Ibn Baaz Angry

March 24, 2012 § Leave a comment


Shaikh Raashid ibn Uthmaan az-Zahraani said, “A student asked the Shaikh about giving precedence to the saying of a Companion or a student of a Companion over that of the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم.  So the Shaikh became angry at that statement and struck his head with his hand saying, ‘O so and so!  You have to place the sunnah of the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم on your head [i.e., give precedence to it]!’  Then after a while the Shaikh called that person and said, ‘You must free me from that [i.e., the fact that I became angry, i.e., don’t hold it against me], for I did not say that except out of eagerness to establish the Sunnah of the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم.'”

Mawaaqif Mudee’ah, p. 229.
