• true • taqwaa •

Abu Zur’ah ar-Raazee (died 264A.H.) said:

My ears have never heard anything of knowledge except that it has rested upon my heart (i.e. I have memorized it).

Whilst I would walk through the market of Baghdad, I could hear the sound of female singers from the rooms, so I would put my fingers in my ears (to block out the sound) out of fear that it may rest upon my heart (i.e. I may end up memorizing the words)
