It has been narrated:

((When Abu ‘Abdullaah ‘Abdur-Rahmaan ibn Ahmad al-Khuttootee (died 335A.H.) arrived in al-Basrah (Iraq), he had no books with him. He remained in al-Basrah for some months until his books arrived. Thereafter he said:

“I narrated 50,000 hadeeth from memory until my books arrived”.))
