Inna Lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji’un.
May Allah grant Sheikh Saleh Al-Shaiba Jannah al-Firdaws and comfort his family. His lineage ties back to the esteemed Sahabi, Uthman ibn Talha (RA), and his family’s story has a rich legacy etched into the annals of Islamic history.

Access to the Kaaba has always been controlled by a designated keyholder, a role passed down from one individual to another.

During the conquest of Makkah, the key to the kabaa was forcibly taken from Uthman ibn Talha (R.A.), Yet, when the Prophet Muhammad (saws) entered the Kaaba, a divine command was revealed inside the Kaaba itself:

‘Indeed, Allah commands you to return trusts to their rightful owners…’ (Quran 4:58).

This incident cemented the sublime moral fiber of the Prophet (saws) and is a testament to the truth of Islam. At arguably the biggest triumph of the early Muslims against their biggest enemies the Quraish, the Prophet is reminded that even the Key to the Kabaa cannot be unjustly taken.

When Uthman ibn Talha heard that he was commanded to keep the key, he loudly proclaimed the shahadah. The Prophet’s assurance that Uthman’s family would forever hold the keys has stood the test of time, symbolizing an unbroken chain to the time of the Prophet. As we reflect on Sheikh Saleh’s legacy, we are reminded of the enduring virtues of trust and righteousness of Islam that bind us across generations
