Would not allow time to pass without benefit

Reference: Siyar A’laam an-Nubalaa – Volume 17, Page 646

al-Qaasim ibn ‘Asaakir reported on the authority of Sulaym ibn Ayyoob:

About him, I was told he would take account of himself [to the level of every] breath; he would not let time pass without [utilising it for] benefit. He would be [busy] either writing, teaching, or reading. I was told he would even be moving his lips when sharpening his pen[cil].

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.
