Bismillaah Al-Rahmaan, Al-Raheem (In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful)
Praise be to Allaah Alone and peace and blessings be upon the Seal Prophet.

The collection is compiled and arranged by His Eminence Shaykh Dr. Muhammad ibn Sa`d Al-Shuway`ir may Allaah reward him and our Shaykh well for benefiting us and all Muslims. We are now to begin discussing the Fatwas of Noor `Alaa Al-Darb by our Shaykh and great scholar `Abdul-`Azeez ibn Baaz (may Allaah be Merciful to him), which was compiled and arranged by His Eminence Shaykh Dr. Muhammad ibn Sa`d Al-Shuway`ir may Allaah grant him success!

This in addition to his other inherent talents, such as deep understanding, overwhelming readings, readily recallable memory, accuracy of inference and politely dealing with scholars and even laymen. The Shaykh is also endowed with a good command of language that makes his Fatwas easily understandable by laymen; a high linguistic style that is highly esteemed by notable scholars; such is Allaah’s Bounty and Favor. But Allaah chooses for His Mercy whom He wills. … read more here.
