The Egyptian ahadits scholar, Shaykh Muhammad ‘Awwamah (r.a.) wrote Adab al-Ikhtilaf, “The Proper Manners of Expressing Difference of Opinion,” criticising al-Albani’s lack of manners in issues of ikhtilaf and his constant takfir, and labelling of others as innovators and heretics.

The Syrian scholar, Shaykh Badr ad-Din Hasan Diyyab (r.a.) wrote Anwar al-Maswabih ‘ala Zhulumat al-Albani fi Swalat at-Tarawih, “Illuminating the Darkness of al-Albani over the Swalat at-Tarawih.”
