Regarding the above article, my respected brother Abu Khuzaymah Imran – may Allah reward him for his diligence – questioned the authenticity of its ascription to Shaykh Albaani (rahimahullah) due to the absence of the actual audio file.

I asked a number of Mashaykh who were close to Shaykh Albaanee, and Shaykh ‘Aasim Al-Quryooti replied:

“Yes, it is affirmed from him [that they are the words of Shaykh Albaani].

I bear witness that I heard this from him in a recording however I do not recall right now the name or the number of the recording.

However the Shaykh has many statements about this subject, so they should be collected and compiled so we can conclusively know his words on this important issue.”

A day later, the Shaykh then sent an audio recording saying:

The source is: Silsilah Al-Hudaa wa An-Noor, cassette number: 218.

He said: “This is a message – may Allah preserve you – from the one who heard the statement from Shaykh Albaani. And he is our brother, Shaykh Abu Khalid Waleed [unclear]. But the statement is present in the above source in number 218 of the series – may Allah preserve you.”

والله أعلم وصلى الله على نبينا وسلم.
