As-Salaamu AlaiKum,

I am posting the following message up on behalf of a sister from Egypt.
She wants to know about "Shaykh Hassan al-Bannah" (who is currently alive and resides in Egypt -- not the sufi who has passed away).

Does anyone have any answers ikwaan?

She said:

Wa alaikum as salaam wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh

Okay now this is a bit of a situation for me, all along i have been thinking that the Shaykh Hassan al bannah here in egypt is the brother of Shaykh Muhammad al bannah.

I was told that the shaykh hassan al banna here in egypt was recommended by shaykh al aalamah Rabee bin hadee al madhkhalee....but i was not aware of another Shaykh Hassan al banna, besides the sufi one who isnt living anymore, and now i am uncertain about everything.

If you find the chance, afwan akhi, but can you ask them specifically about a Shaykh Hassan al Banna in Egypt InshaaAllah.

It's extremely important that i find out his status as he is who i and a close friend of mine cling to as we take him to be salafi, wa Allahu a'lam .

may Allah reward you immensly with good for aiding me as you can Ameen!!!

As salaamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh

From what i know, there is the sufi named Hasan al-Bannah (the Grandfather of T.Ramadan). He is linked with the origins of the ikwaan-ul-muslimeen in this last century and he is dead.

Then there is the Shaykh with (coincidently) the same name.. "Shaykh Hassan al-Bannah", who is the brother of Shaykh Muhammad al-Bannah.

Any others with the same name, then i don't know.

But i was told that the brother of Shaykh Muhammad al-Bannah resided in Jeddah. Maybe this is incorrect?

Is there anyone who has the correct information and who can assist?
Does anyone know who is the one in Egypt? Is it the same person?

Jazakallah Khair.

Wa alaykum as salaam wa rahmatullaah,

The founder of Ikhwaan ul Muslimeen, Hasan al-Banna died many decades ago.

Allaamah Muhammad ibn Abdul Wahhab Marzooq al-Bannah hafithahullaah is originally from Egypt and now resides in Makkah. He is well over 90 yrs old. You can see his biography

Allaamah Hasan ibn Abdul Wahhab Marzooq al-Banna hafithahullaah is the younger brother of Allaamah Muhammad ibn Abdul Wahhab Marzooq al-Bannah and is above 80 yrs. Currently, he lives and gives classes in Eqypt. This Shaykh came to US for dawrah in July this year and mashAllaah it was very beneficial. Here is a post based on one of his lectures . Allaamah Rabee hafidhahullaah has recommended this Allamah Hasan.

If there is any other Hasan al-Banna, then I am not aware.

Wa jazaak

She also has asked


I live in cairo egypt, and Shaykh Hassan al banna is the shaykh i take from here, as i was told that Shaykh Rabee gave him and okay and said we can take from him.

I would like to know if Shaykh Rabee said this, does this still stand and is Shaykh Hassan al banna okay to take from? Afwan!

She is refering to the one who resides in Egypt at the moment.

As salaamu 'alaykum,

Sister, Hasan al-Banna who was born in 1906 and got assasinated in 1949 was the man who established the deviant group by the name "al-Ikhwaan al-Muslimoonn" in 1928 or so.

Hasan al-Banna, the founder of the ikhwaan also had a close affiliation to Soofiyyah:


"...And amongst the examples of that is what Hasan al-Banna was upon - as he mentions about himself in his mudhakkiraat and as his students mention about him in their mudhakkiraat such as Abbaas as-Seesee in his book 'Fee Qaafilat il-Ikhwaan il-Muslimeen' - that he never used to abandon visiting the places in which others besides Allaah the Blessed and Exalted would be called upon - such as the grave of Sayyida Zainab and Tusooqi and Sinjar and others - that he never used to abandon visiting these places, even for one week and that he used to come and arrive at these places before dhuhr and he would stay there till the approach of maghrib, then he would leave and hold circles of dhikr and sometimes he would stand and give a speech to the ikhwaan and would order them to purify their hearts from grudges and jealousies towards one another and from all other Muslims and he would order them to look at the mistakes of the Jews, the Zionists and the enemies of Allaah - and he would never utter, with a single word - something that was related to the greatest form of Shirk, and the basis of the Shirk of all the world - he would come to those places with an open and warm heart and he would see this [greatest Shirk] with his eyes and hear it with his ears - such as from those who would seek succour [istigaathah] from other than Allaah and he saw what would be placed before him of the hair from the body of a muwahhid, or from the skin of a muwahhid or from the head and the actions of the greatest Shirk that would be performed with them - and he would come with a open chest and would leave with an open chest and he did not utter a single word and this is so that he does not say anything that would prevent the people from him or make the people flee from him.

