Al-Albaani asked, ‘O Shaikh of Ours! Do You Know the ‘Aqeedah of this Imaam You Pray Behind?’
by The Albaani Blog
Shaikh Esaam Moosaa Haadi said, “In the late 80’s our Shaikh, may Allaah have mercy on him, used to pray fajr behind an Imaam in the An-Nuzhah district, the mosque was far from the Shaikh but he used to love the salaah and recitation of this Imaam. There was a group of us brothers who would stand [waiting] for the Shaikh on the street and when he’d pass us he’d pick us up in his car and we’d go to pray with him and then we’d come back with him. One time, a young guy new [to the da’wah] in those days got in with us, on the way back he said to the Shaikh, ‘O Shaikh of ours! Do you know the ’aqeedah of this Imaam you pray behind?’ So our Shaikh said:
‘I don’t know his ’aqeedah just like I don’t know yours.’”
