The cleric travelled to Saudi Arabia last week for Umrah and died yesterday in Makkah, his son Malam Ahmad Aminuddeen said.
Ahmad said before his father travelled to Saudi Arabia he has shown some sign of illness for nearly three months but that did not stop him from going to mosque and leading prayers and doing Tafsir translation of the Holy Qur’an since the beginning of Ramadan.
Until his death, Aminuddeen has been known for Islamic preaching. He was the founder of Da’awa Foundation in Kano.
He is survived by two wives, 18 children and 15 grandchildren.
His brother Malam Sunusi Abubakar said his brother Aminuddeen was born in 1947.
He was described among his brothers as “a father not just a brother.”
“He was a great father he never tires of asking people to always do the right things. You cannot go to him without wearing a cap and whenever he sees you doing something wrong he will correct you instantly,” one of his children said.  
Sheikh Aminuddeen was with the department of Islamic Studies at Bayero University, Kano.
