Asslamo Allaikum, All I ASK is some tolerance and understanding from Brothers/Sisters who learn their Islam from Google and this DOES NOT MEAN being tolerant to opinions which have no basis in Qur’aan & Sunnah! Scenario one: I had an interesting conversation with someone sometime back about an issue n Fiqh which shall remain hidden. I quoted Imam Ibnul-Haj’r Al-Asqalani (RA) & he kept on quoting Shaykh Al-Albani (RA), just kept on going and going… So I asked do you consider Shaykh Al-Albani (RA) to be a bigger Muhaddith then Imam Ibnul-Haj’r Al-Asqalani (RA), He said, “YES” I asked, “Do you even know WHO Imam Ibnul-Haj’r Al-Asqalani (RA) was?” He said, “Yes” I was shocked and there was no point in taking this conversation any further. For those who don’t know, Imam Ibnul-Haj’r Al-Asqalani (RA) is the commentator of Saheeh Bukhari and he wrote “Fathul-Bari Bi Sharh Saheeh Bukhari” , he is one of the greatest Muhadatheen in Muslim Ummah and his commentary is regarded as the BENCH-MARK in understanding and deciphering Saheeh Bukhari! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ibn_Hajar_al-Asqalani Scenario Two: This time a Brother who quoted something from Shaykh Al-Albani (RA)’s book about Salah and I pointed him to the original Hadeeth in Abi Dawud and the commentary (Aunul-Mabood Sharh Sunan Abi Dawud) where the Hadeeth and opinions of majority of Scholars are discussed in detail & then islam-qa where the opinion is different to Shaykh Al-Albani (RA)! His reply, “You are making my head hurt”! So he had been going around condemning everyone else’s Salah based on ONE BOOK without checking the original Hadeeth & what the Muhadetheen & Scholars of Islam had to say about the matter! BIG MISTAKE! I find most Brothers/Sisters do the same….ONE BOOK and EVERYBODY ELSE is WRONG! Scenario Three: Take a good look at this thread… http://www.turntoislam.com/forum/showthread.php?t=17158 Take a look at post 58 by Brother Abu.Amirah where a Hadeeth is quoted: Annas(r.a) said that during the prophet’s (s.a.w) time they used to avoid praying between pillars. (At-Tirmithi 229) Now take a look at my post and the 2nd answer by Shaykh Uthaymeen (RA) and pay attention to the last two lines & I quote: ...because exceptional circumstances are governed by special rulings, and necessity and need also have special rulings.... You EITHER see the point OR you don't. I am not saying it, Shaykh Uthaymeen (RA) is saying it!
