The Shaykh graduated from the Faculty of Hadeeth at the IslaamicUniversity of Madeenah and studied with many mashaayikh including Shaykh Muhammad Ibn Saalih al-‘Uthaymeen (rahimahullah) and Shaykh Rabee’ Ibn Haadee al-Madkhalee (hafidhahullah), among others.
On the Authority of ‘Aa’ishah (May Allah be pleased with her) who said:
“When the last ten nights would enter, Allah’s Messenger (sallAllahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) would stay up throughout the night, awaken his family, become intense (in worship) and tighten his mi’zar (lower garment).” [Agreed upon]
The Salaf held this great month and more so the last ten nights in high regard and strove to increase in and exert themselves in ‘ibaadah, seeking and hoping for the reward from their Lord. Thus, it is encouraged that we all endeavour to imitate our Messenger (sallAllahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) and our Pious Predecessors and strive not only in this month but accustom our souls to the obedience of Allah during the remaining months.
Our Shaykh Usamah al-‘Utaybi (hafidhahullah) will enlighten us regarding the ‘ibaadah of the Salaf in the last ten nights of Ramadhaan and by the Permission of Allah we will all be encouraged to exert ourselves and increase in our acts of worship in the remaining days and nights of this blessed month.
We ask Allah, Al-Kareem to make it easy for us to worship Him and that He grants us success in the month ofRamadhaan and steadfastness until we meet Him, Subhaanahu wa Ta’aala.
