Interview with Shaykh al ‘Uthaimeen (RA)’s Wife

as Salaam ‘alaykum wa Rahmatullaah,

An Interview with Shaykh Muhamamd ibn Saalih alUthaimeen (Rahimullah)’s Wife, Umm ‘Abdullaa. Brought to you by

Interview with Umm ‘Abdullaah: Wife of Shaykh Muhammad ibn Saalih al ‘Uthaimeen [PDF]

It’s a pretty good interview gives you a small glimpse into the life of the ‘ulemaa of our ummah. If you don’t know who Shaykh al ‘Uthaimeen (Rahimullaah) is then please read the Shaykh’s biography here.

When you read about the great ‘ulemaa of our time and their life and the way they conduct themselves with others and their manners. Wa’Allahi. it always increases your eemaan. It is a completely unique experience when you actually hear it from a person who has personally spend time with these personalities. I remember Shaykh Yasir Birjas, who spent a great deal of time and studied with Shaykh al ‘Uthaimeen, always has these heart warming and uplifting incidents that he experienced with Shaykh al ‘Uthaimeen. It really blows your mind away when you hear of these ‘ulemaa conducting halaqas with not hundreds but thousands of people in the audience.

I remember hearing Shaykh Waleed Basyouni talk about Shaykh bin Baz (Rahimullaah) over a year ago, and it completely changed the way I thought of Shaykh bin Baz (Rahimullaah). Just learning about their path to knowledge and their ibaada and their dedication to this deen makes us seem like a ‘joke’ compared to them. I had planned on writing a blog entry, a long time ago, about my experience with Shaykh Waleed Basyouni and Muhamamd Faqih (at IHOP over a very late night dinner) and the beautiful words they had to say about Shaykh bin Baz (Rahimullaah), but after reading this it has given me a renewed inspiration to write about this experience and the great esteem in which they see and now I see Shaykh bin Baz (Rahimullah). May Allah give me the ability to do this. But before I end this entry I just wanted to quote one statement that Shaykh Waleed gave us by one of the senior scholars which really blew me away. The Shaykh said that the big scholars would say about Shaykh bin Baz (Rahimullah) that he was someone who in respect to his worship and piety was from the generations of the salaf (pious predecessors) but Allah out of His Mercy and Generosity Willed that he be with a generation of the khalaf. And I really think that there is more to what words can describe these ‘ulemaa, really they are servants of Allah who are on a “whole ‘nother level”(of eeman). And we pray that we benefit from their works and efforts here and enjoy their company in the Hereafter.

Wa’Allahu ta’aala ‘Alam

    Ibn Hyderabadee,

    JazakallahKhair for this wonderful post. I thoroughly enjoyed, alhamdulillah. Actually, it’s quite an interesting look at the life of one of the Great Shuyookh in contemporary times.

    I know one of Sheikh Ibn Uthaymeen’s long-time American students and this brother also tells us interesting stories about the Sheikh. Particularly with regard to his calm and humble nature, mashallah.

    Cool post akhi, Shukran!

    wa’alaykum as Salaam wa Rahamtullah

    In the PDF it says that the article was originally published in “al Mutamayyizah” magazine, Issue No. 45, Ramadhaan 1427. I wouldn’t know where to find that magazine or that issue. If you can please let me know insha’Allah.

    Mashallah that was an excellent interview. jazak allahu kahairan for posting it. subhanallah it brought tears to my eyes. My sister actually sent me the link. she really enjoyed it to.

    We were her in saudi when he died. the weird thing was that we had all heard that he had taken ill and that he was going to die at any time. I went to my friends house and when we got into the car it was about 10 or 11 at night. and subhanallah we heard the athaan for the prayer and i kept thinking isha is over what are they praying. and at that very moment i thought to myself he died. and sure enough we got home and my husband heard the news and told me. btw it was the eclipse prayer that we prayed that night…subhanallah it felt like a sign from allah.
    may allah have mercy on him …ameen.
