Qadhi Abu al-Fadhl (r.a.) on Imam ibn al-Mubarak's (r.a.) Trade

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

Qadhi Abu al-Fadhl (r.a.) said that Imam as-Sadafi (r.a.) mentioned, “When ibn al-Mubarak came of age, his father sent him 50,000 to use for commerce.  He sought after knowledge until he had spent the money.  When it was gone, his father met him and said, ‘What have you bought?’

He brought out his books for him and said, ‘This is my trade.’

His father went into the house and gave him 30,000 darahim more and said, ‘Take this and follow your trade with them,’ and he spent them.”
