"...I have come to this land to seek knowledge"
*Please appropriately reference this quote to:, thankyou!*
Concerning the Muhaddith, the Shaykh - Hammaad ibn Muhammad al-Ansaaree (rahima-hullaah), it has been narrated by his son 'Abdul-Awwal:

"My father said:

"I entered al-Masjid an-Nabawee and saw a man speaking to a group of people in a foreign language. So one of them approached me and said to me:

"Do you know who we are?"

I said:

"I don't know".

So he said:

"We are (from) the Jamaa'ah at-Tableegh, and we have six principles" - so I wrote them down.

And he said:

'"I would like you to come out (khurooj) with us".

So I said to him:

"What will I do?"

And he said:

"Do what we do"

So I said to him:

"I have not come (here) to leave, (rather), I have come to this land to seek knowledge".

So when I went to Makkah I found out alot about them, and that being by way of the (Madrasah) as-Sowlatiyyah, since it belongs to them. And their going out (khurooj) - there is no good in any of it - since they do not teach the people anything."
