Al-Albaani’s Very High Opinion of Five Scholars
by The Albaani Site
“Al-Albaani used to regard Taqiyud-Deen al-Hilaali as one of the five scholars the likes of whom he had not seen in terms of their knowledge and tahqiq, those five being: Ibn Baaz, Taqiyud-Deen al-Hilaali, Abdur-Rahmaan al-Mubaarakfuri, Badee’ud-Deen as Sindhi and ash-Shanqiti, may Allaah have mercy on them all.”
