The Life of Shaykh Muḥammad Nāṣir al-Dīn al-Albānī

  Shaykh Muḥammad al-ʿAnjarī

A nice biography of Shaykh al-Albānī from Shaykh Muḥammad al-ʿAnjarī of Kuwait, who had the pleasure of meeting the Shaykh and giving daʿwah during his lifetime.

Points Discussed -

  • He was born in Albania; he was not Arab

  • He was not from a rich family; he began to work at the age of 14 to provide for himself and his family as a watch-man in the early mornings

  • He would spend more than 12 hours (a day) in the library

  • From Albania he traveled to Syria, Saudia al-ʿArabīa, United Arab Emirates and Jordan

  • He had various famous works that many people across the globe and even the different ḥizbī groups now say ‘raḥimahullāh’ when the noble Shaykh is mentioned

  • He didn’t fear the blame of the blamers; he didn’t pay any mind to how many were alongside him on the path of ad-Da'watus-Salafīyyah

  • Reflect: What are we doing to support ad-da'watus-salafīyyah?

  • He is an example for us that even if you are a non-Arab, you can have a big impact in helping the Muslims in their dīn

  • The importance of correcting our ʿaqīdah

The talk concludes with various questions and answers. 

[Q1]: What stops the duʿāʾʾʾ from being answered, especially if two individuals who are married have tried to have al-taqwá?

[Q2]: Is it permissible to tell children stories with dragons and other fictional beings? And please explain the ḥadīth of ‘Aa’ishah when she made a horse with wings.

[Q3]: My parents are kuffār; do I need their permission to leave this country to a Muslim country?
