The Youth Who Prayed Next to Ibn Baaz and what The Shaikh Advised Him With

January 13, 2012 § 1 Comment


Khaalid ibn Abdur-Rahmaan ash-Shaayi’ said, ‘In 1405ah/1984ce, approximately, when I was at secondary school, I prayed next to the Shaikh in a mosque close to his house.  So I recited some Quraan while the Shaikh was praying the two rak’ahs one must pray when entering the mosque [tahayyatul-masjid].  After he finished praying he gave me salaam and said, ‘Who are you?’  So I introduced myself to him and what I was studying so he said to me:

‘O my son!  Devote your attention to the Quraan.  Your voice is pleasant and your recitation is good.  Aspire to memorise the Quraan.  Set aside for yourself a portion to memorise and revise daily.  And see which of your friends can aid you in that.’

Mawaaqif Mudee’ah, p. 214.
