While going to Makkah this weekend and passing through gate 94 to see our sheikh Muhammad Abdulwahhab Marzooq al-Banna.  He is usually there inside in his electric wheel chair worshipping Allaah, praying 5 times a day in the haram of Makkah and reading Qur'an at the age of 94 mashaallaah. This time, though, I was surprised not to see him there. Then we called his family only to be told he was taken to hospital in Jeddah. Alhamdulillah we managed to see him the next day and made du'a for him. He looked much weaker but still had his conscience. He prayed lying down. Labasan Tahooran inshaallaah. We spoke a little but realised the sheikh was tired so we didn't prolong the stay.

When we came to the Kingdom 13 years ago, he was the first murabi (educator and cultivator) we met in Jeddah. He used to have 4 lessons a week in his masjid which he built next to his house in Safa District. He was kind, gentle and very welcoming. I can never remember him getting angry. He used to drive an old mercedes mashaallaah and would go to different mosques to give da'wah such as Masjid Turki. The sheikh had taught many of the scholars alive today such as Sheikh Abdulmuhsin al-Abbad, Sheikh Rabee' al-Madkhali and the likes of Sheikh Muhammad Amman rahimahullaah from those that died. Sheikh Muhammad al-Banna used to teach in Masjid an-Nabawi where he had a seat giving lessons. Once he told me that sheikh al-Albaani who was his neighbour in Madinah also used to attend regularly. May Allaah make him better and grant him a quick and complete recovery. Alhamdullilah i was able to record many lessons which will be available to help spread the sheikhs knowledge. Amongst his lessons were:

Usool 6
Kitaab Tawheed
Lam'at al-I'tiqaad
Tafseer Ibn Katheer
Umdat al-Ahkaam
Sharh Saheeh Musim
general topics such as milad Nabi, Israa wal Mi'raaj, reply to a jihadi/takfeeri, hadeeth Hudaifah (radiallaahu 'anhu), current affairs of the Ummah (transcribed into Arabic) etc.

His da'wah was simple, always referring back to the reference point of the Quran and Sunnah in the understanding of the companions. Always mentioning a proof for what he was saying. He would listen carefully to the questioner and would answer until there were no more questions and then would say the shop is closed! His memory was very good mashaallaah narrating a hadeeth as it was stated. May Allaah brighten his face with the light of guidance as in the hadeeth in Saheeh Muslim. Ameen.

A full biography will be available in Arabic and English soon inshaallaah. May Allaah protect us and keep us always close to the scholars of Ahlu Sunnah. May Allaah give us sincerity in this da'wah seeking His face on a day where no wealth nor children will be able to benefit anyone except that we come to Allaah with a pure heart with righteous actions. Ameen

Check for the excellent talk delivered by our brother Abdulilah Lahmami on the Biography of the Shaykh shafahullaah. Can someone give update regardng his health?

Also listen to the beneficial audio by the Shaykh regarding various issues here

The Shaykh hafithahullaah defends Shaykhs Ubayd, Rabee hafithahumullaah and refutes Suroorism, Qutubism and gives some points of benefits on how to deal with individuals who were praised by some Ulemah but other Ulemah refute them.
