This particular issue tests the consensus of the ulema based party. Their top leaders for the likes of Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat and Abdul Hadi Awang, was rooting for the word to be used by Malaysian Catholics in their Malay version of the Bible. Haron however, opposed this idea by saying that it is an abomination for permitting such action. This caused a split in PAS as Haron was deemed as a prominent Islamic scholar. Haron stated that he did not agree to allow non-Muslim to use the word Allah.
Haron died on 15 September 2016 at the Stanford University Hospital in San Francisco, California, United States age of 76 due to coma. His body was buried at Five Pillars Farm, a Muslim Cemetery at 1761 Laughlin Rd, Livermore, California. Before his departure to the United States, he told his family and party leaders that he wanted to be buried in the country where he hold the last breath. Muslims believe in having a quick burial following death is the best and not putting the deceased and his family members in further suffering. His family executed to his wishes instead of flying the body on a long haul flight for customary burial on the home soil.
Haron Din was awarded Darjah Kebesaran Datuk Paduka Mahkota Selangor (DPMS) from Sultan of Selangor in 2016. However, his son received the award, on behalf of Haron Din, from Sultan of Selangor.. He also being awarded posthumously special 'Maal Hijrah' award from Yang Di Pertuan Agong, Tuanku Abdul Halim Mu'adzam Shah for his contribution to Islam at national and international levels.
