Shaykh Fawaaz Al-Madkhalee Transmits Tazkiyah of Shaykh Zayd Al-Madkhalee for Shaykh Muhammad ‘Akkoor and Others
We have seen some of the Mashaayikh participating with you in the Dawrah Al-Qar’aawiyah ; they have activity within Jeezaan but they are not known to give lessons and lectures on the internet. They are Shaykh Muhammad ibn Muhammad ‘Akkoor, Shaykh Yahyaa ibn ‘Abduh At-Taalibee, and Shaykh ‘Uthmaan Al-Hamalee. Are they known and do they have Tazkiyah from Shaykh Zayd, may Allaah preserve him?
Yes, these men, the first of them, is Shaykh Muhammad ibn Muhammad ‘Akkoor; this man is more than 70 years old. He is a virtuous Shaykh; an elder. He is modest and one who has refined manners. He is a scholar. He is from the distinguished students of Shaykh Zayd since a long time ago. I have not known Shaykh Zayd except that he was sitting with him. He has great activities within our province in calling to Allaah, the Mighty and Majestic; yet he is very humble. He has much commendation from Shaykh Zayd.
Shaykh Yahyaa ibn ‘Abduh At-Taalibee is the son of Shaykh Zayd’s sister. Shaykh Zayd is his maternal uncle. He is in his sixties. Meaning, his age is nearly 60 years old. Also, he is from the students of knowledge and he has some very good work (in Da’wah).
Also, Shaykh ‘Uthmaan Hamalee as well; he is around 50 or 60 years old. He is from the students of knowledge; from those who has commendation from Shaykh Zayd.
All of these, for Allaah is the praise, Shaykh Zayd has given them Tazkiyah and they are known to the point that speech is not needed (about them). However, the natural manner here within our locale is that they do not like fame and they do not search for it. They are shy. They are naturally modest for the most part. Due to that, you do not see them putting themselves forward for classes or perusing the internet and the web. They have very great activity within the villages; and they have efforts which are very much appreciated. So may Allaah reward them with good.
These (three) are well-known and have Tazkiyah from Shaykh Zayd and Shaykh Ahmad An-Najmee, may Allaah have mercy upon him.
