…but out of respect

 

Abdullah Ibn al-Mubarak رحمه الله تعالى narrates:

“I was with (Imam) Malik while he was relating hadeeth to us and a scorpion stung him many times. Malik’s colour changed (from the effect and pain), but he did not interrupt the hadeeth of the Messenger of Allaah صلى الله عليه وسلم (he was narrating). 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 fortitude (i.e. strength or courage), but out of respect for the hadeeth of the Messenger of Allaah صلى الله عليه وسلم”