Now, him and our Shaykh Hasan ibn 'Abdul-Wahhaab al-Banna, al-Atharee, as-Salafee, who was born in apprx. the year 1925 are not to be mistaken to be the same person. At the time of the establishment of the "Muslim Brotherhood" our shaykh Hasan was only 3 years of age, and Hasan al-Bannah, the founder of the ikhwaan, the soofee, was about 22 years old.

Our Shaykh Hasan ibn 'Abdul-Wahhaab al-Banna actually came to the USA as our brother Sajid mentioned, and he gave a lecture one morning refuting the Ikhwaan with a severe refutation, he did that at Masjid as-Sahaaba in Columbus, OH. I'm sure if you contact the brothers at Masjid as-Sahaaba [] they can probably send the lecture to you for a small fee ... hopefully this clears up a few things for the sister in Egypt!

was salaamu 'alaykum!

As Salaamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah,
Info provided to the brothers when the Shaykh came to Masjid as Sahaaba here in Columbus,Ohio

This is a brief biography of our brother for the pleasure of Allah and your grandfather in age, Sheikh Hassan Abdul Wahab Marzuq Al Banna and the various scholastic and academic stages which he has traversed by the permission of Allah.

He was born in Cairo (which is the capitol of Egypt) on the 22nd of October in the year 1925. He has four boys and girls and by the bounty of Allah, all of them are upon the authentic creed and minhaj of Ahlus Sunnah wal Jama'ah.  They are all married and have children.

The objective of this biography is to highlight some of the various stages which the Sheikh has traversed during his time in giving da'wah to the religion of Allah. As well as highlight some of the scholars he has met and studied under from the virtuous and sincere scholars of Ahlus Sunnah wal Jama'ah. Those who, their mention should be valued and revered and should act as an incentive for the youth and the elders to hold tightly to their way and methodology. Those who Allah mentioned to His Messenger (Sallahu alaihi wa salam) in the Qur'an:

واصبر نفسك مع الذين يدعون ربهم بالغدوة و العشى يريدون وجهه ولا تعد عيناك عنهم تريد زينة الحياة الدنيا ولا تطع من أغفلنا قلبه عن ذكرنا واتبع هواه وكان أمره فرطا
"And keep yourself patient with those who call on their Lord morning and afternoon seeking His Face; and let not your eyes overlook them, desiring the pomp and glitter of the life of this world, and obey not him whose heart We have made heedless of our remembrance and who follows his own lusts and whose deeds have been lost."

The sheikh was raised in a Muslim household who observed closely the pillars of Islam. His father, who was the noble Sheikh Abdul Wahab Marzuq Al Banna (may Allah have mercy on him) was initially upon the aqeedah and minhaj of the Ash'Ariyah, then Allah guided him to the correct and unadulterated aqeedah and minhaj of the Salafus Salih (i.e. pious predecessors), and by the permission of Allah, this is what he died upon (may Allah have mercy on him). Then Allah favored my brother, the noble Sheikh Muhammad Abdul Wahab Al Banna with an opportunity to work at the Ministry of Endowments in Egypt and by the permission of Allah, he was able to establish a committee called Jama'ah tul Ansar As Sunnah Al Muhamadiyah. The president of this group was none other than the noble Sheikh Muhammad Hammad Al Faqee. At this time, this was the only group in the country of Egypt who were calling to the Aqeedah of Ahlus Sunnah wal Jama'ah.  Hence, they used to call the people to Tawheed (i.e. Monotheism) with all of its aspects, and to purify their worship from all forms of shirk (i.e. Idolatry).

