"Cape Town will be graced with the presence of Habib Umar bin Hafiz in March, a direct descendant of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) and one of the world's top Islamic scholars. Bin Hafiz is a 39th generation descendant through the Holy Prophet's grandson Imam Hussain (ra). The alim was born in Tarim, Hadramaut in Yemen, and raised in a household that possessed a tradition and lineage of Islamic scholarship and righteousness, his father being the famous martyr, scholar, and caller to Islam Al-Habib Muhammad bin Salim. Bin Hafiz is the founder of the Dar al-Mustafa, one of the finest Islamic learning institutions in the world, based in Hadramaut."
How can one verify if this is true or a fraud? Any of the enlightened minds on the forum about this man?
