The Shaykh’s humour

Reference: Arba’ah ‘ashar ‘aam ma’a Samaahatil-‘Allaamah ash-Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen – Page 63

Abu Khaalid ‘Abdul-Kareem al-Miqrin narrates:

Whilst in the studio recording the programme “Questions by Telephone”, a brother by the name of Sa’d Khamees used to say to the Shaykh after every recording session:

“May Allaah reward you with good, O Shaykh, [and may] Allaah have mercy upon your parents.”

[And on this particular occasion] the Shaykh said: “Aameen! O Sa’d, and [as for] me?”

So Sa’d said: “[May] Allaah have mercy upon your parents.”

And [then] the Shaykh said: “Aameen, and [as for] me?”

It was then that Sa’d Khamees realised [what the Shaykh was saying] and [so] he said:

“[May] Allaah have mercy upon you and [may] Allaah have mercy upon your parents, and [may] He reward you with the best of rewards.”

[At this] the Shaykh smiled and [then] laughed, and we all laughed together.

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.
