Muqbil Bin Haadi Al-Waadi'ee - Biography - Return To Yemen

Return To Yemen

In 1979 his stay in Saudi was ended abruptly when he was indicted on suspected involvement in the Grand Mosque Seizure. After spending a few months in prison Grand Mufti ibn Baaz negotiated his release, though he was forced to return to his home country; it was there that he began to spread the Salafi Da'wah in Yemen, with much initial opposition from the Shafi`is, Ismailis, and Zaidis there. While he initially harbored hard feelings toward the Saudi government due to his wrongful imprisonment, toward the end of his life he would ultimately recant his criticism, speaking highly of the country and its authorities.

While there he would go on to establish what would become one of the most important educational institutions of Salafi Islam in the world - the Madrasah Dar al-Hadith al-Khayriyya in Dammaj - teaching tens of thousands of students ranging from the Arab world to Africa to Southeast Asia to even the Western world. It was during this time that Muqbil, along with Ja'far 'Umar Thalib, established the close ties between Yemeni and Indonesian Salafis.

    When we suffer anguish we return to early childhood because that is the period in which we first learnt to suffer the experience of total loss. It was more than that. It was the period in which we suffered more total losses than in all the rest of our life put together.
    John Berger (b. 1926)
