The Last Will & Testament of Muqbil bin Hadi al-Wadi’i
August 10, 2012 7 Comments
There’s been quite a few times where Shaikh Muqbil bin Hâdî’s last will and testament has been mentioned here on my blog (usually in the comments sections to posts), especially with respect to Shaikh Abul-Hasan al-Ma’ribî. Because of this I thought it might be a good idea to post it here for whoever wants to read it and see for themselves, since the brothers at Salafi Publications (as well others who are upon their exaggerationist mentality) love to make it seem like Shaikh Muqbil was wary of some sort of potential evil Shaikh Abul-Hasan was bound to inflict upon the world. It never made any sense to me (and to many others) how someone who Shaikh Muqbil supposedly believed posed such a great danger to Islam and Salafism would be someone that he advised others to refer matters to in his last will and testament.
In any case, I had a really hard time finding that old translation online, so I decided to retranslate it myself. You guys can read it here, if you’re interested: The Last Will & Testament of Muqbil bin Hâdî al-Wâdi’î (PDF).
In the middle of translating the will, I was finally able to find it posted on some random blog post regarding the last will and testament (al-wasiyyah) itself, quoted as an example of what one looks like (Shaikh al-Albânî’s last will and testament was another example shown in the post). The post’s author referenced Shaikh Muqbil’s Salafi Publications’s website, but searching their site, I was unable to find it at all. For whoever wants to read their translation of the will (which differs from mine in some parts), you can do so by visiting this blog. You’ll find Shaikh Muqbil’s will about two thirds down the page, followed by Shaikh al-Albânî’s last will and testament.