However, there were also various deviant groups in Egypt, at that time.  At the forefront of them was the Ikhwanul Muslimeen.  All of them opposed Jamaıtul Ansar As Sunnah Al Muhamadiyah, in their holding fast to the minhaj of Ahlus Sunnah wal Jama'ah.  The opposition to these noble brothers and in some instances it even reached the level of animosity and hatred, all because of the minhaj and aqeedah of Ahlus Sunnah wal Jama'ah.  However, Allah gave my noble brother Muhammad Al Banna success and we aided these brothers, along with the help of another special and virtuous brother who was a colleague of his at his job, the noble Sheikh Muhammad Sadiq.  Ironically, neither of these two knew about Salafiyah prior to this, but Sheikh Muhammad Sadiq had a very unyielding love for knowledge, he was also a very proficient poet.

They were both in search of a group who were upon the puristic teachings of the Minhaj and Aqeedah of Ahlus Sunnah wal Jama'ah.  Subsequently, they visited a particular group of individuals who were apparently upon the Qur'an and the Sunnah of Muhammad.  This group apparently professed to be upon the Qur'an and Sunnah. They also professed to wage war against the people of bid'ah, but in reality they were upon the methodology of the Ash'ariyah, who distort and pervert the attributes of Allah, calling to it and spreading it amongst the people. When my brother and his companion recognized this they came across a book, authored by Muhammad Ahmad Abdus Salaam Ash Shuqayri, who was from the scholars of Ahlus Sunnah wal Jama'ah, called Al Qawl Jalee Fee Tawasul Bin Nabi Wal Walee and the book Adab Qiratul Qur'an Ala Mayit.  So they contacted the Sheikh, visited him and became very well acquainted with him.  He introduced them to Jama'ahtul Ansar As Sunnah Al Muhamadiyah who had a small place adjacent to the villa of A'bideen. However, the people around them were not too fond of them or what they were propagating about Tawheed, mainly because the Haqq was in total opposition to their Aqeedah.

They were few in number, but when my brother and his companion went to visit these brothers they were pleased with what they saw, just as my brother and his companion were pleased with what they saw, heard and witnessed of the lectures being presented about Tawheed, which was given by Sheikh Abdul Aziz Ibn Rashid At Tamimi An Najd from the scholars of those who ascribe themselves to Salafiyah. He was living in Egypt at the time and has many well known compilations, as well his brother for the sake of Allah, Abdullah Ibn Yabis An Najdi from the Salafi scholars. So my brother and his companion met with Sheikh Muhammad Hammad Al Faqee. They were ecstatic to meet him and they found, by meeting him, what they were looking for, which was clarification of the correct religion and the most important affairs which was the Aqeedah and Minhaj of Ahlus Sunnah Wal Jama'ah.

They began to learn the books and references which the scholars refer to.  One of the most influential scholars from whom they learned was Muhammad Munayir Ad Damashqi. The moment they began to learn the Aqeedah and Minhaj of Ahlus Sunnah, they increased in their diligence and desire to learn more. They attended all the lectures of Muhammad Haamad Al Faqee who frequently traveled to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and was beloved to His Eminence, the King Abdul Aziz ibn Sa'ud (Rahimahullah).   The Sheikh had a well known reputation with the scholars there and a close connection with them. They used to make him responsible for reviewing certain books relating to Tawheed and Sunnah and publishing them by the way of his publishing company in the city of A'bideen in Cairo. He would review them, publish them, and send them back to Saudi Arabia.  Soon after, my brother and his companion began to call to the religion of Allah all throughout Egypt. Traveling throughout the local cities giving da'wah to the religion of Allah and in the process of this, there love, brotherhood, and companionship increased, for the sake of Allah.

My brother also directed his attention towards our family, guiding, teaching and educating them.  He began with my father (may Allah have mercy on him) advising him to hold tightly to the Aqeedah of Ahlus Sunnah wal Jama'ah. My father, who had obtained a bachelors degree from Al-Azhar University, did not know any Aqeedah except that of the Ash'ariyah, in spite of his knowledge of other aspects of the religion. He didn't initially agree with or accept the call to the Aqeedah of As-Sunnah from my brother so he took him to my grandfather who was from the major scholars in Al-Azhar, but he was also of the Ashari methodology.  And all praise is for Allah, Allah guided my grandfather to the correct Tawheed and Minhaj and he began to weep because of what he had forfeited previously in his life and was so ignorant of for so many years. Then my brother directed his attention towards my mother (may Allah have mercy upon her) and my other siblings,calling them to Tawheed. Allah guided us all to this blessing and virtue. Therefore, the first teacher and guide to the Sunnah for me and my family was my brother.

