Ibn ‘Abbas (radhiallahu `anhuma) said, ‘Allah `azza wa jall has not given knowledge to a slave except that he was still in his youthand all of goodness is in one’s youth’ then he recited the verses,

قَالُوا سَمِعْنَا فَتًى يَذْكُرُهُمْ يُقَالُ لَهُ إِبْرَاهِيمُ
“They said, “We heard a young man mention them who is called Ibrahim.”
[al-Anbiya: 60]

 

إِنَّهُمْ فِتْيَةٌ آمَنُوا بِرَبِّهِمْ وَزِدْنَاهُمْ هُدًى
“Indeed, they were youths who believed in their Lord, and We increased them in guidance.” [al-Kahf: 13]

 

وَآتَيْنَاهُ الْحُكْمَ صَبِيًّا
“And We gave him wisdom while yet a child.”
[Maryam: 12]
‘Uluuw al himmah
