He Cut off his Lesson to Receive Shaikh Ibn Baaz

by The Albaani Blog


Translated by Ahmed Abu Turaab

Dr. Abdul-Aziz as-Sadhaan said, ‘And an old person in Madinah told me that one time Shaikh Naasir al-Albaani was in a religious gathering with the students around him.  At the beginning of the lesson one of the people present whispered something in his ear.

So the Shaikh excused himself from continuing the lesson and explained that Shaikh Ibn Baaz was about to arrive in Medinah and that he was going to give salaam to him or that he would receive him at the airport, and that was when Shaikh Ibn Baaz was at Medinah University.

But what I am not certain of is whether this occurred when Shaikh Naasir was a teacher at the university or when he was visiting Medinah and his presence there happened to coincide with the return of Shaikh Ibn Baaz from one of his journeys.’
