Did Al-Albani Come Up with Opinions of His Own?

Shaykh

Shaykh Muhammad Bazmoul said:

I do not know of an issue of which Shaykh Albaani chose an opinion where no one from the people of knowledge preceded him.

He always takes great concern to mention his Salaf in that which he chooses to act upon from the opinions that appear to him to be in agreement with the texts [the Book and the Sunnah].
