The Living Scholar Abdur-Rahmaan bin Naasir al-Barraak

September 23, 2013



This is a partial translation of the brief biography of Shaikh Abdur-Rahmaan bin Naasir al-Barraak from his website:



His name is: Abdur-Rahman bin Naasir bin Barraak bin Ibraheem al-Barraak



His Kunyah is Abu Abdillah



The Shaikh was born in the city of al-Bukairiyyah in the district of al-Qaseem in the year 1352H. He didn’t know his father because he died when he was young. His mother was responsible for his upbringing and she raised him in the best manner. Allaah decreed that the Shaikh be afflicted with an illness that took away his eyesight when he was nine.



The Shaikh began seeking knowledge at a young age. He memorized the Quran by the time he was almost 12 years old. He began his recitation to some of his relatives, then to the recitor of the city Abdur-Rahmaan bin Saalim al-Kareedees. He sought knowledge from Shaikh Muhammad bin Muqbil al-Muqbil, the judge of al-Bukairiyyah and Shaikh Abdul-‘Azeez bin ‘Abdullah as-Sabeel (Judge of al-Bukairiyyah, al-Khabraa’, and al-Badaa’i’ after his Shaikh bin Muqbil)



Then his was able to travel to Makkah. He stayed there for a number of years. While there he read to Shaikh Abdullah bin Muhammad al-Khaleefee – Imaam of al-Masjid al-Haraam. And he met a virtuous man from the students of al-Allaamah Muhammad bin Ibraheem whose name was Shaikh Saalih bin Husain al-‘Iraaqee. In the year 1369 he accompanied Shaikh al-Iraaqee in travelling to Shaikh Bin Baz when he was judge of the city of ad-Dulam. He stayed there with the Shaikh for close to two years which had a huge affect on his life in seeking knowledge.



Then he joined the Shaikh at the Institute of Knowledge when it opened in Riyadh in 1371H and graduated from it. He joined the College of Sharee’ah in 1378H. While at the Institute and College he studied under many of the Mashaayikh, from the most well-known of them are: al-Allaamah Muhammad al-Ameen ash-Shanqeetee – rahimahullah – who taught Tafseer at the Institute and the Foundations of Fiqh; and al-Allaamah Abdur-Razzaaq al-‘Afeefee – rahimahullah – who taught Tawheed, Grammar, and Foundations of Fiqh; along with many others – (we ask that) Allaah bestow mercy upon all of them. He also attended some of the lessons of al-Allaamah Muhammad bin Ibraheem Aalush-Shaikh.



The greatest of his Mashaayikh, the one having the biggest impact on his soul was al-Allaamah, al-Imaam ‘Abdul-‘Azeez bin Baz – rahimahullah. He benefited from him for over 50 years starting in the year 1369H when Imaam Bin Baz was in the city of ad-Dulam until his death in the year 1420H. After that, (he benefited most from) his Shaikh al-Iraaqee from whom he learned the love of proofs, the abandonment of blind-following, and precision in the sciences of the language: Grammar, Sarf, and Prosody1



The Shaikh memorized the Quran, Buloogh al-Maraam, Kitaabut-Tawheed, Kashfush-Shubuhaat, Thalaathatul-Usool, Shurootus-Salaah, al-Ajroomiyyah, Qatrun-Nidaa, the Alifiyyah of ibn Maalik, and other books.



And there are books (mutoon) the Shaikh gave strong explanations of like at-Tadmuriyyah and Sharh at-Tahaawiyyah. The Shaikh taught them innumerable times and they were read to him (by his students) at the university and the masjid. Likwise (the book) Zaad al-Mustaqna’ and other than it.



The Shaikh worked as a teacher in the Institute of Knowledge in the city of Riyadh for three years from 1379H to 1381H. After that he taught at the College of Sharee’ah in Riyadh. When the College of Usool ad-Deen opened, he transferred there to the Aqeedah division. He worked as a teacher there until he retired in the year 1420H. He oversaw during his time there dozens of masters (MA) and doctorate (PhD) theses (pl. of thesis)



The Shaikh taught at his masjid which he was given leadership over – Masjid al-Khaleefee in the district of al-Faarooq – and most of his lessons took place there. He also taught some of his specific students in his house. And he had lessons in other masjids. In addition to that, he participated in many of the intensive, knowledge-based dawrah’s which take place in the summer, and gave lectures in Riyadh and other areas in the Kingdom. He has more than 20 weekly lessons in various Sharee’ah sciences. The Shaikh is also distinguished by his teaching the sciences of the language, pronunciation, and eloquent speech (balaaghah)



Most of his students are from the teachers at the universities, the known callers, and other than them from those who have benefited from him in general and specifically. Many students of knowledge in foreign countries follow the Shaikh’s lessons over the internet.



