Discrete and humble

Reference: Siyar A’laam an-Nubalaa – Volume 6, Page 376

al-Falaas said: I heard Ibn Abee ‘Adee say:

Daawood ibn Abee Hind fasted [voluntary fasts] for forty years, and his family were not aware of it. He was very discrete, and would take his [packed] lunch with him, and then give it away [to someone needy] along the way.

He is a graduate of the Islaamic University of Madeenah, having graduated from the Institute of Arabic Language, and later the Faculty of Sharee'ah in 2004. He currently resides in Birmingham, UK.
