Adab with Ahadith


Imam Malik (rahimahullah) was once teaching his Muwatta in Madinah as he usually did. All of a sudden, his students noticed that the color of his face had changed, yet he did not move. After the dars was over, he asked one of his students to check what was on his back. When the student lifted his shirt, he saw that a scorpion had bitten him in more than 8 places. Even then, Imam Malik (rahimahullah) remained seated. Shocked, the student asked, “You were going through this and you didn’t say anything?!” He said: “It was a matter of hadith and I wanted to respect the hadith of Rasulullah (Salallahu ‘Alayhi Wasallam), that is why I did not move. This is the adab of the hadith of Rasulullah (Salallahu ‘Alayhi Wasallam). ”
