‘Abdullaah ibn Haaroon al-Ma.moon (died 218A.H.) narrated:

al-Ameen and al-Ma.moon travelled to ‘Abdullaah ibn Idrees who narrated a hundred hadeeth to them. al-Ma.moon then said:

“O Uncle, if you permit me, I shall repeat them [all] from memory.”

So he permitted him, and he repeated them [all] from his memory as he had heard them, and Ibn Idrees was surprised at his memorisation.

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.
