    Post 'Ulamaa' Rabbaaniyyoon (Firmly Ground Scholars) of Today - Shaykh Saalih as-Suhaymee

    At the conclusion of one of his lectures explaining the Foundations of Eemaan as part of the Imaam Daar al-Hijrah Islaamic Seminar at Masjid al-Qiblatayn in al-Madeenah in 1432 [1], Shaykh Saalih As-Suhaymee (may Allaah preserve him) advised the students with a number of excellent points of advice in light of issues of differing that tend to distract them and keep them from benefitting from their studies.

    While this great advice has been translated into English, and given the title, ”The Muslims are Tired,” and it is essential to review in its entirity, perhaps the most important point in the lecture that Shaykh Saalih offered, after fearing Allaah and being sincere to Him alone, is the solution he guided the Muslims to – Returning to the senior scholars in affairs of differing.

    To emphasize this point, we would like to list the names of those Shaykh Saalih as-Suhaymee guided the Muslims to, their senior and most grounded and noteworthy scholars, referring to them as “rabaaniyyeen“. [2]

    ■ Shaykh ‘Abdul-’Azeez ibn ‘Abdillaah ibn Baaz
    ■ Shaykh Muhammad ibn Saalih al-’Uthaymeen
    ■ Shaykh Hammaad ibn Muhammad al-Ansaaree
    ■ Shaykh Muhammad Amaan al-Jaamee
    ■ Shaykh Muhammad Naasir ad-Deen al-Albaanee

    These are the ones who have passed away, may Allaah have mercy on them. Then the shaykh went on to mention a list of contemporary scholars we should refer to:

    ■ Our shaykh, the Muftee, ‘Abdul-’Azeez ibn ‘Abdillaah Aal ash-Shaykh
    ■ Shaykh Saalih ibn Fowzaan al-Fowzaan
    ■ Shaykh ‘Abdullaah Ghudayyaan
    ■ Shaykh Saalih al-Luhaydaan
    ■ Shaykh Saalih ibn ‘Abdil-’Azeez Aal ash-Shaykh
    ■ Shaykh Ahmad an-Najmee
    ■ Shaykh Rabee’ ibn Haadee al-Madkhalee
    ■ Shaykh Zayd ibn Haadee al-Madkhalee
    ■ Shaykh ‘Alee ibn Naasir al-Faqeehee
    ■ Shaykh ‘Abdul-Muhsin ibn Hamad al-’Abbaad

    Then the shaykh began to mention the many students of knowledge who are upon their way, like Shaykh Muhammad as-Subayyil, but he decided against it, fearing that some people might say, “Why did you mention this one but not that one?”

    The shaykh emphasized that the list was a mention of examples of those we are to refer to, and it was not intended to be comprehensive.

    May Allaah, the Most High, bless us all and grant us the love and respect for our senior scholars which they deserve, without exaggeration or neglect.
