What happened to this Shaikh?!
Abu Moosaa Muhammad Ibnul Muthannaa said:
We used to read to a blind Shaikh, so when the (innovated) speech about the Qur’aan being created occurred in Baghdad the Shaikh said: ”If the Qur’aan is not created, then may the Qur’aan be wiped off my heart (i.e. from my memory).” He (Abu Moosaa) said: When we heard this speech of his, we abandoned him and turned away from him. After some time period we met him and said to him: ”O such and such, what did the Qur’aan do?” He said: ”Nothing of it remains in my chest (i.e. in my memory).” We said: ”Not even قُلْ هُوَ اللَّهُ أَحَدٌ?” He said: ”Not even قُلْ هُوَ اللَّهُ أَحَدٌ except when I hear it being recited by someone else.”
