*Imam al Jawzi (rahimuhuAllah) is said to be the most prolific scholar of Islam It is said that he is written 700 volumes and each volume had about 10 books. (People are skeptical of this number by the way.)
When people used to come visit Imam al Jawzi, he would make them sharpen his pencils so that he could continue writing as soon as they left.
On his deathbed, his only regret was that he had wasted too much time eating. SubhanAllah.
This is what our scholars used to be like.
*Not to be confused with ibn al Qayyim al Jawziyya, Ibn Taymiyya’s disciple
