Taqwa (Piety and God-consciousness)

flood

One of the leading scholars on commentary and recitation of the Qur’an from the Tabieen, Mujahid (RadiAllahu Anhu) says:

“Abdullah bin Zubayr (RadiAllahu Anhu) had reached the peak in his worship of Allah, which no one else had reached. One time the area around the Ka’bah where people would walk around was flooded and the people were unable to make tawaf of the Ka’bah for a week. Abdullah, on the other hand, made tawaf of the Ka’bah for a week by swimming around it.

(Ali al Muttaki, XIII, 471/37228; Zahabi, Sier, III, 370).
