Abdur-Rahmaan Abdul Khaaliq Visits Shaikh Muhammad al-Banna (rahimahullaah)
In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy
Shaikh Khaalid Abdur Rahmaan al-Misree stated whilst transmitting from Shaikh Muhammad Bin Abdul-Wahhaab Al-Bannaa (rahimahullaah) in connection to his statement about elections: ‘’That which Al-Allaamah Ash-Shaikh Muhammad Bin Abdul-Wahhaab Al-Banna said is that Abdur-Rahmaan has corrupted his religion.
He said, ‘’O My son (i.e. to shaikh khaaliq), he (i.e. Abdur-rahmaan) came to me and he used to be from the most distinguished amongst my students; he came to me at my house in Jeddah and sought permission to (enter), but I did not give him permission to enter. So he said to me: ‘’O Shaikh Muhammad, Muhammad Bin Abdul-Wahhaab Al-Banna, the Shaikh of Ahlus Sunnah in Egypt and the brother of our father Ash-shaikh Hasan Al-Banna (may Allaah preserve him)! He said to me: ‘’O Shaikh Muhammad! The sinners enter your house, so how can you refuse me entry?!’’ So he (shaikh Muhammad al-Banna) said: ‘’Yes, the sinners enter my house and I give them advise, and as for you, indeed I have advised you a lot; a person of innovation does not enter my house, get out! and I kicked him out of my house.
And he (i.e. shaikh Muhammad al-banna) said: O my son (i.e. to shaikh Khaalid Al-Misree): ‘’I feared to die a hypocrite, because I love Abdur-Rahmaan , and that is because I nurtured him.”
So his love for this one (i.e. for abdur rahmaan abdul khaaliq) did not prevent him from speaking a word of truth….
And Allaah knows best
