It reached Ibraaheem Al-Harbee (rahimahullaah) that a people who sit with him considered him more virtuous than Imaam Ahmad Bin Hanbal (rahimahullaah); so he said to them: ”You have wronged me by considering me more virtuous than a man whom I am neither similar to nor have I reached (his status) in any affair. I swear by Allaah, you will never hear anything of knowledge (from me), so do not come to me after today. [Siyar A’laam Nubulaa: 13/364]
