Abulhassan, the Likely Successor to Moqbil Al-Wadaee [Archives:2001/28/Local News]

July 9 2001

Moqbil Al-Wadaee, who leads the Salafi movement in Yemen was taken serious ill to Saudi Arabia for treatment.
Consequent upon deterioration of his fragile state of health he intended to go to the USA for more specialized treatment. But he was denied visa to USA and proceeded instead to Germany.
In view of his absence and failing health, there are a number of illustrious and competent scholars to take over.
One of the leading figures is Abulhassan Al-Masri, an Egyptian who supervises a center of the movement in Al Fagla, Marib governorate. The center earlier managed by Moqbil is currently looked after by Yayha Al-Hajary.
