Shaykh Waseeyullaah Abbaas
Abu Ziyaad Ahmad Hamdaan

All praise is for Allah. May the Salaah and Salaam be upon the Messenger of Allah. As to what follows: We visited the Shaykh, the Muhaddith (scholar of Hadeeth) Waseeyullaah Abbaas (may Allah preserve him) in his home in Makkah. He hosted us as guest may Allah reward him with good and received us in a good manner. We sat with him for over an hour and a half. He gave to myself as well as the brothers who were there with me precious valuable pieces of advices and instructions. From them:

  1. Encouragement to seek knowledge and striving to attain it.
  2. Calling to Tawheed with truthfulness especially in the lands of the disbelievers being that the brothers who were with me are from America and Britain.
  3. The Shaykh advised us and the Salafi youth not to put oneself forward in matters which are not befitting for one to speak about except for the elders/ Major Scholars. And from the most important of these matters, the matter of Jarh wa Ta'deel, for it is left to the Ulamaa, and from these scholars, is the likes of Shaykh Rabee'. He spoke good of Shaykh Rabee' and said that Shaykh Rabee' taught him al-Aqeedah al-Waasitiyyah and how he benefited much from him when he went to secondary school in Madeenah an-Nabawiyyah...
  4. Then he mentioned matters specifically related to the da'wah in the west and gave examples of how one should use wisdom and gave much advice regarding that.
  5. Then the Shaykh answered the questions of all the brothers who were present and they are:
    1. Abu Yusuf Khaleefah Al-Amriki.
    2. Abu Muhammad Naadir (Al-Jamaiki) Al-Britaani.
    3. Abu Abdis Salaam (Al-Juyaanee) Al-Amriki.
    4. Abu Muslim As-Soori.
    5. My precious brother Hilal Al-Hilaal.
    6. And the who loves you, who is writing (this) Abu Ziyaad Ahmad Hamdaan. Thursday 29th of Jumaadah Al-Akhir 1437 Hijri.
