Saalih ibn Raashid al-Huwaymil narrates on the authority of one of the trustworthy [people]:

One day, one of the [hajj] pilgrims who came from one of the Soviet States entered the dwelling of the Shaykh (Ibn Baaz) in Minaa, and when he saw him he said:

“Are you, Shaykh ‘Abdul-’Azeez ibn Baaz?”

And the Shaykh replied in the most humble manner:

“Yes, I am ‘Abdul-’Azeez ibn Baaz.”

Upon this, the pilgrim conveyed his salaam to him, embraced him and kissed his forehead and said:

“By Allaah, I used to pray that Allaah does not cause me to die until I see [meet] you.”
