Rabee' Ibn Haadee 'Umayr al-Madkhalee (ربيع بن هادي عمير المدخلي) is a university professor, a well-known Muslim scholar, and a proponent of Salafism.




Early life

Rabee' Ibn Haadee 'Umayr al-Madkhalee was born in 1931 in al-Jaraadiyah, a small village to the west of the town of Saamitah, Saudi Arabia.[1]


As a child, Rabee' studied with a number of teachers including Shaibaan Al-'Areeshee, Al-Qaadee Ahmad bin Muhammad Jaabir Al-Madkhalee, Muhammad bin Husain Makkee, and Muhammad bin Muhammad Jaabir Al-Madkhalee.[1] Afterwards he studied at the larger town of Saamitah with scholars including Naasir Khaloofah At-Tiyaash Mubaarakee, Haafidh bin Ahmad Al-Hakamee and his brother Muhammad bin Ahmad Al-Hakamee, Muhaddith Ahmad bin Yahyaa An-Najmee, Dr. Muhammad Amaan bin 'Alee Al-Jaamee, Muhammad Sagheer Khameesee.[1][2]

In 1961 he entered the Faculty of Sharia in Riyadh for two months and then switched to the Faculty of Sharia at the Islamic University of Madinah, graduating four years later. While there he studied under Abd-al-Aziz ibn Abd-Allah ibn Baaz, Muhammad Naasiruddeen al-Albaanee, 'Abd al-Muhsin al-'Abbaad, Muhammad al-Amin ash-Shanqeetee, Saalih al-'Iraqi, and 'Abd al-Ghaffar Hasan al-Hindi.[2]

Current activity

After completing his Doctorate at Umm al-Qura in 1980, Rabee' returned to the Islamic University of Madinah where he taught at the Faculty of Hadith and later became the head of the Department of Sunnah in the Department of Higher Studies. He is currently a chair holding professor.[2]

Contemporary Evaluation

The late al-Albani said of Rabee':[3]

And in brief, I say that the Carrier of the Flag of (the science of) Al-Jarh wa al-Ta'deel today, in this present time, and rightfully so, is our brother, Dr. Rabee'. And those who refute him, do not do so with knowledge at all. And the knowledge is with him.

Bin Baaz, the former Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia said of him:[4]

Indeed, Shaikh Rabee' is from the scholars of the Sunnah - (and then he mentioned Shaikh Muhammad Amaan Al-Jaamee with him and said) - the two of them are known to me for their knowledge and virtue.

Also, Muhammad ibn al Uthaymeen was quoted as saying in response to a question about the books of Rabee':[5]

It is clear that this question is in no need of my response, for as Imam Ahmad was once asked about Ishaaq bin Raahawaih - may Allaah have mercy on them all - so he said: 'The likes of me is asked about Ishaaq? Rather Ishaaq should be asked about me!' I have already spoken at the start of my talk about what I know of Shaikh Rabee', may Allaah grant him success. And I still insist until now on what I stated then. And his coming here and his talk in which he informed me of what he did - no doubt - are from the things that only increases a person in his love for him and his supplicating for him.
