Damaaj: “From the Lighthouses of Islam”

Shaykh Rabee’ Ibn Hadee Al-Madkhalee was asked on the 23rd of Ramadan 1424:

What is your opinion of going to study at Daarul Hadith at Damaaj, Yemen, knowing that I am a new student?

The Imam answered by saying:

“Indeed it is befitting that you journey to this strong hold from the strong holds of Islaam, to this lighthouse from the lighthouses of Islaam. shading_lightingfinal.jpgIndeed journey should be made to it and the knowledge should be sought there. He (the student of knowledge) will find – inshAllah – much good there and he will find the Sunnah and guidance and he will find there adherence to the Prophet (may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him). By Allah, we encourage studying at this abode which is from the strong holds and lighthouses of the Sunnah. In it – inshAllah – are people of the Sunnah and guidance and knowledge, we ask Allah that He keeps them firm on the Sunnah and that He bring about benefit by them and that he make them from among those who carry the banner of Sunnah, in this time period in which innovations have accumulated and trials have evolved. We seek refuge in Allaah.

So all praise are due to Allaah so whoever wants good and wants guidance and whoever wants to be far away from tribulations, he must cling to the strongholds of Sunnah – all praise are due to Allaah – they are numerous in many countries and in particular this strong hold which I see in it clear distinction and all praise are due to Allaah to make it go smooth for the one who strives to it seeking the guidance from its sources and seeking an enlightenment from the Sunnah and good that is there.”

The noble brother Abu Abdur-Rahmaan, the student of Shaykh Rabee’ ibn Hadee al-Madkhalee, said that he heard Shaykh Madkhalee say:

“Verily ash-Shaykh Yahya is a person who possesses knowlege and Abul-Hassan (al-Misree) is not equivalent to the shoe of Shaykh Yahya al-Haajooree.”

    As Salaam Alaykum

    lWhat are the best salafiyyah institutes to study arabic for someone who is over 30 years old and doesn’t have a lot of money? I’m American and I read the Quran but with difficulty but I want to be able to understand what I read as well as understand the works of the major scholars.

    Jazakallah Khairan
