Maqam of Shaykh al-Akbar Ibn Arabi Rahimahullah

An interesting discussion between Allamah Abdul ‘Aziz ‘Uyun al-Sud al-Hanafi and al-Albani:

Shaykh Muhammad ‘Awwamah relates the following incident. He writes:

“This precision (in the wording of the Messenger of Allah, sallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) may only be acquired from the narrations of the scholars, or from their notifications regarding the difference of the narrators in their narrations. This is based on (oral) transmission and learning. It cannot be verified by printing accuracy. This is a clear matter about which no student of ‘Ilm (knowledge) needs to be instructed.

“However, I was driven to write a special note on this by the following incident, which causes laughter as well as tears, narrated to me by our Shaykh, the ‘Allamah of Hims, who was one of his kind, the Shaykh of the Qurra and the custodian of fatawa in Hims, the pious Muqri, Mufassir, and Faqih, Shaykh ‘Abdul ‘Aziz ‘Uyun as-Sud (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) who passed away at the time of Sahar (before dawn) on the 14th of Rajab A.H., (may Allah Ta’ala shower mercy on him). He related to me at my home in Halab some nine years ago as follows:

“A man who was not known to me entered the Masjid just before the Zuhr Adhan. I later came to know who he was. He was Shaykh Nasir Al-Albani! (a leading scholar of the rejection of taqlid) – He sat down waiting for the Adhan. When the Mu’addhin said:

اللّٰهُ أكبرَ اللّٰهُ أكبر

with a fatha vowel on the letter raa, the man exclaimed with a shudder of anger: “This is wrong! This is Bid’ah.” I asked: “What is incorrect and Bid’ah?” He replied: “This is in contradiction to what is in ‘Sahih Muslim’!” So I asked the question: “What is in ‘Sahih Muslim’?” The man said: “In ‘Sahih Muslim’ it is mentioned as follows:

اللّٰهُ أكبرُ اللّٰهُ أكبر

with the dammah vowel on the raa.”

Shaykh ‘Abdul ‘Aziz then asked him in his composed and respectful manner that he was known for: “Did you learn ‘Sahih Muslim’ from your Shuyukh (teachers), who learnt it from their Shuyukhb up to Imam Muslim (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) that Imam Muslim narrated it with a dammah on the raa, or are you referring to what the typists have typed?” Our Shaykh said: “He remained silent and so did I. He then performed Salah and went away.”

Shaykh Muhammad ‘Awwamah comments: “The intelligent should take a lesson from this…”
