The happiest people in the hereafter are the people of Hadeeth, their Imaam (leader) is Prophet Mohammed (Peace and Blessings of Allah upon him).  Allaah almighty has said (translation of the interpretation): "One day we shall call together all human beings with their (respective) Imaams (leaders)."

People of Hadith, they are the people of the Messenger,   and even if they don't accompany him alive, they accompany his words and inspirations.

Every Deen (Religion) has its warriors and the warriors of this Deen are the people of Al-Asaaneed (authority and authentication of source).

Praise be to Allaah, the Ever-Living, Who does not die, and Peace and Blessings upon our Prophet Mohammed and upon all his family and companions,

We have barely come out of the painful grieve of losing the Scholar and Imam Abdulaziz bin Abdullah bin Baaz to be distressed by the news of the death of the late narrator of Hadeeth and the mujaddid (renewer) of the science and scholarship of the prophet's Hadeeth the scholar Sheikh Mohammed Naser uDeen Al-Albani who has met his lord today, Saturday 22 Jamadi Akhirah 1420 hijri (10/2/1999) in the afternoon.  His burrial was completed after performing Salat ul Janazah on him (prayer for the dead) tonight around 10:00pm (in Mekkah's time zone) which was in accordance to his will in which he indicated a quick barrial as has been narrated in the example of the Prophet (Peace and Blessings of Allah upon Him).  The Sheikh (may the mercy of Allaah be upon him) had been stricken during the last part of his life by cirrhosis of the liver and stoppage of white blood cell production, in addition, to his senility.  He used to experience unconsciousness most of the time during his last days and had entered into a coma the last night before his death until he met his fate and passed away in the city of Amman Jordan and was burried there tonight.

Oh Allaah, grant forgiveness to Abi Abdul Rahman and raise his status among the guided and above many of Your creation on the Day of Judgement. Forgive us and him, O Lord of the Worlds.  Make his grave wide and fill it with light, for You are the All-Hearing Who answers prayers and You are Ever Near.
