Concerning the Imaam, the Shaykh - Muhammad
ibn Saalih al-'Uthaymeen (rahima-hullaah),
it has been narrated by Shaykh Ahmad al-Qar'aawee:
of the time, before the Shaykh entered the masjid, a little
girl of 6 years would approach him asking the Shaykh for a
riyal. So, the Shaykh, smiling, would say to her:
you like a (brand) new riyal or an old (used) riyal?"
So she would reply: "I would like a new riyal."
So the Shaykh would give her a new riyal and then she would
ask him on behalf of her sister and the Shaykh would give
her one (riyal) too."
