Ibn Taymiyyah and Al-Albaani


When the Shaikh of the Shaikhs of Islaam, Ibn Taymiyyah, passed away, “The Muʾaḍhin of the Fortress [in which the prison was] cried out from atop the minaret of its mosque [about it], and the guards spoke about it, and the people gathered, the markets that would normally open early remained shut, people gathered, crying and speaking well of him. And his brother, Zainud-Deen ʿAbdur-Raḥmān, told them that in prison they had both finished reading the Quran eighty times, and when reading for the eighty-first time they had stopped at the Most High’s Saying: ‘Indeed, the righteous will be amid Gardens and rivers, at the Seat of Honour in the presence of the Most Powerful Sovereign.’” [Al-Qamar­: 54:54-55] Al-Maqṣad al-Arshad, 1/138.

This is that prison:

And then centuries later, the Mujaddid, al-Albaani, was imprisoned in that very same place, raḥimahumallāh.
