    Shaykh Muhammad Ibn Saalih Ibn 'Uthaymeen

    www.fatwa-online.com

    Abu 'Abdullaah Muhammad ibn Saalih ibn Muhammad ibn 'Uthaymeen at-Tameemee an-Najdee was born in the city of Unayzah, Qaseem Region on 27th Ramadhaan 1347 A.H./1926 C.E. in a famous religious family.

    He received his education from many prominent scholars like Shaykh 'Abdur-Rahmaan as-Sa'dee, Shaykh Muhammad Ameen ash-Shanqeetee and Shaykh 'Abdul-'Azeez ibn Baaz.

    When he entered into teaching, a great number of students from inside and outside Saudi Arabia benefited from him. He had his own unique style of interpretation and explanation of religious points. He was from among those scholars who served Islaam without any type of religious prejudice and kept themselves away from the limitations of blind-following. He was distinguished in his great exertion of effort in religious matters and analogical deductions which clearly prove the religious understanding he possessed, and the correct usage of the principles of religion, he adopted.

    In giving religious verdicts, like Shaykh ibn Baaz, his Fataawa were based on evidence from the Qur.aan and Sunnah. He had about fifty compilations to his credit. He taught Religious Fundamentals at the Sharee'ah Faculty of Imaam Muhammad ibn Sa'ood Islaamic University, Qaseem Branch. He was also a member of the Council of Senior Scholars of the Kingdom, and the Imaam and Khateeb of the big Mosque of Unayzah city.

    The Shaykh passed away on Wednesday 15 Shawwaal 1421 A.H. / 10 January 2001 C.E. He was 74 years of age. May Allaah (subhaanahu wa ta'aala) have Mercy upon his soul, aameen.

    What the newspapers had to say... - new photographs added

    The following audio file is that of Shaykh Ibn 'Uthaymeen leading the taraaweeh prayers in al-Masjid al-Haraam in Makkah. Shaykh Subayyal, the head imaam of al-Masjid al-Haraam, mentions that Shaykh Ibn 'Uthaymeen led the salaah in al-Masjid al-Haraam 5 times, maa shaa.-Allaah:

    Uthaimeen and the University Inkpot

    “When he, may Allaah have mercy on him, needed to fill his pen with ink from the inkwell in the university’s library to use it for things related specifically to the university, before leaving he would empty the ink remaining in his pen into the inkwell because it was specifically for the university.”

    Al-Jaami’ li-Hayaatil-’Allaamah Muhammad Ibn Saalih al-’Uthaimeen, p. 25.

    Uthaimeen when He would be Absent from His Assigned Duties
    at his Mosque and when Late for Work

    “An amazing example of his piety was that when he would be absent from leading the prayer at the Al-Jaami’ al-Kabir [mosque] in ’Unaizah where he was the appointed Imaam and for which he would receive a monthly stipend, he would give the money equal to his absence, even if it was only one day, to the person who covered him as Imaam.

    Likewise, when he was teaching at the educational academy in ’Unaizah, if he were late to work—even if it were only a few minutes—he would write his lateness down in the [signing in] register and next to it write, ‘Without an excuse.’”

    Al-Jaami’ li-Hayaatil-’Allaamah Muhammad Ibn Saalih al-’Uthaimeen, pp. 24-25.

    Uthaimeen and the Fax Machine

    “Shaikh Badr ibn Naadir al-Mashaari mentions the following, ‘The Shaikh phoned one of the Shaikhs who worked in the courts [as a judge] so that he could send a personal letter to him which had no connection to the courts but was for him personally, so the judge told Shaikh ’Uthaimeen that there was a fax machine next to him to which he could send the letter. So ’Uthaimeen asked him, ‘Isn’t that the court’s fax machine.’ ‘Yes,’ replied the judge. ’Uthaimeen said, ‘How can I send a personal letter at the cost [of thebait al-maal] of the Muslims? Go and buy a fax machine so I can send you this letter,’ and so he did and the Shaikh then sent the letter.’”

    Al-Jaami’ li-Hayaatil-’Allaamah Muhammad Ibn Saalih al-’Uthaimeen, p. 24.

    Uthaimeen Issuing a Fatwa, then Withholding and
    Going to Ask His Shaikh for Guidance, His Shaikh Being Ibn Baaz

    “And this shows the pinnacle of his piety in issuing fatwas, and this was concerning glucose injections, in one of his lectures he mentioned a ruling concerning them and one of the people present objected with a medical opinion which went against the fatwa that the Shaikh had given, so the Shaikh announced that he [now] withheld judgement until he would go and ask his Shaikh, the ’Allaamah ’Abdul-’Aziz ibn Baaz, may Allaah have mercy on him. Then the next day he came back and gave them the fatwa of his Shaikh.”

    Al-Jaami’ li-Hayaatil-’Allaamah Muhammad Ibn Saalih al-’Uthaimeen, p. 23.

    Uthaimeen and the Prince of Qaseem’s Gift

    “The Shaikh’s son, ’Abdullah ibn Saalih al-’Uthaimeen told me the following, he said:

    ‘Prince ’Abdul-Ilaah ibn ’Abdul-’Aziz Aal-Su’ood, the Ameer of Qaseem, sent a new American car to the Shaikh as a gift. When the Shaikh got to his house he found the car next to it and was told about what had happened. So the car sat there for five days without being driven, then the Shaikh having made his decision called his son ’Abdullah and said: ‘Take the car to the prince and thank him for what he did but tell him that I don’t need it.’

    So the car was sent back to the prince. The Shaikh had an old, cheap car, he wouldn’t pay heed to the appearance of his ride, and he passed away and still had that same old car.’”

    Al-Jaami’ li-Hayaatil-’Allaamah Muhammad Ibn Saalih al-’Uthaimeen, p. 23.

    Uthaimeen and Money Offered to him for Giving Lectures

    “The accountant for the administration of girl’s education in ’Unaizah presented the Shaikh with some money for the lectures that he had given in the Faculty of Education for women in ’Unaizah, so al-’Uthaimeen said, ‘And you want me to draw a wage for [what I hold to be] my obligations towards my daughters and sisters in religion?’”

    Al-Jaami’ li-Hayaatil-’Allaamah Muhammad Ibn Saalih al-’Uthaimeen, p. 22.
