“I came to him one day and tried to approach him [concerning the forthcoming issue], asking and trying to get him to please agree for me to try and buy the house which he was living in in Makkah, because it was rented and not his. I tried to convince him and told him that I don’t need anything but for you to agree and the rest is on me.
So he said, ‘Turn your attention away from this issue. Anything that you need from me in order to help or intercede for the Muslims, then do not hesitate [to ask me]—but about anything for me, then no.’”
Imaamul-’Asr, p. 73.

“A few years before the Shaikh’s death, may Allaah have mercy on him, he suffered from pain in his knee, so the wali al-amr [i.e., ruler], may Allaah reward him, wanted to build a house for the Shaikh without stairs so that he wouldn’t have to be burdened with having to climb them. When they consulted the Shaikh as to where it should be built for him, he, after supplicating for good for them, said, ‘There is no time left in my life and this house we are in is sufficient for us.’”
Al-Imaam Ibn Baaz, Duroos wa Mawaaqif wa ’Ibar, p. 65.
