He was asked about Shaykh Rabee' on the cassette "A Clarification of some of the Errors of 'Adnaan 'Aroor, and it was said to him:
"There is a lot of talk going on about Shaykh Rabee' - is he considered one of the scholars of the Muslims?"
So he responded:
"Shaykh Rabee', all praise be to Allaah, is well-known with the elite personalities and the scholars. And furthermore, our shaikh (teacher), Shaykh 'Abdul-'Azeez Bin Baaz has praised and approved of him. And I would not think that you would present this question to me."
