It has been narrated:
In my last meeting with him (rahima-hullaah), I narrated to him a dream which one of the brothers had.
In his dream the brother saw the Prophet (sal-Allaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam), so he (the brother) asked him: “If I find some difficulty in any aspect of the science of hadeeth, then who should I ask?”
The Prophet (sal-Allaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) replied: “Ask Muhammad Naasiruddeen al-Albaanee.”
Upon completing this narration, I saw the Shaykh cry profusely and he was continuously repeating:
“O Allaah, do not take me to account for what they say [about me], and make me better than what they suspect [of me], and forgive me for that which they do not know [about me].”
