The Shaykh disliked attention

Reference: Arba’ah ‘ashar ‘aam ma’a Samaahatil-‘Allaamah ash-Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen – Page 34

Abu Khaalid ‘Abdul-Kareem al-Miqrin narrates:

As is known to many Muslims, the Shaykh disliked attention as well as titles and positions of importance.

The Shaykh was a member of the Council of Senior Scholars, and as such he requested that I not mention this of him whilst hosting the radio programme, “Noor ‘alad-Darb”. He suggested it was sufficient I introduce him as the imaam and khateeb of al-Jaami’ al-Kabeer masjid in the city of ‘Unayzah, and a teacher at the Faculty of Sharee’ah and Usool ad-Deen in Qaseem.

So since I began hosting the programme I have adhered to the Shaykh’s request up until his death.

And many of those who loved the Shaykh ask me:

“O Abu Khaalid, why is it that you do not mention that the Shaykh is a member of the Council of Senior Scholars?”

So I respond by telling them this was the Shaykh’s personal request.

He is a graduate of the Islaamic University of Madeenah, having graduated from the Institute of Arabic Language, and later the Faculty of Sharee'ah in 2004. He currently resides in Birmingham, UK.
