My grandfather, ‘Abdullaah ibn Muhayreez, would complete [reading the] Qur.aan every Jumu’ah; and [every night] we would prepare his bedding, and perhaps he did not sleep upon it.
I reviewed the Qur.aan with Ibn ‘Abbaas three times. I would stop him at every aayah, and ask him about what it was revealed, and how it was [revealed].
How can I isolate myself when I am with the Prophet (sal-Allaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) and his Companions?!
‘Abdullaah ibn al-Mubaarak was gratefully rich, [and] his wealth amounted to about 400,000 [deenars].
The fuqahaa of Madeenah [were]: Sa’eed ibn al-Musayyib, ‘Abdul-Malik [ibn Marwaan], ‘Urwah [ibn Udhaynah], and Qubaysah ibn Dhu’ayb.
