Imaam Sa’dee and the Blind Man’s Joke

October 17, 2013 § Leave a comment


Shaikh Abdullah Aqeel said about his Shaikh, Imaam Sa’dee (d. 1956), “He was asked one time at a large gathering about the ruling concerning a person seeing his intended wife before the nikaah so he answered stating that it was permissible and that the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم had instructed that.  There was a blind man present and so he said, ‘What about us blind people, is it permissible for us to touch since we can’t see?’ So the Shaikh and those present laughed.”

[Imaam Sa’dee was also Shaikh Uthaimeen’s teacher, may Allaah have mercy on them all.]
