The Scholars' Praise of Shaikh Al-Albaani (rahimahullaah)  

The 'Allaamah, the Shaikh, the Faqih, 'Abdul-Aziz ibn Baaz (rahimahullaah) said about Shaikh al-Albaani:
I have not seen under the surface of the sky a scholar of hadith in this time of ours like the 'Allaamah, Muhammad Naaasirud-Deen al-Albaani.

And his eminence was asked about the saying of the Prophet (salallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam): Indeed, for this nation, at the beginning of every one hundred years, Allaah sends someone who will [revive] its religion for it. [Abu Dawud, Shaikh Al-Abaani declared it to be authentic]. So he asked, "Who is the reviver [mujaddid] of this century?" So he (rahimahullaah) said:
Shaikh Muhammad Naasirud-Deen al-Albaani, he is the reviver of this time in my opinion, and Allaah knows best.

The 'Allaamah, the Faqeeh, the Shaikh, Muhammad Ibn Saalih al-Uthaymeen (rahimahullaah) said:
That which I know about the Shaikh through the times I met him, and they were few, is that he was extremely eager to act upon the Sunnah, and to fight innovations, whether they were in matters of creed or action.

He also said:
I came to know this about him through what I read from his works, and that he has a copious amount of knowledge in hadith, their chains of narrations and the understanding taken from them, and that Allaah has benefitted many people through what he has written, as regards knowledge, methodology and turning to the science of hadith, and this is a great benefit for the Muslims, and all praise is due to Allaah.

And he said:
As for verifying and checking, then how excellent he is [for you to recourse to].

And one time he saw a cassette on which was written, "By the Muhaddith of Syria Muhammad Naasirud-Deen al-Albaani." So he said:
Rather the muhaddith of this age.

The 'Allaamah, the Muhaddith, our Shaikh Abdul-Muhsin al-Abbaad (may Allaah, the Most High, protect him and allow us to enjoy his company [his knowledge etc., by giving him a long life]), said:
And al-Albaani is a magnificent scholar who served the Sunnah, and his creed ['aqidah] is good and defaming him is not allowed.

And he said:
Indeed he is the one all will miss, the great, famous scholar, the Shaikh Muhammad Naasirud-Deen al-Albaani, may Allaah have mercy on him and forgive him. He has colossal efforts in serving the Sunnah, and in giving attention to the sayings of the Prophet of Allaah (salallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam), clarifying the sources of those sayings and the books they are mentioned in, [also] clarifying their grade as to whether they are authentic or weak. His service to the Sunnah is well-known and he defended the creed of the Pious Predecessors and their methodology vigorously. No student of knowledge can suffice himself without referring back to his books and written works, for indeed they contain ample good, and in them is abundant knowledge, his written works are numerous and great, and most libraries will not be devoid of his books, or will at least have some of them, and he paid great attention to researching, writing, and referring back to the speech of the scholars and benefitting from them, and the passing away of scholars such as this is, in all reality, [the cause of] a great deficiency in the Muslims, and a calamity and a breach in the [affairs of the] religion.

Subhanak Allaahuma wa bihamdika ash-hadu anlaa illaaha illa anta astaghfiruka wa atubu ilayk  

If I said anything correct, then it is from Allaah (subhanahu wa taa'ala), and if I erred, then that is from me and shaytan.
