"...all that mattered to me was (saving) time!"
*Please appropriately reference this quote to:, thankyou!*
The Imaam of Hadeeth, the Shaykh - Muhammad Naasiruddeen al-Albaanee (rahima-hullaah) narrated:

I bought a piece of land because it was cheap, and then began building a house and a shop (on it). As it was, the distance between my house to the Zaahiriyyah library which I used to frequent became further. (At the time), I used to work on a watch or two before the library opened its doors (in the morning).

I (then) bought a bicycle to ride, and it was the first time the people of Damascus saw such a sight, that a shaykh wearing a turban was riding a bicycle!; as a result they were very surprised. (At the time), there was a magazine run by a Christian entitled: ((al-Mudh-hik al-Mubkee)) and it mentioned this ("amazing") sight, and I was none too concerned by these small issues, since all that mattered to me was (saving) time!”
