Al-Albaani and Fame


Shaikh Abu Islaam Saalih Taa Haa said, “A man one day invited the Shaikh to visit him in his house and announced the visit on some media outlets and so a large number of people gathered to see the Shaikh and listen to him.  When the Shaikh came to know of that he refused to go to the invite. I later asked him about his reason for not going, and he said, ‘Showing off destroys a person.’
