Memorised the Qur.aan in 6 months

Reference: ad-Durr ath-Thameen fee Tarjamti Faqeehil-Ummah al-‘Allaamah ibn ‘Uthaymeen – Page 23

Shaykh Ibraaheem ibn Hamad al-Jutaylee, who knew the Shaykh for more than 45 years, whilst also studying under him for more than 20 years, narrates:

Indeed, he memorised the Qur.aan in 6 months under the guidance of a blind teacher, ‘Alee ibn ‘Abdillaah ash-Shuhaytaan.

[1] Based upon this narration it is clear the Shaykh did not memorise the Qur.aan under the guidance of his grandfather, ‘Abdur-Rahmaan Ibn Sulaymaan ‘Aal Daamigh, as is popularly narrated, rather he merely read the Qur.aan to him, whilst later memorising it under the guidance of ash-Shuhaytaan.
