I arrived in Riyadh on a cold night..." I arrived in Riyadh on a cold night..." *Please appropriately reference this quote to: www.fatwa-online.com, thankyou!* Concerning the Imaam, the Shaykh - 'Abdul-'Azeez ibn Baaz (rahima-hullaah), ?Abdullaah ibn Muhammad al-Mu?taaz narrates:
"Shaykh Muhammad Haamid who was the president of the group ?As.haab al-Yameen? in Eritrea said:
?I arrived in Riyadh on a cold night, and did not have any (money) with which to pay for a hotel. So I thought about going to Shaykh ?Abdul-?Azeez ibn Baaz?s house; the time was 3 o?clock in the morning (and) I was hesitant, but (finally) decided to go (to the Shaykh?s house).
I arrived outside his old mud-style house and found someone asleep by the gate. Having awoken, he opened the gate for me and I conveyed my greetings to him ever so quietly so that no-one (else) hears me since it was so late at night.
After a short while, I saw the Shaykh himself descending from the stairs with a pot of food. He extended greetings to me and gave me the food, saying:
?I heard your voice and brought this food for you, assuming you had not eaten this night?.
By Allaah, I was unable to sleep (the rest of the night) due to weeping at such noble manners?.?
