Abdullah Ibn Umar

For a little while, Abdullah was pleased. Then with his right hand he pushed away the thawb and said: “No! I am afraid for myself. I fear that it shall make arrogant and boastful. And God does not love the arrogant boaster.”

Maymun ibn Mahran relates the following: “I entered the house of Ibn Umar. I estimated everything in his house including his bed, his blanket, his carpet and everything else in it. What I found was not a hundred dirhams’ worth.”

That was not because Abdullah ibn Umar was poor. Indeed he was rich. Neither was it because he was a miser for indeed he was generous and liberal.
