His death on Thursday night, January 19, 2023, at his home after Salatul Isha was widely circulated on social media.

Sheikh Rashaad regularly appeared at important Muslim gatherings to speak about shariah and other religious topics. He also answered calls from Muslims in Ghana particularly in Kumasi, giving theological rulings and counsel on everything from basic daily issues to more complex ones.

Muslims in Ghana are deeply affected by his passing, and many of them have resorted to social media to express their sorrow.



The National Chief Imam, Osmanu Nuhu Sharubutu, and Sheikh Rashaad were the last two living students of Sheikh Awudu Dan Tano, of blessed memory.
