Al-Bazzaar said about Ibn Taymiyyah, “And he wouldn’t become fed up of anyone asking him for a verdict [fatwa] or questions, rather he would greet them with a happy face, mild-mannered, and stay with them until the questioner would be the one to part first, whether young or old, man or woman, free person or slave, scholar or commoner, city-dweller or bedouin—he wouldn’t refuse anyone or embarrass them or drive them away by saying anything that would make them feel uneasy, but would instead answer them and make them understand and show them what was correct from what was not, all with gentleness and pleasantly.”

Al-Aʿlām al-ʿAliyyah fī Manāqibi Shaikhil-Islām Ibn Taymiyyah, pp. 48-49.
