Rabee’ (rahimahullah) mentioned the following, describing the profound generosity of Imaam Shaafi‘ee (rahimahullah):

Imaam Shaafi‘ee (rahimahullah) was such that if any person asked him for anything, his complexion would change as he would feel overwhelmed by the need to assist the person, and he would thereafter hasten to give the person that which he sought.

On one occasion, a person asked Imaam Shaafi‘ee (rahimahullah) for something while he was mounted on his conveyance. When the person placed his need before Imaam Shaafi‘ee (rahimahullah), his complexion immediately changed. Imaam Shaafi‘ee (rahimahullah) did not have anything to give to the person at that time and thus said to him, “Tell me where you will be later on so that I will be able to send to you that which you require.”

The man informed Imaam Shaafi‘ee (rahimahullah) of where he would be, and accordingly, when Imaam Shaafi‘ee (rahimahullah) returned to his home, he sent the person what he required.
