Imam Sulayman ibn Mahran al-Asadi al-A’amash's (r.a.) Poor Eyesight

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

Imam Sulayman ibn Mahran al-Asadi al-A’amash (r.a.) was called “al-A’amash” because he had poor vision.  In his time, people used to take baths in a common bathrooms known as “hammam”.  One day a man came out completely nude.  So, Imam al-A’amash (r.a.) covered his eyes with one hand, and used his other hand to feel around and to guide himself.  The man said to him, “O al-A’amash, have you now become al-a’amaa?”  A’amaa” means blind.

Imam al-A’amash (r.a.) replied, “It seems to have happened since your pants fell to the ground.”
