Al-Dhahabī said in Tadhkirat al-Ḥuffāẓ: “[He was] the erudite hāfiẓ and author Abū Sulaymān, the muḥaddith of Damascus and the son of its judge. Ibn Zabr said, ‘Abū Jaʿfar al-Ṭaḥāwī reviewed some of the work I authored, and he became impressed. He said to me, ‘O Abū Sulaymān, those of your ilk (i.e. the ḥadith scholars) are the chemists and those of our ilk (i.e. the fiqh scholars) are the doctors.’’”
Al-Kattānī said: “Many narrated from him and he dictated in the Jāmiʿ Masjid. He was a thiqah narrator, noble and dependable. He authored a book entitled al-Wafiyāt which was famous on the tongues. Abū Naṣr ibn al-Jabbān related that Ibn Zabr told him that he saw Allah, the Exalted, during his sleep and he mentioned that he saw just a light.”
ʿAbd al-Ḥay ibn al-ʿAmād al-Ḥanbalī said in Shadharāt al-Dhahab: “The deaths of 379h: From them was Abū Sulaymān ibn Zabr, he was a muḥaddith, a ḥāfiẓ, a thiqah narrator and a highly revered individual. He authored a number of beneficial works.”
