I wish I could do the first part... (Ins sha Allah)

 Imam Ibn Abi Dunya quoted:

كان حماد بن أبي سليمان يفطر في كل ليلة من شهر رمضان خمسين إنسانا فإذا كان ليلة الفطر كساهم ثوبا ثوبا

Hammaad bin Abee Sulaymaan used to provide iftaar for fifty people every night of Ramadan.

On the night of Eid al-Fitr he would buy all of these people a thawb each.

- Makarim al-Akhlaq 1/96

When 'Abdullaah bin Idrees (may Allah have mercy on him) was on his death bed his daughter started crying.

He said,

لا تبكي يا بنية ، فقد ختمت القرآن في هذا البيت أربعة آلاف ختمة

 "Do not cry, because I have finished the entire Qur'an four thousand times inside this house"

- Quoted by Imam Ibn Jawzi in Sifat al-Safwah 3/170
