Do what you have to and
I am going to give the lesson...
appropriately reference this quote to: www.fatwa-online.com,
the Imaam, the Shaykh - Muhammad
ibn Saalih al-'Uthaymeen (rahima-hullaah),
it has been narrated by Muhammad Raabi' Sulaymaan:
year (1420 A.H.), there occurred a memorable incident during
the month of Ramadhaan
whilst Shaykh Ibn 'Uthaymeen was giving his daily lessons
specialist doctors who were supervising the Shaykh's condition
advised that the Shaykh's condition necessitated rest that
particular evening, rather than giving a lesson after
The doctors needed to give him a blood transfusion and do
some medical checks on him. In response to them, the Shaykh
what you have to and I am going to give the lesson".
while he was giving the lesson, the doctors (around him) were
putting a needle into him to initiate the blood transfusion
process and complete the medical checkup, checking his temparature,
pulse and general health.
was the level of importance the Shaykh gave to spreading knowledge
and teaching the people, (right) up until the last night of
before his departure from al-Masjid
