Born in 873 AD in Basra of parents who were themselves 'Ulama'. His forefather was the famous Abu Musa al-Ash'ari, the great Companion, who was one of the two mediators appointed after the Battle of Siffin by Ali ibn Abi Talib RA and Mu'awiya RA. The other mediator was Amr ibn al-As RA.

His father Shaykh Isma'il was a renowned Aalim of his time and he took special care to give the right type of education to his brilliant son in Qur'an, Hadith, Fiqh, Usul, ad-din, etc. from his early boyhood. The father took special care to educate the boy on the lines recommended by the Shari'a and he asked him not to get in touch with the Mu'tazilite group of scholars who were very active in those days and who were spreading their controversial ideas. read more

A college physics professor was explaining a particularly complicated concept to his class when a pre-med student interrupted him. “Why do we have to learn this stuff?” one young man blurted out.

“To save lives,” the professor responded.

A few minutes later the student spoke up again. “So how does physics save lives?”

The professor stared at the student for a long time without saying a word. Finally, the professor continued, “Physics saves lives because it keeps certain people out of medical school.”
