His family came to Jerusalem from Bukhara four hundred years ago, and their home has been a center for visiting Muslim pilgrims and visitors of all faiths since then. Sheikh Bukhari was a leading Muslim voice for peace and reconciliation in Jerusalem. He also hosted the Uzbek Cultural Centre of the Holy Land in his home. He passed away on May 31, 2010.
