In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

Shaykh Zayd al-Madkhalī,(1) may Allāh aid him, said: "The refutations that Shaykh Rabīʿ(2) has taken on the task of carrying out are striving and fighting to make the truth uppermost. They are also an advice and concern for the Muslims, especially beginning students of knowledge and those similar to them who are not meticulous in the field of creed (al-ʿaqīdah), methodology (al-manhaj) and refutations. His efforts deter the beginning students and those similar to them from falling into perils and cautionary matters.(3)
(1) Dr. Rabīʿ ibn Hadī al-Madkhalī, may Allāh preserve him, said about Shaykh Zayd: “…[He is] distinguished, intelligent and righteous.” [See al-Afnaan al-Nadiyyah, 1/20.]
(2) Shaykh ʿAbd al-ʿAzīz ibn Bāz [d. 1420 AH], may Allāh have mercy on him, said: "Shaykh Rabīʿ is well known to me to have knowledge, virtue and the correct creed." [See "The Correct Stance against The People of Innovations" by Shaykh Rabīʿ with Endnotes by Abū Hammam al-Baydhaanee, pg. 34]