I myself was immensely affected by the da'wah of Salafiyah and I began to read some of the books my brother introduced to me. Later on I met Sheik Muhammad Hammad Al Faqee and some of the other scholars involved in the da'wah in Egypt.  I came to love them and frequented their lectures and admonitions. Allah guided my heart to become acquainted with various sciences and matters of the religion I would have never known about had it not been for the bounty of Allah. So my brother is my sheik and my teacher as he played a major role in my guidance and removing some of the many burdens and difficulties of my life and the lives of my family, due to our misguidance.

My mother would prepare food for us and I would carry it to the lecture halls and circles of knowledge, and sit far away from the crowd.  When my brother and Muhammad Sadiq would finish with teaching, I would get lunch for them after Salatul Thuhr then the sheikh would read to us from the various sciences and the importance of these sciences was At Tawheed. Then he would read from the books of Seerah (i.e. biography of the Prophet Sallahu alaihi wa salam) then we would pray Asr and continue reading until Magrib. Anytime I had a question about a matter I would find the details of it with my brother and this increased my love for him and it also made me closer to him because he guided me away from the most corrupt and deviant Aqeedah which had affected so many of the youth during that time. Then after the death of Muhammad Hamid Al Faqee, Sheik Abdur Razaq Al Afifi took his place.

I used to travel to see him and at times travel with him and help prepare his lessons for him so when the students of Khundariyah he would be prepared. And from those who were with them was Sheikh Abdul Aziz Ibn Rashid An Najdi, from the scholars of Saudi Arabia who was living in Egypt at the time. I would attend his lessons while in Iskandariyah as well as visit him at his house on many occasions. When he traveled to Makkah I would travel and attend his lessons and admonitions. Then Allah would have it that Sheikh Abdur Razaq was one of my teachers in the University in Riyadh.  And I would meet him when he came to visit his kids while I was teaching in the Islamic University in Madinah. And Sheikh Abdur Razaq would teach even in the presence of his Eminence the King Abdul Aziz ibn Sa'ud and my brother would also attend these lessons along with the other scholars. My brother was chosen to teach at the institute of knowledge in Saudi Arabia (which was the school of many like Sheikh Muhammad Aman Al Jami, Sheikh Muhammad Ibn Salih Al Uthaymeen and others). So he left Cairo with his family to be a teacher in Riyadh. Then his Eminence, the noble Sheikh Abdul Aziz Ibn Baz was appointed president of the Islamic University of Madinah and he learned about my brother in Riyadh, and they developed a companionship, love and a strong sense of brotherhood for one another. Then Sheikh Abdur Razaq and Sheikh Ibn Baz's relationship strengthened to the point that Sheikh Abdur Razaq was appointed Sheikh Ibn Baz's wakil in the department of Fatawah, Da'wah wal Irshaad. Allah gave him Tawfeeq and both the scholars and students of knowledge developed a great deal of reverence and respect for him due to his knowledge and virtue. I also met Sheikh Muhammad Al Madani Malukhiyah, who was also from the people of knowledge, Aqeedah and Minhaj. I also met Sheikh Abdur Rahman Al Wakil who preceded Sheikh Abdur Razaq after his demise; he traveled to Russia and was responsible for guiding many there to Islam and the correct Aqeedah and Minhaj. He was also responsible for writing many refutations on the Sufis. These are some of the most beneficial compilations which I have benefited from tremendously. I also had the opportunity to meet Sheikh Muhammad Khaleel Hurras, I attended many of his lessons and traveled with him on many occasions while he was calling to this da'wah. I would ask him about issues related to certain ahadeeth which were falsely interpreted by the Mu'tazilah.  

Then Allah chose my brother to be a teacher at King Abdul Aziz University in Saudi Arabia, in the department for higher leaning, more specifically, the department of Aqeedah and the Minhaj. Then Muhammad Abdul Majeed assumed leadership of Jama'ah, and at this time, I would give da'wah in the local masajid, khutbahs and lectures about Tawheed. Then Allah willed that Sheikh Ibn Baz requested of me to teach at the Islamic University in Madinah. My brother, clarified to the Sheikh that my aqeedah was correct and that my minhaj was the minhaj of Ahlus Sunnah wal Jama'ah.

As-Salaamu AlaiKum,

Jazakallah Khair for all those who have replied.

After some further research, (a video was found with the shaykh giving a lecture), we have identified that it is the same Shaykh that the sister from Egypt was refering to.

