Who is Abu ‘Abdur Rahman Muhammad ‘Ajaal?


Who is Abu ‘Abdur Rahman Muhammad ‘Ajaal?

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.

The Shaykh, Muhammad ‘Ajaal, has been steadfast upon calling to the methodology of the Salaf for over fifteen years, in Ottawa and elsewhere. The Salafi community of Ottawa, his students and companions, and others would bear witness to this; that he has been calling to the methodology of the Salaf, establishing classes and seminars, teaching and upbringing the community, and patiently standing against those who oppose the truth, repelling the harm they direct towards him with goodness and patience.

Likewise I believe him to be so, and Allah is the One Who holds him to account, and I do not praise anyone over Allaah.

[Note of benefit: I do not praise anyone over Allaah means I do not guarantee this will be the same in the future and I know not of what is in his heart – as mentioned by al Ubbee in ad Deebaaj ‘ala Muslim and others.]

The following recommendations speak for themselves; they are but a selected few of what I have seen and have, but these should suffice:

Firstly, ash Shaykh, al ‘Allaamah, al Muhaddith, ‘Abdul Muhsin al ‘Abbaad of Maddeenah.

In the name of Allaah, the most Merciful, the most Beneficent.

All praise is due to Allaah and may the Salaat and Salaam be upon the Messenger of Allaah.

To proceed:

Indeed the brother, Muhammad ‘Ali ‘Ajaal al Kanadee, who graduated from the faculty of Hadeeth in the Islaamic Unversity of al Madeenah 1413/1414,is one of the students who attended my classes in the Prophetic Masjid for about two years. What I know and understand about it him during this period is that he is of sound ‘Aqeedah and good direction and deserves to enter Higher Studies in the University of his choice.

And Allaah is the granter of success.

Secondly, ash Shaykh al ‘Allaamah, Rabee’ ibn Haadee al Madkhalee.

In the name of Allaah, the most Merciful, the most Beneficent.

To Whom it May Concern:

All praise is due to Allaah and may the Salaat and Salaam be upon the Messenger of Allaah, his friends, companions and all those who follow him.

To proceed:

Indeed the brother, Muhammad ‘Ali ‘Ajaal al Kanadee is from amongst the best I have known who have graduated from the faculty of Hadeeth at the Islaamic University of Madeenah, in his righteousness, manners and ‘Aqeedah.

I believe him to be so, and Allah is the One Who holds him to account, and I do not praise anyone over Allaah.

He has requested a recommendation from me and I have given it to him because he deserves it.

May Allaah grant all success to what He loves and is pleased with.

Thirdly, ash Shaykh al ‘Allaamah Saaleh ibn Sa’d as Suhaymee.

All praise is due to Allaah and may the Salaat and Salaam be upon the Messenger of Allaah.

To proceed:

Indeed the brother, the Shaykh, Muhammad ‘Alee ‘Ajaal, who graduated from the faculty of Hadeeth in the Islaamic University of Madeenah, is one of the students of knowledge who are known to me for steadfastness, good mannerisms, sound methodology and keen upon seeking knowledge. He has exerted good efforts in calling to Allaah the Elevated, upon the methodology of the Salaf as Saaleh.

One should be keen upon sitting and benefiting from the likes of him by the permission of Allah.

Likewise I believe him to be so, and Allah is the One Who holds him to account, and I do not praise anyone over Allaah.

May Allaah grant all success to what He loves and is pleased with, and may the Salaat and Salaam be upon the Messenger of Allaah, his family and companions.
