The next scholar we completed some time ago in our Inheritors of the Prophets series was Imaam Sufyaan at Thawree Raheemahullaah.
We used the following link to read about his biography
We learnt about his birth place and about his father who was also a scholar of Islaam. We read that he was a Mujtahid, Imaam of the Memorisers and the most noble scholar at his time who was well known for acting upon his knowledge.
We went through his teachers and his students and some of the wonderful saying of other scholars about him.
We read and re read some of his wise statements through which we understood that he was always seeking to learn hadeeth to the extent that people were asking him when will you stop seeking for hadeeth!
We learnt that he died of a stomach pain and in fact made wudoo 60 times that particular night before he died raheemahullaah.
The document we did for this could be downloaded here Inshaa Allaah.
