This it the story about how Ibn Hazm

Never think it is to late.. ❤

This it the story about how Ibn Hazm (a scholar from the past) started his journey for knowledge.

Imaam Aboo Muhammad ‘Abdullah ibn Muhammad reported that Ibn Hazm told him of the reason why he started seeking knowledge (fiqh).

He said:

I attended a Janazah (funeral) prayer and entered the masjid and sat down without praying two rak’aat, a man told me stand up and pray tahyi-atul masjid!

This was at the age of 26, so I stood up and prayed. Then when we returned from the Janazah I stood up (once more) to pray two rak’aat and I was told sit down!

This is not the time to pray! – it was after ‘Asr.

So I left in a sad state, and said to my teacher who had raised me, show me the house of the Faqeeh (scholar) Aboo ‘Abdillah ibn Dahoon.

So I went to him and told him of what had happened to me, so he guided me to al-Muwatta of Imaam Maalik so I started studying it with him.

[Translated from Siyaar ‘alaam an-Nubalaa, The story of Ibn Hazm al-Andalusi]
