the Imaam, the Shaykh - 'Abdul-'Azeez
ibn Baaz (rahima-hullaah),
‘Abdullaah ibn Muhammad al-Mu’taaz narrates:
Muhammad Haamid who was the president of the group “As.haab
al-Yameen” in Eritrea said:
arrived in Riyadh on a cold night, and did not have any (money)
with which to pay for a hotel. So I thought about going to
Shaykh ‘Abdul-‘Azeez ibn Baaz’s house; the
time was 3 o’clock in the morning (and) I was hesitant,
but (finally) decided to go (to the Shaykh’s house).
arrived outside his old mud-style house and found someone
asleep by the gate. Having awoken, he opened the gate for
me and I conveyed my greetings to him ever so quietly so that
no-one (else) hears me since it was so late at night.
a short while, I saw the Shaykh himself descending from the
stairs with a pot of food. He extended greetings to me and
gave me the food, saying:
heard your voice and brought this food for you, assuming you
had not eaten this night”.
Allaah, I was unable to sleep (the rest of the night) due
to weeping at such noble manners”.”
