Sharing a Faa’idah: [Shaikhul Islaam Muhammad Ibn Abdul Wahhaab Was An Imaam in The Sciences of The Religion]- By Shaikh Ubaid
In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy
Shaikh Ubaid [may Allaah preserve him] said:
He [i.e. Shaikhul Islaam Muhammad Ibn Abdul Wahhaab (rahimahullaah0] was an Imaam in Tafseer and this is clearly manifested in his derivation of evidences from the Aayaat [of the Qur’aan]. He was a scholar of Hadeeth, so you find how he [utilised them] as evidence in their [appropriate] places. He was a scholar of Fiqh without blindly following [others] and it is enough that he was an Imaam in the fundamental [principles] of the religion and knowledge of the [affairs] of creed – Thaabit Fee Aqeedatihi As-Sunniyyah – Firm upon his Sunni creed [i.e. the correct Sunni Islamic Creed of the Salafus Saalih] and Shubuhaat [i.e. doubts that are made to resemble the truth, but are falsehood in reality] did not shake him, rather he used to refute them.
