period is bright era of the history of Darul Uloom Deoband. Darul Uloom Deoband made extraordinary progress under his administration and it developed leaps and bounds. Numerous huge buildings constructed, the old ones were renovated, several educational departments were launched and many reforms were introduced in the education system.
Maulana Marghoobur Rahman graduated from Darul Uloom Deoband in 1352 (1932). He was appointed as Member Shura of Darul Uloom Deoband in 1382 (1962). Later, after the 100th anniversary of Darul Uloom Deoband in 1982, he was assigned the post of Mudir. He undertook the post in a critical time and served Darul Uloom in exemplary style with his god-gifted ability and insight.
We appeal to all well-wishers, madrasa authorities and those related to Darul Uloom to pray for his forgiveness and isal-u-thawab.
