‘Abdullaah ibn Imaam Ahmad bin Hanbal said: ‘I said to my father: ‘Did Ma’roof have any knowledge?’ to which he replied: “My son, he had the basis of all knowledge and that is the fear of Allaah!”
[Hilyatul Awliyaa (8/360)]
Ma’roof al Karkhee Aboo Mahfooz Al-Baghdaadee, was described by Imaam adh-Dhahabee as the authority of the ascetics, the blessing of our times. Imaam Ahmad said that he was a person whose du’aa’ was answered.
