There is a narration by one of Shaykh al-Albaanee’s prolific students, Shaykh ‘Alee ibn Hasan al-Halabee al-Atharee (hafitha-hullaah), concerning when he informed Shaykh al-Albaanee (rahima-hullaah) of the death of Shaykh Ibn Baaz (rahima-hullaah):

On the same day [as the death of Shaykh Ibn Baaz (rahima-hullaah)] I met our Shaykh and teacher the ‘Allaamah, the Muhaddith – Abu ‘Abdir-Rahmaan Muhammad Naasiruddeen al-Albaanee (rahima-hullaah) – may Allaah restore his health and prolong his stay and extend his time. I informed him of the news of the death of the noble Shaykh ‘Abdul-’Azeez ibn Baaz – may Allaah increase His favours upon him. I did not see him (the Shaykh), except that his eyes began to shed tears and he sighed deeply and then said:

«إِنَّا لِلهِ وَ إِنَّا إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعُوْن، اَللَّهُمَّ آجُرْنِي فِي مُصِيْبَتِي وَ اخْلُفْنِي خَيْراً مِنْهَا»

«To Allaah we belong and unto Him is our return. O Allaah, recompense me for my affliction and replace it for me with something better»
