Shaikh al-Albaani and Shaikh ʿUzair and Manuscripts

by The Albaani Site

Shaikh ʿUzair would undertake the huge task of indexing manuscripts. He did so at the library of the Islamic University in Medinah over three years, and he said, “During work on the indexing there I met Shaikh al-Albaani, raḥimahullāh. He would come to the library to copy from the manuscripts and people would crowd around him wanting to speak to him while he was busy copying, so they would give him salām and he would reply and then go back to copying. I was amazed at his dedication to copying out from the manuscripts.”
