Famous Sudanese reciter Sheikh Nurain Mohammad Siddique was killed in a road accident on Friday.
He was one of the most perfect and tender reciters of the Holy Qur’an. The accident happened in the densely populated Omduman area of the capital Khartoum.
In addition to Sheikh Nurain, three other Hafez of the Qur’an were killed. They are Ali Yaqub, Abdullah Awad Karim and Mohannad Al-Kinani.
The African country’s religion minister, Nasseruddin Mufreh, confirmed his death in a Facebook post.
“I am saddened by the death of Sheikh Nurain and Hafez in the three Qurans with him,” he said. Adduri Kirat was famous all over the world especially for its recitation. There is a flood of mourning on social media over his death.
One of my favorite reciters of the Qur’an, Sheikh Nurain Mohammad, is no more. I am devastated and hurt. A Twitter post in the Muslim Daily said that Sheikh Nurain was sadly killed on the road. May Allah forgive him and grant him Paradise.
