The Humble Shaikh | Al-Albaani and the Student who Needed to go to the Airport
by The Albaani Site
On the phone with a student of knowledge …
Al-Albaani: I was saying do you have anyone to drop you off, I’m ready if you don’t?
Student: No, no, I can get there, inshā Allaah, the brothers will drop me, bi idhnillaah.
Al-Albaani: Even though your answer is more complete [than the last one you gave] you still haven’t answered fully.
Student: There are some brothers who study with Shaikh ʿAlī who will drop me to the airport.
Al-Albaani: Yaʿnī, did they say that to you?
Al-Albaani: And they promised you?
Student: Yaʿnī, they didn’t confirm it fully but on the basis that I sort it out with them tomorrow.
Al-Albaani: Okay, I’m saying for sure that if you’re not able to sort it out I am ready [to drop you].
Student: May Allaah reward you with good, O Shaikh.
Al-Albaani: I try to get closer to Allaah the Mighty and Majestic by being at the service of students of knowledge like yourself.
Student: May Allaah reward you with good, may Allah bless you!
Al-Albaani: And bless you too.
Student: If something happens and they can’t drop me I will call you inshaa Allaah.
Al-Albaani: Yes good, do it.
Student: May Allah reward you with good.
Al-Albaani: Ahlan wa sahlan …
Student: Salāmun alaikum.
Al-Albaani: Wa ʿalaikum salām wa raḥmatullāhi wa barkātuhu …
