Concerning the Imaam, the Shaykh – Muhammad ibn Saalih al-‘Uthaymeen (rahima-hullaah), it has been narrated:

And Shaykh Muhammed, I mean Ibn ‘Uthaymeen rahima-hullaah, loved his Shaykh, ‘Abdul-‘Azeez ibn Baaz immensely. Once, I called him during the time when Shaykh ‘Abdul-‘Azeez was ill, and I spoke to him about this, and he said to me: May Allaah not permit us to witness the day he dies.

And when Shaykh ‘Abdul-‘Azeez died, I called Shaykh Muhammad the morning following his death and asked him: Has the news reached you? And he replied: Yes, [and] what a great man [he was].

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.
