The value of time, engaged in the remembrance of Allaah

Reference: Siyar A’laam an-Nubalaa – Volume 18, Page 222

Abul-Qaasim ‘Abdullaah ibn ‘Alee said:

The lips of Abul-Hasan ad-Daawoodee would not cease from [engaging in] the remembrance of Allaah.

It was narrated that when the barber wanted to trim his moustache, he said to him:

“Stop moving your lips.”

And he responded:

“Tell time [to pause], so I can then stop [moving my lips].”
