Shaykh Saalih Al-Fawzan has only heard of good regarding Shaykh Yahya Al-Hajoori


May Allah be good to you oh Shaykh, I have heard Shaykh Al-Fawzaan being asked by an individual from America concerning the condition of Shaykh Al-Hajoori.
Whereby he replied that he doesn’t know the Shaykh and that he hasn’t heard but good from him.

What’s the meaning of this?
Bearing in mind that we heard that Shaykh Al-Fawzaan visited Shaykh Al-Hajoori recently in Makkah Al-Mukarramah?


There is no complications in the speech of Shaykh Al-Fawzaan, if it was established that it took place after they met.

He affirmed that our Shaykh is upon goodness, upon what he saw from him outwardly and heard of him, and didn’t take the defamation by the spiteful into consideration, and he negated having deep knowledge of him; because the meetings with our Shaykh weren’t many.
