The Piety of Imām Ibn ʿAwn

The shaikh, Dr. ʿAbdullāh Al-Bukhārī, may Allāh protect him, said:

It’s mentioned in the biography of the Tābiʿī,¹ Imām ʿAbd Allāh ibn ʿAwn Al-Baṣrī, the statement of Bakkār ibn Muḥammad:

I never saw Ibn ʿAwn insult or put down anyone [or anything] ever, [not] a male slave, nor a female [one], nor a sheep, nor a chicken—not anything. And I have not seen anyone with greater control over his tongue than he.

Al-Ṭabaqāt by Ibn Saʿd, vol. 7, p. 262.

¹One who met one of the Companions of the Prophet ﷺ as a believer and died upon belief (tr.)
