Zuhd Of Ibn Uthaymeen (R)

“Once, King Khalid visited Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymīn رحمه الله at his house, as was the habit of the rulers in their high regard and respect for the scholars. And when the King saw the humble home of the Shaykh he offered to have a new house built for him, (at which) the Shaykh thanked him saying:

“I am building a house in
(the district of) As-Sālihiyyah, however, the masjid and the charitable trust are in need of (financial) assistance”.

So, after the King left, some of those sitting in the gathering said:

“O Shaykh, we did not know that you were building a home in as-Sālihiyyah”, (to which) the Shaykh replied:

“Isn’t the graveyard in As-Sālihiyyah”!?”

(Ad-Dur tah-Thamin fi Tarjamti Faqihil-Umah page 218)
