Taxi Fare and Dates

July 4, 2020 § Leave a comment


“When Shaikh Muqbil went from Riyad to Makkah to seek knowledge he didn’t have any money except the fare for the ride and for a few dates. So he used to work as a ḥāris [security/caretaker] at a building in Makkah until midnight and then seek knowledge the rest of the time, showing great patience. At times he used to forget some of what he had learnt due to how fatigued he would be, as he himself mentioned, may Allaah have mercy on him.”
Nubdhatun Yasīratun min Nafīs Sīrati wa Aqwāli Muḥaddithil-Jazīrati Muqbil bin Hādī al-Wādiʿī, raḥimahullah, p. 20.
