Ibn Baaz and the Number of Times He Read Al-Nawawi’s Explanation of Saheeh Muslim
February 13, 2014 § 2 Comments
“Shaikh Ibn Baaz, may Allaah have mercy on him, was asked what the best book that he had read was, so he replied, ‘Al-Nawawi’s explanation of Saheeh Muslim,’ [which is eighteen odd volumes] and the person narrating this said that the Shaikh said, ‘I’ve read it more than sixty times.’”
Al-Imaam Ibn Baaz, Duroos wa Mawaaqif wa ’Ibar, p. 28.
So does that mean that according to the Shaikh, the best book he had read was not the Qur’an?
He means books apart from the Quraan.
