December 16, 2011 § 2 Comments


From a man who said, “I saw signs of grief on Abu Abdullaah’s face [i.e., Imaam Ahmad ibn Hanbal] because someone had praised him.  And [another time] it was said to him, ‘May Allaah reward you with good on behalf of Islaam.’  So he said, ‘Rather, may Allaah reward Islaam well on behalf of me.  Who am I?  And what am I?!’”

Siyar A’laam an-Nubalaa, v. 11, p. 225.
