Following our natural concern for the health of the Shaykh al-‘Allaamah Muqbil ibn Haadee al-Waadi’ee, I called Shaykh Rabee’ ibn Haadee al-Madkhalee just a short time ago who assured me that Shaykh Muqbil was getting better. In accordance with the authentic hadeeth:
«the water of Zam Zam is what it is drunk for»
…the Shaykh had resorted to a strict diet/fast of just drinking Zam Zam water, which in his current weak state and under the extreme conditions in Makkah further weakened his health and therefore was rushed to hospital.
Shaykh Rabee’ further went on to ask about the brothers and how the da’wah via the web site (SP) is coming along, and I assured him it was strong, wa lillaahil-hamd!
Having previously brought to the attention of the Shaykh the efforts of some in illegally copying books and making them freely available for download, I further brought to the attention of the Shaykh that these people are now also removing all mention of the translators and publishers from such copies and further, adding comments to the books. The Shaykh advised that such people need to be warned not to do this, as this is not befitting and correct.
We ask all our brothers and sisters to pray to Allaah (Subhaanahu wa Ta’aala) to grant our ‘Ulamaa. better health and strength to continue with the jihaad of propogating the pure and un-adulterated Qur.aan and Sunnah as understood by the early generation of Muslims, from the Sahaabah, the Taabi’oon, the Atbaa’ at-Taabi’een and those who followed in their way…aameen.
