The Sahaabee Anas bin Maalik

September 8, 2015

Translated from Shaikh Fawzaan’s Explanation

of Kitaabut Tawheed “al-Mulakh-khas”, p.32

أنسٌ: هو أنسُ بنُ مالكِ بنِ النضرِ

الأنصاريُّ الخزرجيُّ خادمُ رسولِ اللهِ

صلى الله عليه وسلم

خدمَهُ عشرَ سنين

وقال النبيُّ صلى الله عليه وسلم

اللهم أكثرْ مالَهُ وولَدَهُ وأدخِلْهُ الجنةَ

مَاتَ سنة 92 وقِيلَ سنة 93ه

وقد جاوزَ المائةَ

Anas: He is Anas bin Maalik bin an-Nadir

He was from the Ansaar, from the tribe of Khazraj

He served the Messenger of Allaah – sallallaahu alayhe wa sallam

For 10 years

The Prophet – sallallaahu alayhe wa sallam – made dua for him

Saying (translated), “O Allaah, increase his wealth and his children

And enter him into Paradise”

He died in the year 92 after the Hijrah and some say the 93rd year

When he was over 100 years old

King Faisal ibn Abdul Azeez

Taken from the Saudi government website:

http://www.info.gov.sa/portals/kingdom/kingdomkings.html

 

King Faisal was the third King of Saudi Arabia, reigning from 1964 to 1975.

In 1925, Faisal, in command of his father’s arms, won a decisive victory in the Hijaz. Faisal became viceroy of the Hijaz, thus extending King Abdul Aziz’s remit to the west of the peninsula.

Following the formation of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Faisal was appointed Minister of Foreign Affairs in 1932. Faisal served as Prime Minister under King Saud.

In 1964, Faisal was named regent and, a few months later in the same year, became king. Although a great respecter of tradition, King Faisal proved to be a far-sighted innovator [not in the religious sense of the word]. In the course of his reign, Faisal initiated a number of major economic and social development plans. Under Faisal, the industrial development of the Kingdom began in earnest. In foreign policy, King Faisal showed a resolute commitment to the essential interests of the Arab and Islamic world.

King Fahd ibn Abdul Azeez

October 13, 2012

Bio taken from the Saudi government website:

http://www.info.gov.sa/portals/kingdom/kingdomkings.html

 

King Fahd, Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, was the fifth King of Saudi Arabia.

 

King Fahd has brought to his high office a wide range of experience in a number of key posts.

He was appointed the first Saudi Arabian Minister of Education in 1953. He served at that Ministry for five years, laying the foundations for the Kingdom’s ambitious and successful educational program. He became Minister of the Interior in 1962, holding this key position for thirteen years – in the course of which he ensured the Ministry could discharge all its functions as efficiently as any such organization in the world. In 1975, when he became Crown Prince, he had, with consummate grasp of the complexities of the task, undertaken the supervision of both the planning and the implementation of the Kingdom’s second and subsequent five year plans.

It has been, however, in the field of international diplomacy, that Fahd bin Abdul Aziz as king has made his greatest contribution. Working tirelessly, he has brought to bear on the intractable problems of the region his own remarkable subtlety of mind combined with great tenacity of purpose to find, whenever possible, peaceful solutions, based on justice. In the pursuit of this goal, he was always ready to deploy the status and the resources of the Kingdom.

King Fahd died on 1st August, 2005. He was succeeded by Crown Prince Abdullah.
