"Displaying a Good Example in all of our affairs".


Taken from the book 'Al-Imaam Ibn Baaz- Duroos wa Mawaaqif wa 'Ibar' by Sheikh 'Abdul 'Azeez As-Sadhaan, may Allah preserve him-:

It comes in the biography of 'Abdur Rahman ibn Abaan ibn 'Uthmaan ibn 'Affaan, may Allah have mercy upon him; That he was one who performed alot of worship and was very devout (to Allah). 'Alee ibn 'Abdillah ibn 'Abbaas, may Allah have mercy on him, saw him one day and was deeply amazed by 'Abdur Rahman's devoutness and manners so much that he emulated him in good. [1]

'Abdullah ibn Wahb, may Allah have mercy upon him, said: "That which we conveyed from the manners of (Imaam) Maalik was way more than what we learnt from his knowledge." [2]

Al-Haafith Ibn Kathir, may Allah have mercy upon him, mentions in 'Al-Bidaayah wan- Nihaayah' in the biography of Al-Hasan Al-Basree, Allah have mercy upon him, : "And Yoonus ibn 'Ubayd said: A man would benefit merely by him looking at Al-Hasan even if he didn't hear any of his speech nor see any of his actions."

And (Muhammad) ibn Sireen, Allah have mercy upon him; When he would enter into the marketplace, the people of the marketplace would cease from buying and selling and start remembering Allah the Most High.

A man would gain some benefit by looking at Ibn Qudaamah (author of Al-Mughnee), Allah have mercy upon him, before he would hear (anything from him). [3]

Ja'far As-Saadiq said: "When my heart became hardened I would go to the masjid where Muhammad ibn Waasi' was and look at his face only. Thence, I would strive hard in the obedience of Allah for a whole week from that single look at him."

Ibn Al-Qayyim, may Allah have mercy upon him, said: "Sadness and grief would overcome us, so we would go to Sheikh ul-Islaam, Allah have mercy upon him, and the moment we saw him the sadness would leave from us. So glorified be He (i.e. Allah) who enters His slaves into His Paradise before the meet Him."

Ibn Nadheef said: "Indeed I have witnessed many remarkable men. But I haven't seen anyone the likes of Abi Muhammad ibn Abi Nasr. He was a cooling to the eye." [4]

And all of these narrations are comprised in his, sallahu 'alayhi wasallam, statement: "Verily the close friends of Allah, are those who when they are seen Allah is remebered." [5]

Certainly, his eminence, Sheikh 'Abdul 'Azeez ibn Baaz, may Allah have mercy upon him; The onlooker at him would be touched and influenced by him when he witnessed his manners and his clinging to the Sunnah.

Thus, he was a great example in his prayer, his clothing, his speech, an example in his friendliness and softness. An example in his harshness when it came to the truth. Truly, he was blessed no matter where he was in or where he went. Allah, the Most High, says: "And He has made me blessed wheresoever I may be...." [6]
