Shaykh Muhammad al-Madkhalee’s interaction with Shaykh Fawzaan & his status with the Senior Scholars
Inshaa’Allaah there are many things to learn from this short clip:-
1. How to interact with the Scholars, Duaat and our elders
2. How to ask questions
3. Status of Shaykh Muhammad bin Haadee in the eyes of the Senior Scholars. 4 seconds into the video, Shaykh Fawzaan refers to Shaykh Muhammad al-Madkhalee as “Shaykh Muhammad… Muhammad Hakami”. Perhaps the reason can be understood from the narration of Ustaadh Abdulilah Lahmaamee below…
Sheikh Falaah said of Shaykh Muhammad bin Haadee al-Madkhali that he indeed was blessed by Allaah in bringing the proof where it was needed and his memory mashaallaah of Shaykh Haafidh al-Hakami’s thousands of lines of poetry who is considered to be his sheikh’s sheikh. Also sheikh Falah mentioned when he visited a month ago that Sheikh Muhammad having learnt much at a young age amidst a scholarly family, indeed has excelled many in his age and those older than him.
Check this video for proof of what Shaykh Falaah has mentioned above
It was narrated a few months ago by Shaykh Khaalid ibn Abdur Rahmaan al-Misree that the Imaam of Jarh wat Ta’deel of our time, Dr. Rabee’ al-Madkhalee called Dr. Muhammad ibn Haadee al-Madkhalee an “Allaamah“. Click http://www.sahab.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=126731
On a personal note, I (ابو عبدالله ساجد) had the opportunity to sit in one of the lectures of Shaykh Muhammad before Hajj last year and also ask him a few questions after the lecture at Masjid Qiblatain in Madeenah. Mashaa’Allaah laa quwata illa billaah, the Shaykh is very charismatic and full of energy. When he is around there’s a buzz in the place and his energy and enthusiasm passes on to others. WAllahul Muwaffiq.

As salaamu 'alaykum wa rahmatullah I really apologize for not posting anything in quite some time. Both me and Br. Sajid have been really busy with other things. May Allah make our situations easy for all of us. Ameen. Just read this post on another blog and it brought me to tears subhanAllah. We go through trials in this life but when we read about other people's difficulties, it really puts your situation in perspective. Read this story and you will know what I mean...
This is a clear example from the Salaf (i.e. pious predecessors) of how to call to the religion of Allah indirectly with your character, as sometimes calling a person directly may not prove the most effective way. Many accepted Islam because of hearing about the divine character of Prophet Muhammad (Sallahu alaihi wa salam), even before they met him…as all of us did!!!
Hassan Al Basree (Rahimahillah) had a neighbor who was a Christian. This neighbor had a toilet on the roof of his apartment and it used to leak through a hole in the roof of Hassan Al Basree’s apartment. Hassan placed a bucket beneath the hole to catch the urine that would leak through it and discard the contents at the end of each day. This continued for 20 years.
Then one day, Hassan fell ill and his Christian neighbor came to visit him. When he entered, the neighbor noticed the bucket of urine that was leaking through the hole in his ceiling and asked Hassan astoundingly: “How long have you been tolerating this harm from me?!” Hassan replied: “For 20 years!”
So the Christian neighbor took off his belt (which was the clothing of the Christians during that time) and accepted Islam…!!!

Videos worthy of watching again and again…. maa sha ‘Allah.
SubhanAllah. Amazing news.
The person who was the strongest critic of the minarets on top of the mosques (only 4 mosques) in Switzerland embraces Islaam after studying it.
Allahu akbar. How a person is guided to Islaam after having been a strong enemy to it.
Swiss antagonist of minarets embraces Islam
RENOWNED Swiss politician Daniel Streich, who rose to fame for his campaign against minarets of mosques, has embraced Islam.
A member of the Swiss People’s Party (SVP) and a well-known politician, Daniel Streich was the first man who had launched a drive for imposition of ban on mosques minarets, and to lock the mosques in Switzerland. The proclamation of Streich’s conversion to Islam has created furore in Swiss politics, besides causing a tremor for those who supported ban on construction of mosques minarets.
Streich propagated his anti-Islamic movement far and wide in the country, sowed seeds of indignation and scorn for Islam among the people, and paved way for public opinion against pulpits and minarets of mosques.
But now Streich has become a soldier of Islam. His anti-Islam thoughts finally brought him so close to this religion that he embraced Islam. He is ashamed of his doings now and desires to construct the most beautiful mosque of Europe in Switzerland.
