“The is so-and-so who said such-and-such about you”

Reference: Mawaaqif madhee.ah fee hayaat al-Imaam ‘Abdul-‘Azeez Ibn Baaz – Page 188

‘Abdur-Rahmaan ibn Muhammad al-Baddaah narrates:

It was narrated that the Shaykh (Ibn Baaz) differed [in opinion] with one of the Shaykhs from outside Saudi Arabia regarding a few issues.

It then happened that this [non-Saudi] Shaykh came to Saudi Arabia and the Shaykh (Ibn Baaz) invited him to his house for lunch thereby honouring him. Amongst the gathering were some students, who [turned and] said to the Shaykh (Ibn Baaz):

“This is so-and-so, who said such-and-such about you,” [at which] the Shaykh (Ibn Baaz) silenced them.

He [then] continued to honour his guest and at the end of the gathering, the Shaykh (Ibn Baaz) escorted him to the [front] door to bid him farewell. [It was] then that the [non-Saudi] Shaykh said:

“If it was said to me that there is someone on the face of this earth who is from the pious predecessors, certainly I would have said it is this man (i.e. Shaykh Ibn Baaz).”

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.
