King Faisal, Ibn Baaz and the Mansion

February 27, 2012 § Leave a comment


Dr. Naasir ibn Misfir az-Zahrani said, “One of these well-known, captivating stories about his eminence [Ibn Baaz] occurred in Medinah al-Munawwarah when he was the President of the Islamic University.  King Faisal, may Allaah have mercy on him, visited him and ordered that a mansion/villa be built for his eminence which would be commensurate with his scholarly, religious and social standing.  After it was built they came to the Shaikh to transfer the deeds to his name, but he refused and [instead] said that, ‘The villa will stay registered in the name of the President of the Islamic University, whoever becomes the head of the university, the villa will be his residence.’”

Mawaaqif Mudee’ah, p. 143.
