When Ibraheem Baashaa killed Shaykh Sulayman Ibn Abdillaah Ibn Muhammad Ibn Abdil-Wahhaab (may Allah have mercy upon them all) he wanted to enrage his father Shaykh Abdullah Ibn Muhammad Ibn Abdil-Wahhaab (may Allah have mercy upon them both) he said to him: "We killed your son Sulaymaan". Shaykh Abdullah responded with all certainty, sincerity and faith: "Even if you didn't kill him he would have died anyway."

Shaykh Ibn Bassaam (may Allah have mercy upon him) commented: "This true statement from this brave man has reached that which the steel arrows haven't reached. Ibraheem Baashaa kept repeating this statement with his tongue and contemplating it with his intellect." Shaykh al-Bassaam went on to say: "I read in some of the Egyptian history (books) that when Ibraheem Baashaa returned to Cairo after the war of Ad-Dar'eeyah, the scholars and Shuyookh of Azhar came greeting him but he didn't turn towards them nor pay them any mind. When he was asked about that he said: "The true Ulamaa are the ones that are in the desert of Najd." He said this due to what he seen from their faith, truthfulness and their following the example of the state of the first pious predecessors (of the Muslims).
