Ibn Baaz the Generous Teenager

“Shaikh Muhammad al-Musa said to me, ‘Shaikh Ibn Baaz had a relative whose name was Sa’d ibn ’Abdul-Muhsin and he was a hundred years old, His Eminence [Shaikh Ibn Baaz] used to say that this man was ten years older than him.

This [old] man told me about Shaikh [Ibn Baaz’s] generosity and that it was something implanted in his nature from when he was young, he said, ‘When Ibn Baaz was a teenager he would attend the lessons of His Eminence, the Shaikh, the ’Allaamah Muhammad Ibn Ibrahim, may Allaah have mercy on him. After the lesson would be over and he would be on his way home, if he would find someone on his way, a student of knowledge, or a stranger/foreigner [who was new to the area], or a guest, or a neighbour, then he would insist on him coming in and ask him to eat despite being poor and despite the sparsity of food [that he had].’

And he continued with his amazing generosity, may Allaah have mercy on him, for all his life and would in fact feel pain if he did not find guests to share his food with him.”

Imaamul-’Asr, p. 100.
