What prevented you from travelling to az-Zuhree?

Reference: Siyar A’laam an-Nubalaa – Volume 7, Page 246

‘Abdur-Razzaaq said:

I have not seen anyone more stronger in protecting that which he had [of knowledge] than ath-Thowree. It was said to him:

What prevented you from travelling to az-Zuhree [to seek knowledge]?

He said: I did not have any (enough) dirhams (money).
