Before we start to read this - first let us pray that Allah swt guides us to the right opinion on this matter. ameen

The site I am talking about is a site we all know very well called www.islam-qa.com

I was reading "About This Site" section on the site and I came across this bit of info:

Responses are composed by Sheikh Muhammed Salih Al-Munajjid, a known Islamic lecturer and author.
It struck me as odd that the person is not identified as a "Mufti" since to legally pass fatwas concerning matters a person must be a Qualified Mufti.

so I followed the "Sheikh Muhammed Salih Al-Munajjid" link and came across this:

He was born on 30/12/1381 AH. He completed his elementary, middle and secondary schooling in Riyaadh, and completed his university studies in al-Dahran, in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

He attended the classes of Shaykh ‘Abd al-‘Azeez ibn ‘Abd-Allaah ibn Baaz, Shaykh Muhammad ibn Saalih al-‘Uthaymeen and Shaykh ‘Abd-Allaah ibn ‘Abd al-Rahmaan al-Jibreen; they were the shaykhs from whom he learned the most. He also studied under Shaykh ‘Abd al-Rahmaan ibn Naasir al-Barraak and Shaykh Muhammad, the son Seedi al-Habeeb al-Shanqeeti. He learned the recitation of the Qur’aan from Shaykh Sa’eed Aal ‘Abd-Allaah.

Among his shaykhs from whom he learned were also Shaykh Saalih ibn Fawzaan Aal Fawzaan, Shaykh ‘Abd-Allaah ibn Muhammad al-Ghunaymaan, Shaykh ‘Abd al-Muhsin al-Zaamil and Shaykh ‘Abd al-Rahmaan ibn Saalih al-Mahmood.

The shaykh from whom he learned the most with regard to fatwas was Shaykh ‘Abd al-‘Azeez ibn ‘Abd-Allaah ibn Baaz – may Allaah have mercy on him; his relationship with him lasted for fifteen years. He is the one who encouraged him to teach, and wrote to the Da’wah and Guidance Centre (Markaz al-Da’wah wa’l-Irshaad) in Dammaam to ask them to co-operate with him in arranging lectures, khutbahs, and classes. Because of Shaykh ‘Abd al-‘Azeez ibn Baaz (may Allaah have mercy on him), he became a khateeb, imaam and lecturer.
Now I dont know about all the sheikhs listed but does all this truly Qualify this person to pass fatwas?

===============================

Please treat this topic seriously - it is not intended to "bad mouth" this site but just raise the question - how reliable is this site we are depending on, nearly a daily basis?

Please ONLY Educated and SERIOUS opinions - no commenting and chit chatting since I wish to learn from bros and sis who may have more knowledge in this regards and not go deeper into confusion insha'Allah.

Jazak Allah Khair

When I read your post. I searched the "Abdullah bin Wahhab" on this site. It seems the ppl of Islam-qa support the Imam and disagree with those who hold the opposite views...

I dont know subha'Allah..

To know that he studied under these sheikhs are enough for me. Read up on them inshaAllah. You dont have to graduate from a university or be "qualified" to give fatwa. Universities dont always teach the right thing. As long as you have the right knowledge then alhamdulillah.

if you look at the answers

A- he gives daleel

B- it is answered by scholars ie, he'll use proof with his answer, quotes from the salaf and also many scholars of today

The responses are handled by Sheikh Muhammad Salih al-Munajjid, using only authentic, scholarly sources based on the Quran and sunnah, and other reliable contemporary scholarly opinions. References are provided where appropriate in the responses.
plus if u look it doesnt say in that article his sheikhs were muftis but like they are/were

and:

Imam Wahab was and is one of the greatest reformers in the history of this Ummah. He waged a war against Shirk and Bid'ah and that is why people hate him. You can read more here Inshallah:
