Shaykh Ubayd al-Jaabiree: And as for [scholars] living today, then I’ll mention two excellent men, although there are many others – and all praise belongs to Allah, but my intend is to give an example, [and they are] Shaykh Saalih bin Fawzaan al-Fawzaan and Shaykh Saalih al-Luhaydaan.
By Allah, we test those who don’t show their love for them. As for one who hates them, then we hate him, and we hold them [al-Fawzaan & al-Luhaydaan] to be firmly grounded in knowledge and upon [correct] understanding – All praise belongs to Allah – and upon beautiful wisdom in their da’wah.
So whoever hates them, we hate him and whoever loves them we draw him close, and if he shows contrary to this we detest and distance him, we abandon him and leave him to his devil, and we say you aren’t from us and we aren’t from you so seek other than us.
