Abu Ali al-Husayn ibn Abdullah ibn Sina

 You must be familiar with someone named Ibn Sina, one of the world's famous Islamic scientists.

However, the facts about Ibn Sina are not widely known. He is known as the father of modern medicine. 
Even though during his lifetime, this philosopher from Uzbekistan also took an interest in other fields of science. Such as physics, mathematics, chemistry, even art.

He is thirsty for knowledge

Since childhood, he was known to be very thirsty for knowledge. This is evident when he was seven years old, he had finished memorizing the Qur'an. Then he became interested in Aristotle. In the process of learning, Ibn Sina studied with many scientists. Including Al-Farabi, one of the famous philosophers. Basically, He did not look at whom He was studying. Most importantly he can gain knowledge from that person. Be it a vegetable seller, or other ordinary people.

Don't like lying down and being lazy

Ibn Sina really liked to spend his afternoon researching in the laboratory, teaching, or treating patients. Meanwhile, throughout the night, he studied and wrote journals and books. By the time he was 18 years old, his knowledge had been recognized. He became a lecturer and a physicist at that age. Of course, this is far from the current generation who chooses to "lay down" to fill their spare time. Ibn Sina always put knowledge above all else. Because of this nature, he has never married in his life. His secretary even stated that he died of exhaustion.
