Bustaam ibn Hurayth said:

Ayyoob as-Sikhtiyaanee was [humble and] tender hearted, and when he would become tearful in front of his companions, he would pinch his nose to give [them] the impression he had a cold, and if he feared he would be overcome by tears, he would get up [and leave the gathering].
