He then writes:
"Saykh Al-Albaanee also described Shaykh Rabee as the imaam of jarh and tadeel (the imaam of knowing the narrators and the one who disparages and praises them , Albaanee in fact has written the introduction to his new edition of manhaj al-anbiyah (now available in english)."
So what? What does this have to do with the topic at hand? Rabi asked Sh. Abdur-Rahmaan to write the introduction to the first edition of the book which appeared in the mid-80's.
Also just because al-Albaani views "Shaykh Rabee as the imaam of jarh and tadeel" this does not mean he is infallible. The true imaams of al-jarh wat-ta'deel like Imaams Ahmad, Ibn Ma'een, an-Nisaa'i, Ibn Hibban and others mutually corrected and refuted each others comments on certain narrators of the Prophet's hadeeth (sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam). Where they then followers of their desires? What sheer ignorance.
