    There are numerous stories related concerning his piety, which confirm each other. He would not accept money from a governor or a ruler due to his piety and when Al-Mutawakkil sent him ten thousand dirhams with one of his chamberlains, the chamberlain said to him: "He send salutations of peace to you and he says to you spend this." But he refused to accept it. The chamberlain said to him: "Oh, Abu 'Abdullah! I fear that your refusal will cause enmity between you and him, so it is in your interes There are numerous stories related concerning his piety, which confirm each other. He would not accept money from a governor or a ruler due to his piety and when Al-Mutawakkil sent him ten thousand dirhams with one of his chamberlains, the chamberlain said to him: "He send salutations of peace to you and he says to you spend this." But he refused to accept it. The chamberlain said to him: "Oh, Abu 'Abdullah! I fear that your refusal will cause enmity between you and him, so it is in your interest to accept it." And he left it with him and departed. Then at the end of the night, Imam Ahmad called his family, his nephews and his dependents and said: "I have not slept this night because of this money." So they sat with him and they wrote the names of those in need among the followers of Hadeeth and others among the inhabitants of Baghdad and Al-Basrah, then in the morning, he distributed it among the people, in portions of fifty, a hundred and two hundred, leaving not even a dirham. Among those to whom he gave were Abu Kuraib and Abu Sa'eed Al-Ashajj. He gave away the bag in which it came and he did not give anything of it to his family, even though they were in the direst of straits and the most urgent need. Then his son, Salih came and took a piece of it for his son, and Imam Ahmad - may Allah have mercy on him - said nothing. The Caliph was informed that he had given the whole of this gift in charity, until nothing remained of it and that he had given the bag in charity. 'Ali bin Jahm said: "Oh, Commander of the Faithful! He accepted it from you and gave it in charity on your behalf. What does Ahmad want with money? A loaf of bread is sufficient for him." Upon which, the Caliph replied: "That is true," Imam Ahmad's Musnad (1/200) and Al-Hakim (2/13) and authenticated by Al-Albani in Irwa' Al-Ghaleel (20749).

    Imam Ahmad RH is unparalled and a truly great Muslim man. May Allah SWT have mercy upon him, and grant him the highest jannah. Aside from the spelling mistakes, grammar mistakes, wrong word choices and mistranslations, this book paints a very accurate and beautiful image of the life of Ahmad Ibn Hanbal. I would recommend this to anyone who can only read the English translation of his life.

    A surprisingly detailed biography of the great Imam Ahmad. It has many reference points that you can always go back to. The reason why it is not a 5 star is the lack of information about arguably the most important part of Ahmad's life, al-Mihna (the trial). A surprisingly detailed biography of the great Imam Ahmad.
