Deoband, U.P.:  The new Hijri year 1432 came with a sad news for Darul Uloom Deoband and its alumni spread all across the world. Maulana Marghoobur Rahman, Mohtamim (Rector) of the great institution, died on 8 December in his hometown Bijnor at 10:45 am. He was suffering from various diseases and was bedridden for the past several months. He was 96 and one of the most senior contemporary Ulama of Deoband.

Maulana Marghoobur Rahman was born in 1914 in Bijnor. He came to Darul Uloom Deoband in 1929 and studied under the guidance of Shaikhul Islam Maulana Hussain Madani and other great Ulama. He was appointed as member of the Shura (Executive Body) of Darul Uloom Deoband in 1962. Later, after Hakimul Islam Qari Muhammad Tayyib was unjustly ousted in 1981, he was assigned the post of Mohtamimship which he continued to hold till his death. His janaza was brought from Bijnor to Deoband. His funeral prayer was held in Deoband late in the evening and he was buried at Mazar-e Qasmi.
