Display your garment where you are known

January 15, 2014 § Leave a comment

Sa’eed ibn Jubayr did not teach ahadeeth in Asbahaan, then when he returned to Kufah he would teach hadeeth. So when we asked about that, he replied: Display your garment where you are known. [As-Siyar 4/324]

(The owner of the store with various garments would not display or open up the fabrics to every passer by. He only does so to those whom he feels will purchase it. Likewise, with knowledge.)

كان سعيد بن جُبير لا يُحدِّثُ في أصبهان، ثمّ رجِعَ إلى الكوفة فجَعلَ يُحدّث، فقُلنا له في ذلك فقال: انْشُرْ بزّك حيث تُعْرفُ. السير 4/324