The Shaikh has made large efforts which are known in calling to the good and forbidding the evil, advising those in charge and writing them, and warning people from innovtion, deviations, and oppositions (to the Book and the Sunnah)



The Shaikh – hafithahullah – gives great importance to the the affairs of the Muslims in all parts of the world. He feels great sadness and is pained by what is happening to them in many of the countries. He always follows (trustworthy) reports about them, especially in times of crises. He is always making qunoot2 and dua for them in salaah and making dua against their enemies. He has a number of fataawaa specifically concerning this which are widespread.



The Shaikh is distinguished by his expertise in knowledge of the Aqeedah…and he is from the most important of those nowadays who are referred back to in that field.



Many of the Scholars have praised him – among them Shaikh Ibn Baz and Shaikh Uthaymeen. When Shaikh Uthaymeen was asked towards the end of his life whom the people should ask their questions to after him, he praised Shaikh Fawzaan and Shaikh al-Barraak and directed the people to ask them.


The Shaikh has explained numerous books and texts, from them:



Al-Qawaa’id al-Arba’ah


Kitaab Kalimatul-Ikhlass of Ibn Rajab

al-Haa’iyah of Ibn Abee Dawood

Sheikh Muhammad Ibn Ramzan Al-Hajri is my sheikh and the sheikh of Salafiyeen in Al-Jubail which is in the Eastern Province of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

Sheikh Muhammad is well known among the Salafi Scholars. I narrate to you a conversation of one our brothers who telephoned Sheikh Ubaid Al-Jaabiree -may Allaah protect him- seeking a fatwa about an issue. And the Sheikh (Al-Jabiree) was busy, so he asked our brother, ýWhere are you from?” He said, “From Al-Jubail.” So the Shaykh (Al-Jabiree) said, “With you is Muhammad Ibn Ramzan, so call him and ask him.”

And similarly when Sheikh Muhammad Ibn Hadi Al-Madkhalee -may Allaah protect him- visited us in Al-Jubail, I was with the Sheikh in the same car traveling to Dammam in which he praised our Sheikh (Muhammad Ibn Ramzan) and his efforts of daýwah in the Province.

a.       Tafsir Ibn Katheer
b.      Bulugh Al Maram (Fiqh and Hadith)
c.       Al-Shareeýah of Imam Al-Aajooree (Aqeedah)
d.      Umdatul Fiqh (of Imam Al-Maqdasee) (Fiqh)
e.       Zaad Al Maýad (Fiqh and Seerah)

And our Shaykh also has weekly sessions in cities of Dammam, Khafji and Naiýriyah. Our Shaykh also participates in annual lectures and programs inside the Kingdom and abroad.

This is what is possible for me to put down urgently, and Allah is the One to give Tawfeeq.

*Abu Afnaan Muhammad Siddiq (one of the American brothers in Jubail who translates for Shaikh Muhammad) adds..

The Sheikh holds a Masterýs Degree in Islamic Jurisprudence from Imam Ibn Saud University and studied under the likes of Sheikh Ibn Baz (12 years), Sheikh Ibn Al ýUthaymeen, Sheikh Muhammad Aman Al Jaami, Sheikh Rabeýe Al Madkhali, Sheikh Saalih Al Atram, Hamaad Al Ansari and many others. I once asked about his Shuyukh and he responded that they were more than two hundred.

In addition to the previous mentioned classes, the Sheikh has a class on Mondays, after ‘Isha (translated into English). He’s completed 40 An Nawawiya, Kitab Al Tawheed, Sharh As Sunna, and Fadl Islam. We will start Muqaddimah Ibn Abi Zaid (Aqeedah) after the winter break. Also, on Sat. the Sheikh has class in Dammam after ‘Isha. He teaches from M’aarij Al Qubool (Hafidh al Hakamy) and Tafseer (Ibn Katheer of which heýs almost finished). He also has monthly duroos in Qaysooma and Al Ahsaa. Also, within the past year the Sheikh has traveled to Maghrib, Turkey, Europe, India, Bangladesh, and other places giving da’wa. On some of these trips, heýs traveled with the likes of Sheikh Saleh As Suhaymi and Sheikh Wasee Allah Al ‘Abbas. I (Abu Afnaan) have personally seen a letter sent by Sheikh Wasee Allah Al ‘Abaas in which he gives Sheikh Muhammad ‘Ijaaza in Sahih Al Bukhari which Sheikh (Muhammad) read sections from it to Sheikh (Wasee Allah), part of which was on a plane, exemplifying the Sheik’s dedication to seeking and spreading ‘ilm. Currently (12/07/2010), the Sheik is in Morocco with Sheikh Salih as-Suhaimi participating in the Imam Malik Dawra.

In addition to the Shuyukh mentioned above, many other shuyukh have visited Shiekh Muhammad, like Sheikh Al Albani, Sheikh Muhammad Aman Al Jaami, and a host of others. Due to the Sheikhýs humility it is difficult to get him to talk about himself as heýs always advising his students to ýtake knowledge from the kibaarý.

Jazak Allah khairan.
