Awake ’til Dawn For His Fathers Comfort…

Al Ma`mun said:

“I have never seen anyone more kind to his father than al Fadl Ibn Yahya’. His kindness reached the highest level when they were in prison. His father used to make wudhu only with hot water. Once, on a cold night, the prison warden stopped supplying them with firewood; so when his father went to sleep, al Fadl filled a container with water and held it close to the fire of the lamp to heat it up. He stayed in that position, awake ’til dawn, so that his father could make wudhu with hot water; so he went through all that out of kindness to his father.”

al Mannawi’s “Birr al Waalidayn”
