I yearn to remain standing until my body aches

Reference: Siyar A’laam an-Nubalaa – Volume 4, Page 602

‘Abdul-Kareem said:

Talq ibn Habeeb would not go into rukoo’ once he started Soorah al-Baqarah (page 2) until he reached (Soorah) al-‘Ankaboot (page 396), and he would say:

‘I yearn to remain standing [in prayer] until my body aches.’

Translator’s note: Soorah page numbers correspond to the Madeenah Mushaf.

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.
