Sitting And Breaking Fast With Shaykh Rabee (hafidhahullaah) Narrated By Brother Abu Adam Finch (hafidhahullaah)

بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ

اهْدِنَا الصِّرَاطَ الْمُسْتَقِيمَ – صِرَاطَ الَّذِينَ أَنْعَمْتَ عَلَيْهِمْ غَيْرِ الْمَغْضُوبِ عَلَيْهِمْ وَلَا الضَّالِّينَ

Guide us to the Straight Way – The Way of those on whom you have bestowed Your Grace, not (the way) of those who earned Your Anger (such as the Jews), nor of those who went astray (such as the Christians).1: 6-7

Sitting And Breaking Fast With Shaykh Rabee (hafidhahullaah)

Narrated By : Brother Abu Adam Finch (hafidhahullaah)


As-Salaamu ‘Alaykum,


All praise is due to Allah, and may exaltation and safety be granted to Muhammad, his family, his companions, and those who aid them. To proceed :

During the month of Ramadhaan, our elder scholar and adviser, Shaykh Rabee Ibn Haadee al-Madkhalee, may Allah protect him from evil, holds brief sittings and a breaking of one’s fast at his home. Today, it went as follows :

Firstly, a few reciters took turns reciting a good portion of the Qur’aan, nearly all of the attendees, including the Shaykh, held their Qur’aans and followed along.

Secondly, the Shaykh read from and made comments on Tafseer Ibn Katheer.

Briefly, one the points he discussed was the prohibition and dangers of swearing by other than Allah. He brought attention to the narration of ‘Abdullah Ibn Mas’ood :I’d rather speak an untruth and swear by Allah than speak the truth and swear by other than Allah.”

Lastly, the Shaykh invited and joined all of the attendees in a simple iftaar of soup, small meat wraps, a bean dip, bread, pudding, juice, and water. The Shaykh humbly sat on the floor and ate his food with his guests.

The purpose of this brief account is simply to show the manners and humbleness of the scholars of the Sunnah, and to show how they are spending their time during this blessed month of Ramadhaan.

I ask Allah, the All-Protecting, to protect the scholars of our religion from all harm, just as I ask Him to allow us to benefit from their knowledge, wisdom, and manners. Indeed, He is able to answer our supplications.



Who is Shaykh Rabee Ibn Haadee al- Madkhalee (hafidhahullaah)?

Scanned copies of praises/letters/introductions by various mashaykh like Imaam Albani, Imam Ibn Baz, Allamah Muhammad al-Banna, Allamah Fawzaan and others (hafidhahumullah) can be seen on the Shaykh Rabee’s own website http://rabee.net/pics.aspx

Shaykh Saalih as-Suhaymee (hafidhahullaah) recommended Shaykh Rabee as one of the contemporary Scholars whose way (which is the way of Salaf us Saalih) the Muslims should follow. Listen to the audio :

Shaykh Muhamad ibn Abdulwahab al Bana (rahimahullahu ta’ala) said : “The Imaam of Jarh wa Ta’diel is ower trustworthy reliable brother Rabee ibn Hadee,Wallahi. Imaam of jarh we ta’diel of 14 century. Allah sends at the head of every century someone that will reform this religion. And the reformer of Jarh we ta’diel with justice and trustworthiness and all safety, by Allah is Rabee ibn Hadi. And I challenge everyone who says that he speaks without evidence. Maa shaa Allah , may Allah preserve shaykh Rabee” Listen to the audio: click here

click here to read/listen how Allaamah Saalih al-Luhaydaan (hafidhahullaah) praised & defended Allaamah Rabee’ hafidhahumullaah. He (Allaamah Saalih al-Luhaydaan) quote : There is no doubt that he (Shaykh Rabee) is from the people of knowledge, and he is from the students of our Shaykh, Shaykh Abdul ‘Azeez (Ibn Baaz) (when they were) in Madinah, and he (Shaykh Rabee’) used to be from the teachers of Madinah (Islamic) University. I do not know any deviations of him neither in Aqeedah nor in Akhlaaq (mannerism), rather my perception of him that he is good and that he is from the people of goodness, as well as being from those who battle the callers to fitnah.

Ash-Shaykh Dr. Jabir At-Tayyib wrote an introduction for Shaykh Rabee’s book “Jamaa’ah Waahidah, Laa Jamaa’aat Siraat Waahid, Laa Asharaat” (A Single Jamaa’ah, not Many Jamaa’ahs, A Single Path, not Tens of [Paths]) and in that he praised Shaykh Rabee’ and called him Aalim Jaleel (excellent Scholar).

Imaam al-Albaanee (rahimahullahu ta’ala) sent a letter to Allamah Rabee’ saying, “Everything with which you have refuted Sayyid Qutb is the truth (haqq) and is correct (sawab). And it will become sufficiently clear from this refutation to everyone who has read anything from “The Islamic Heritage” that Sayyid Qutb had no knowledge of the Usool (fundamentals) or the Furoo’ (subsidiary matters) of Islaam. So may Allaah reward you with the best of reward, O brother Rabee for fulfilling the obligation of explaining and uncovering his ignorance and deviation from Islaam.” To see the picture of the actual letter of the Shaykh please click here. For more praise by Imaam Albaanee for Allamah Rabee’ please visit the Shaykh’s official website by clicking here.

Listen to the monumental statement (Arabic with English translation) of Imaam al-Albaanee (rahimahullahu ta’ala) where he declares Shaykh Rabee the flag-bearer of al-Jarh wat-Ta’deel (disparaging and appraising) in our times!


Shaykh Ahmad Ibn ‘Umar Bazmool (hafidhahullaah)said “…for the one to make a statement against Shaykh Rabee is foolishness. Rather for anyone to make a statement against Shaykh Rabee [then] he has removed himself from Salafiyyah in totality… Just like when the people used to say during the time of Imaam Ahmad, who was a man known as the Imaam of Ahlus-Sunnah. [And when] one made a statement against him, he was looked at as not being one of the People of the Sunnah [but] as being one of the People of Desires…… So when we find the likes of so-and-so saying something against Shaykh Rabee, then the case is the same as someone saying something against Imaam Ahmad. Because Shaykh Rabee is known for defending the Sunnah…” From the audio : “Be careful whom you take your deen from!”

“O Allaah! Show us the truth as truth so that we may follow it, and show us falsehood as falsehood, so that we may abstain from it.” Ameen.

Baarak-Allaahu Feekum, wa sal-Allaahu wa sallam ‘alaa Nabiyyinaa Muhammad

“And whosoever contradicts and opposes the Messenger Muhammad (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) after the right path has been shown clearly to him, and follow other than the believers way, We shall keep him in the path he has chosen, and burn him in the hell-what and evil destination (4 : 115)
