A daughter of one of the Neighbors of Mansour ibn Al-Mu’tamir -Rahimahu Allah- told her father once: Father, where did the log that was up on top of Mansour’s roof go?

So her father told her: My daughter, that was Mansour praying at night.

[1] Siyar A’laam Al-Nubala by al-Imam al-Dhahabi 5/403

قَالَتْ بِنْتٌ لِجَارِ مَنْصُوْرِ بنِ المُعْتَمِرِ: يَا أَبَةُ، أَيْنَ الخَشَبَةُ الَّتِي كَانَتْ فِي سَطحِ مَنْصُوْرٍ قَائِمَةً؟
قَالَ: يَا بُنَيَّةُ، ذَاكَ مَنْصُوْرٌ، كَانَ يَقُوْمُ اللَّيْلَ
