When Talhah Bin Musarrif  (rahimahullaah) knew that the people of Kufah agreed that he was the most knowledgeable (in Kufah), he went to Al-Amash-his close companion-to read to him (i.e. study with him) in order to lower his rank; but Allaah  did not allow except that He raised (Talhah’s) rank. [Siyar A’laam An-Nubulaa 5/191]
