Ibn al-Mubarak: “I borrowed a pen in Syria and I forgot to return it to its owner..”

 

Bismillah Ar Rahmaan Ar Raheem♣

Abu Hasan al-Basri Isa ibn Abdullah said: I heard al-Hasan ibn Arafah saying:

 

[Abdullah] Ibn al-Mubarak said to me:

  • I borrowed a pen in Syria and I forgot to return it to its owner. When I came back to Marw [in Iran], I realised that this pen is still with me. So I went back to Syria and returned it to its owner».

 

(Khatib «Tareekh» 10/167).
