The traces of ink
The traces of ink.. ❤
Abdullah Ibn Mubarak said:
“The traces of ink on the clothes of a scholar of hadeeth is better than the perfume on the clothes of a bride.” [“Tarteeb Al-Madarik”, 1/104].
Ibn Al-Jawzi writes:
“Salih the son of Imam Ahmad said: “A man saw an inkpot in my fathers hand, so he said:
“O Abu Abdullah, you have reached such a high position, you are the Imam of the muslimeen! Until when will you carry that ink pot.” He said : “With the ink-pot to the grave.”
[“Manaqib Al-Imam Ahmad”, 32-33].
