who was Imaam Muhammad Naasirud-Deen al-Albaanee (rahimahullahu ta’ala)?

The Allaamah, the Shaykh, the Faqih, Abdul-Aziz ibn Baaz, (rahimahullahu ta’ala), said along with his brothers, the Shaykh from the The Standing Committee for Scholarly Research and Issuing Religious Verdicts, and they are the eminent Shaykh : Abdullaah ibn Qu’ood, Abdullaah ibn Ghudayaan, Abdur-Razzaaq al-Afeefi, said, “The man is well-known with us for knowledge, excellence, venerating the Sunnah and serving it, aiding the Madhhab (path) of Ahlus-Sunnah wal-Jamaa’ah in warning against bigotry and blind following, and his books are beneficial.” This occurs in the 12th volume from the Fatwas of The Standing Committee for Scholarly Research and Issuing Religious Verdicts, p. 224.

The Allaamah, the Faqeeh, the Shaykh, Muhammad Ibn Saalih al-Uthaymeen, (rahimahullahu ta’ala), said, “That which I know about the Shaykh through the times I met him, and they were few, is that he was extremely eager to act upon the Sunnah, and to fight innovations, whether they were in matters of creed or action.” He also said, “I came to know this about him through what I read from his works, and that he has a copious amount of knowledge in hadith, their chains of narrations and the understanding taken from them, and that Allaah has benefitted many people through what he has written, as regards knowledge, methodology and turning to the science of hadith, and this is a great benefit for the Muslims, and all praise is due to Allaah.”And he said, “As for verifying and checking, then how excellent he is [for you to recourse to].” And one time he saw a cassette on which was written, “By the Muhaddith (Scholar of Hadith) of Syria Muhammad Naasirud-Deen al-Albaanee.” So he said, “Rather the Muhaddith of this age.”

Shaykh Ahmad bin Yahyaa an-Najmee (rahimahullahu ta’ala), said, “Shaykh Muhammad Naasirud-Deen al-Albaanee, the great hadith scholar [muhaddith], the famous scholar, author of beneficial works and valuable checkings, who settled in Syria, was Salafi in creed, and expended great efforts in checking and verifying [hadiths] which none can match, so may Allaah reward him with good.”

Shaykh Muqbil ibn Haadi al-Waadi’ee (rahimahullahu ta’ala) said, “As for what follows: then I have been asked time and again about Shaykh Naasirud-Deen al-Albaanee, may Allaah protect him, so I say, as many of the Salaf would say when asked about someone who is greater in worth than the one asked, “I should not be asked about so and so! He should be asked about me …” Indeed no match can be found for Shaykh Muhammad Naasirud-Deen al-Albaanee, may Allaah the Most High, protect him, in [the field of] the science of hadith. And through his knowledge and books Allaah has [caused the Muslims to] benefit many, many times more than what those [people] zealous for Islaam have done upon [their] ignorance, the people of revolutions and [the people who want to] overthrow [governments]. And that which I believe and which I hold to be religion before Allaah is that the Shaykh Muhammad Naasirud-Deen al-Albaanee, may Allaah protect him, is from the revivers which the [following] saying of the Prophet, (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam), applies to, “Indeed, for this nation, at the beginning of every one hundred years, Allaah sends someone who will renew its religion for it.” Reported by Abu Dawud and al-Iraaqi and others declared it to be authentic. [So] when you come to know that the Shaykh, may Allaah protect him, has no match in the knowledge of the Sunnah, what then do you think his rank is in understanding the texts? That which I know about him is that his understanding of the texts is like that of our major scholars of today, nevertheless I say as Imaam Maalik, may Allaah have mercy on him, said, “Everyone has their saying accepted and rejected, except for the companion of this grave,” i.e., the Prophet of Allaah, (sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam).”

Shaykh Muhammad Amaan ibn Alee al-Jaamee, (rahimahullahu ta’ala) said, “I have mentioned a number of times that I love Shaykh Naasirud-Deen al-Albaaneeand I hold him in high esteem, and truly, I ask Allaah to bear witness and then I ask all of you who are present to bear witness that I love his eminence, Shaykh Naasirud-Deen al-Albaanee and I hold him in great esteem, and [that I hold] that he is from the people of knowledge and from the major scholars of hadith. So it is obligatory that we love the people of hadith and the people of knowledge, the people of excellence, we love and respect them.”
