Dr Yoosuf ibn ‘Abdillaah az-Zaamil narrates :

‘From the noble manners of the Shaykh (rahima-hullaah) was his love of simplicity. An example of which is once he got into a car with me, the type whose windows are opened manually so he opened it himself so as to respond to the questions of some of the people. Then he said, praising the car and content with it:

“What a good car this is,” as he pointed to its simplicity; as he did not like cars which have electronic buttons to operate the windows.’
