Ath-Thahabi (a scholar) said about him, “He was one of the foremost, and one of those who were superior in their knowledge.”He also said: “He was counted as being an intellectual, and a scholar.”The Messenger of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, asked him to read some parts of the Quran to him, and he read from the beginning of Chapter An-Nisaa.

Abdullaah ibn Mas`ood said

“Once the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, said to me: ‘Read to me.’ I said: ‘O Messenger of Allah,should I read to you while it has been revealed to you?’ He, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, said: ‘Yes.’ So I started to read from Chapter An-Nisaa’ until I reachedthis verse (which means): «So how [will it be] when We bring from every nation a witness and We bring you, [O Muhammad], against these [people] as a witness?» [Quran: 4:41] He, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, said: ‘Stop here.’ When I  looked at him, I found that his eyes were shedding tears”.The Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, told people to learn the Quran from him saying: “Learn the Quran from four people: Ibn Umm `Abd [Ibn Mas`ood], Mu`aath ibn Jabal, Ubayy ibn Ka`b and Saalim [Ibn Ma`qil] the servant of Abu Huthayfah.”
