Shaikh al-Albaani’s Advice: “I Have Taken Three Things Upon Myself.”


Shaikh Abū Islām Ṣāliḥ Ṭāhā, may Allāh have mercy on him said, “One day I prayed Fajr in my mosque and then went to Shaikh al-Albaani’s house, may Allāh have mercy on him, where I found him in his library as usual. After he finished answering questions I had put to him, I asked, ‘Shaikh, I want you to give me some advice specifically for me.’

So he said, ‘I advise you with the same thing I have advised myself with—I have taken three things upon myself:

That I act upon what I know as much as I am able to. That I don’t look at what other people have. And that I don’t say something I will have to make an excuse for tomorrow.’”
