“How Many Intend To Do Good But Never Achieve It”

Shaykh Muhammad Nāsir ud-Dīn Al-Albānī was regarded as one of the great scholars of our time. He was the son of a scholar, born in 1332 A.H. (1914 C.E) in Ashkodera, the former capital of Albania. He studied under some of the learned scholars of our time, from Pakistan, India, Syria and Morocco, to mention a few. The Shaykh had Ijaazah (permission to teach) from Shaykh Bahjatul-Baytaar through whom his Isnaad (chain of teaching) stretches back to Imam Ahmad bin Hanbal (d.241 A.H). A momentous one hundred and twelve books were authored and compiled by him. From these books are his analysis and checking of the hadeeth books of: Abu Dawood, Al-Nisaa’ee, Ibn Maajah and At-Tirmidhi. Where he checked and graded every single hadeeth with a level of authenticity.

This is a discussion between Shaykh Al-Allāmah Muhammad Nāsir ud-Dīn Al-Albānī rahimahullāh and those from Jamā’at ut-Tablīgh regarding some of their innovated practices. The Shaykh repeatedly asks them to bring proof regarding going out 40 days (khurooj) in which they are not able. Likewise the history of this group is mentioned clarifying the sufi links of their leaders. Their clear call is not to rectify the people’s belief but to call people only to fadhaail al-‘Amaal (virtuous actions). Shaykh Muhammad Nāsir ud-Dīn Al-Albānī further emphasises that their call is not established upon knowledge since the one who doesn’t have something can not give it.
