The most noble Taabi’ee, Masrooq ibn al-Ajda’ al-Waadi’i, may Allaah have mercy on him, would stay at home during the plague and say, “Days of keeping oneself busy—so I love to devote myself to worship,” and then he would retreat and betake himself to it. His wife said, “Many a time I would sit behind him, crying, because of what I would see him do to himself—he would pray until his feet would swell.”

At-Tabaqaat of Ibn Sa’d, vol. 6, p. 81.
