The end of an era. It's telling that the announcement appeared on Twitter:

[Middle East Eye, Yusuf al-Qaradawi: Scholar-activist who helped inspire a revolution in Egypt ](https://www.middleeasteye.net/news/yusuf-qaradawi-scholar-activist-egyptian-revolution)

"Throughout his career as a public intellectual, his approach to Islamic law - one that combined scholarship and political activism - and his ability to communicate these ideas in plain language, would earn him millions of followers."

[Al Jazeera/MSN, Influential Muslim religious leader Yusuf al-Qaradawi dies](https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/world/influential-muslim-religious-leader-yusuf-al-qaradawi-dies/ar-AA12fBCB)

"Al-Qaradawi, who formerly made regular appearances on Al Jazeera Arabic to discuss religious matters, was highly critical of the coup that overthrew Egypt’s first democratically elected president, Mohamed Morsi, in 2013."

I've written about al-Qaradawi and social media in my books.
