Shaikh ‘Abdul-Muhsin al-‘Abbad Sick

I was browsing on Facebook yesterday and noticed that my good friend, Ali Sabir, had posted a link to a video on the FIKS (Fundamentals of Islam & Seminary) website. The video had a message and request from one of the brothers from the organization, Abu Taubah, for visitors to supplicate to Allah for Shaikh ‘Abdul-Muhsin bin Hamad al-‘Abbad; may Allah preserve, protect him, and give him good health.

According to their report, the shaikh has been ill for the last little while. So ill, apparently, that he hasn’t held any classes for the past week or so. Hearing this news saddened me quite a bit as having translated several things by the shaikh (a couple small treatises, a few excerpts from a couple of his other books, and several statements he’s made pertaining to different issues), he’s become one of my favourites. Please supplicate to Allah to give the shaikh good health and to allow him to recover quickly from his illness. He’s one of the few remaining massive mountains of Islamic knowledge we have among our scholars today. Losing him will be a tremendous loss to the Muslim community.

Here’s the link to the video for those who want to watch it.


About Rasheed Gonzales

    As salaamu alaikum,

    May Allaah preserve the health of the Shaykh, Ameen.

    Here is another nice little bomb from the Shaykh recently:

  2. Abul Qayyim Faheem ibn Talut says:

    As salaamu alaikum,

    Any updated status on the Shaykh?

  3. Wa ‘alaikum as-salam wa rahmatullah.

    I haven’t heard anything. I’ll ask around, insha’allah and post up if I find anything out.

  4. Aboo Yoosuf says:

    I asked to one of the students in Madeenah and he said the Shaykh is taking classes, so probably the condition has improved.

    Anyway, Shaykh Muhammad ibn ‘Abdil Wahhaab al-Bannaa passed away today in Jeddah. He was from the most eldest and senior Scholars, may Allaah have mercy on him.

  5. Abu Surayyah says:

    As Salaamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullah, Just wanting to know the condition of Shaykh Abdul Muhsin Al Abbad may Allaah preserve him. Ameen.

  6. Wa ‘alaikum as-salam wa rahmatullah, Abu Surayyah.

    It’s been quite some time since I originally read that the shaikh was sick. On the Fiks site, there’s a comment to the original announcement that the shaikh was said to be scheduled to start giving talks again about a week from the time the person made the comment. I haven’t heard anything about the shaikh since then, so I’m assuming that his health is good, insha’allah, and that he’s back to his regular routines; and Allah is more knowledgeable.

    I have heard recently though that Shaikh Abu Ishaq al-Huwaini, who has been quite sick for a long time now, may be close to his time. He recently gave a talk which had the audience in tears. It can be watched here. Please supplicate for the shaikh’s good health.

  7. Yusuf says:

    I thin Shaykh ‘Abdul-Muhsin al-‘Abbaad is doing better now, may Allah protect him.

    He just released a writing today – أسوء هذيان ظهر حتى الآن في فتنة اختلاط الجنسين في بلاد الحرمين (read) concerning the recent fitnah of intermingling between men and women in Saudi Arabia being promoted by liberals and hypocrites. This is one writing in a seres of writings he’s already released about this issue.
