May Allaah make me like Shaykhana Abu ‘Abdur-Rahmaan and better, aameen!
All praise is due to Allaah and may the Salaat and Salaam be upon the Messenger of Allaah, his family, companions and all those who follow him.
Abu ‘Abdur Rahmaan, Muhammad ‘Ajaal, is a caller to Allah in the city of Ottawa, Canada. Unknown to many, well known to the scholars and his local community in Ottawa, he has been giving Da’wah for as far back as I have known. He is a graduate from the faculty of Hadeeth, and has exerted great efforts in the service of calling to the Book of Allaah and the Sunnah of His Messenger, upon the understanding of the righteous predecessors.
He is a man of knowledge, wisdom, understanding and humility. His humility and sincerity prevent him from propagating the numerous recommendations that he has received from the scholars, which also prevent him from having his extremely beneficial lectures, classes and sermons from being recorded and propagated over the internet, which is why he is widely unknown to the masses. But it is as Shaykh Saaleh as Suhaymee mentions: ‘One should be keen upon sitting and benefiting from the likes of him by the permission of Allaah.’ As can be seen in Shaykh Saaleh’s recommendation below.
He refuses to advertise his recommendations for the lectures and seminars he has in Ottawa, I myself was unaware of his numerous recommendations until recently. They fell into my hands due to some circumstances, and he has not requested that I translate them, I do this of my own accord, so that those who wish to benefit from him may do so. It is truly refreshing to see someone like him in the west.
I consulted ash Shaykh al ‘Allaamah al Muhaddith, Shaykh Muhammad ibn ‘Ali ibn Adam of Makkah, the author of the first explanation of Sunan an Nasaa-ee and who is now working on the explanation of Saheeh Muslim. He advised me to translate his recommendations if he has been steadfast upon the methodology of the Salaf; the methodology he was on at the time the recommendations were written.
