Imam Malik’s immense respect for the ahadith of Rasool (SAW)

 

Abdullah Ibn Al-Mubarak said:

“I was with Malik while he was relating hadith to us and a scorpion stung him ten times. Malik changed colour and grew ashen, but he did not interrupt the hadith of the Messenger of Allah (SAW). When the people left him, I said ‘I have seen something wondrous from you today.'” he mentioned the story and Malik said, “I was not steadfast out of fortitute, but out of respect for the hadith of the Messenger of Allah (SAW).”
