Gems from the lives of the three noble scholars: Ibn Baaz, Al-Albanee
and Ibn Uthaymeen.
Shaykh Ibn Baaz (1909-1999)
"Once he was informed about the students at the Shariah Institute; who
had not had lunch or supper that day. Upon hearing this, tears began
falling down his face. He then ordered that his one and only car be sold
in order to buy food for those students."
Shaykh Al-Albanee (1914-1999)
"The shaykh used to give a ride to whomever from amongst the students he
would come across (on his way) to the Islaamic University of Madeenah or
to the centre of town. And this was always the case; his car would be
full of students coming to the University upon leaving."
Shaykh Ibn Uthaymeen (1929-2001)
"Once in one of the study circles, one of the students went to the
bathroom and (whilst there) the water pipes burst. So he came to the
Shaykh in the middle of his study circle and informed him about it. The
Shaykh wen to his house, which (at the time) was next door to the masjid
and came back with plumbing tools with the students. They then repaired
the pipe and returned to complete the lesson"