The sister now knows.

Jazallah Khair for all those who replied.

As Salaamu Alaykum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakaatuh.  May Allah have mercy upon me and all of the Muslims.

Our father, Ash-Shaykh Hasan bin Abdul-Wahhaab Marzooq Al-Bannaa, may Allah preserve him.  Currently lives in Cairo, Egypt, in an area named Misr Jadeedah,or New Egypt or Heliopolis.  He teachers once a week in Heliopolis, at Masjidut-Tawheed, every Tuesday evening, after Salaatul-Ishaa.  He is currently teaching from Tafseer ibnul-Katheer, Fathul-Baaree and Qatful-Janaa Ad-Daanee from Shaykh Abdul-Muhsin Al-Abaad. He is also available every Sunday and Wednesday, after Salaatudh-Dhur, at Masjidut-Tawheed in Abdeen or Tahreer.  He is affiliated with the this masjid.

The Shaykh has shared with me thoughts about his trip to america.  He has told me that he was so suprised and pleased to see so many muslims adhering to the Manhajj of Al-Qur'aan and As-Sunnah, according to the understanding of As-Salafus-Saalih.  He said that this made him happy.  He said that he would like to see us increase in our memorizing, learning, studying and reading of Al-Qur'aan and that we should also concentrate on studying and learning Al-Lugatul-Arabiyyah.  He told us that if we have an arabic class during the same time that we have class with him, go to the arabic class.  He said that how can you understand your religion, except through arabic.  May Allah preserve him.

As Salaamu Alaykum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakaatuh.  May Allah have mercy upon me,
you and all of the Muslims.

After our class this evening with Ash-Shaykh Hasan Al-Bannaa, may Allah preserve
him.  I asked him a question that was asked of me.

Question: In america we have individuals who teach Tajweedul-Qur'aan (recitation
of the Qur'aan) and Al-Lugatul-Arabiyyahy (the Arabic language).  These
individuals at arent upon this blessed da'wah, Ad-Da'watus-Salafiyyah.  Are we
able to sit with these individuals and learn what they are teaching.

Answer: Sitting with these individuals is allowed, if it is a dire need, and a
necessity.  Learn from them, At-Tajweed and Arabic, and nothing else.  Sit with
them and leave from their sitting after you have learned these two sciences and
do not learn Al-Aqeedah (The Creed/Doctrine of Al-Islaam) or Al-Manhajj (The
correct way of adhereing to Al-Islaam and implementing As-Sunnah).  Once again
as long as it is necessary.  I understand the condition of the Muslims in
america.  May Allah make it easy upon you all.

Later Ash-Shaykh Hasan advised us outside.  To study Al-Aqeedah and At-Tawheed
(The Oneness of Allah, in His Lordship, Him being single out for worship and His
Names and Attributes).  He stressed us to learn Al-Aqeedah and At-Tawheed, he
expressed this several times.  He than said, "this is what separates us from
Al-Kufaar (the disbelievers) and Al-Kufr (disbelief). This is what makes us
different from them.  Our Aqeedah and our understanding of At-Tawheed.  We must
raise the banner of Al-Islaam, by learning At-Tawheed and teaching it and
spreading it.  He than said, May Allah guide you all to Al-Khayr (Good).  May
Allah preserve the Shaykh and accept his eforts in trying to teach us.  Ameen.

May Allah have mercy upon us all.

Assalamu Alaykum Wa Rahmatullah

Going back to July 2008, I had the opportunity to  hear the Shaykh at the Masjid Rahmah Conference in New Jersey. It was a pleasure to be thereı.. but what I want to state, (more for the sisters,) is an incident that occurred which I hold close to my heart!
We were having problem listening to the lecture as the speakers werenıt working very well. I had stepped out of the sisters main lecture room  to see what was going on. At the door, one of the sister, that I know from Masjid Rahmah, stopped me and asked me to see if I can understand what this other sister was saying. She was speaking in Arabic, and I could not see her as she was fully covered from head to toe, Mashallah! I asked her what she wanted (with my limited Arabic), and she responded that no one can hear the shaykh, and none of the sister was benefitting from the lecture, sisters need to hear, etc. So I mentioned to her that I am sure they are trying to take care of it, and Inshallah, we will not miss anything.  After reassuring her I asked her to go inside and have a seat, as she sounded tiredıı. And she thanked me and went inside. When I turned to the other sister to tell her what was her concern, she asked me if I knew who I was talking to, which I didnıt. She informed me that this was the Shaykh Hassan ibn Abdul Wahab Al-Bannaıs WIFE! Mashallah, my heart just meltedı.. itıs not that I was talking to the shaykhıs wife, but more so, to see her state of being, her mannerism ! May Allaah reward her, and give us the ability to fear Allaah at that age also, and stay in complete cover!

