Sharing a Faa’idah: [Among The Beautiful Qualities of Shaikhul Islaam Muhammad Ibn Abdul Wahhaab] – By Shaikh Ubaid
In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy
Shaikh Ubaid [may Allaah preserve him] said:
And among the most important qualities of the Shaikh [i.e. Shaikhul Islaam Muhammad Ibn Abdul Wahhaab (rahimahullaah)] is that he gave importance to the citizens [of the nation] and acknowledged everyone’s status, and he did not neglect his dependents [i.e. those under his care].

He gave [close] attention to his children despite being preoccupied with Dawah, writing and teaching. This concern for his children was so much that after him, his children were from the senior scholars, rather among them were some who used to teach the Uloom [i.e. the different subject areas or sciences of the religion] during his lifetime. How can this not be the case, for back in the old days it used to be said: ‘’This cub is from that lion [i.e. from the offspring of that lion]
