Our Salaf: I don’t want to see the humilaition on your face!
Muttarrif Bin Abdillaah (rahimahullaah) said to one of his brothers:
”O Father of such and such! If you have a need, then do not speak to me; rather write it down on a piece of paper because I fear seeing the humiliation of asking on your face.” [Siyar A’laam Nubulaa: 4/194]
He (rahimahullaah) also said: To be thankful to Allaah whilst I am in a state of welbeing is more beloved to me than excercising patience when put to trial” [Siyar A’laam Nubulaa: 4/195]