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful,

May Allaah bless you,Abdur-Raqeeb. The answer of Shaykh Hasan (May Allaah preserve him) reminds me of this fatwa that I read by Shaykh Fawzan (May Allaah preserve him) some years ago.

Question: What's the ruling on seeking knowledge with a shaykh that differs with Ahulus-Sunna wal Jamaat in tawheed al-Asmaa wa Sifaat? Benefit us and May Allaah benefit you.

Answer: Verily, choosing the teacher who is upright in his aqeedah and knowledge is an affair that is desired.IF THAT IS NOT POSSIBLE and you found someone who has knowledge in figh (for example) or nahwoo (arabic grammar) and knowledge that is NOT RELATED to aqeedah, there is no objection if you study with him in the sciences he specializes in. As for the aqeedah, do not study it except with the people who have the correct aqeedah.

As Salaamu Alaykum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakaatuh. May Allah have mercy upon me,
you and all of the Muslims. Ameen.

As I entered the masjid for our class (12-01-09) with our Shaykh Hasan Abdul-Wahhaab
Marzouq Al-Banaa, may Allah preserve him, I saw him praying. After I offered my
prayer of greeting the masjid, I greeted the Shaykh, and kissed his head. We
talked about how each of us spent our Eid and the conditions of our families.
After this the Shaykh began to drink his tea, which was prepared for him. I
asked the Shaykh, how does one become a strong student, treading the path of
seeking knowledge? The Shaykh replied, Patience (Sabr). He said this 3 times.
He said patience with Allah, in good and bad times. Patience with yourself,
patience with ease and with hardships. Patience with your family and friends.
Patience with knowledge. Patience with the Qur'aan. Patience with learning the
arabic language. I thanked the Shaykh and returned to my place of sitting.
After a short while, the Shaykh motioned to me to come to him. He told me, not
to waste time. He told me to guard my time from the time wasters. He told me
not to waste my time with that which wont bring about any benefit. Guard your
time against your desires. Give knowledge all of your time. Tire yourself with
seeking knowledge. Do not become distracted by those who want to take your
knowledge. Once again I thanked the Shaykh and returned to my place of sitting.
After a short period, the Shaykh motioned to me again to come to him. He told
me to engulf yourself in reading the Qur'aan. He said to read the Qur'aan in
abundance. Over and over and over. He said to read the Qur'aan when you wake
from your sleep, read the Qur'aan before you go to bed. The more you read the
Qur'aan, the better you will become in the arabic language. So constantly read
the Qur'aan.
He also told me to listen to the tapes of the Ulemaa (major scholars), from the
likes of Shaykh Al-Albaanee, Shaykh Al-Uthaymeen, Shaykh Ibn Baaz, and Shaykh
Saalih Aali Shaykh.

Later on the Shaykh was asked about the Rights of the Qur'aan. Is it to read it
or to memorize it?

He, the Shaykh, may Allah preserve him said, one should read the Qur'aan. The
Qur'aan is to be read. To memorize it is good. But if it cant be memorized, so
read it. Read it in your prayer, before you sleep, when you wake. Before
prayer and after prayer. Always have a mushaf (copy of the Qur'aan) near you,
everywhere. In Shaa Allah.

May Allah have mercy upon us all.

We have a regular link up with Shaykh Hassan al Banna at the centre.
Previously he has covered Six Events from the life of the Prophet of Shaykh Muhammad ibn Abdul Wahaab.
You can download them here:

[url=]Lesson 4[/url]

[url=]Lesson 5[/url]

Currently in Cairo on Wed, he goes through three books in one lesson, spending approx 30mins on each part: Tafsir Quran, Fathul Bari, Aqeedah Wasitiyah

He does a further two lessons, but I have forgotten the times and locations. I can find out if needed, and if anyone needs info, then PM me.
