Shaykh Abdulaziz hafidhahullah spoke to us of his moments with Shaykh Muqbil wherein he found the most delight. 
As you know Shaykh Muqbil was a muhadith and his expertise was ilmul rijaal. Shaykh Muqbil, he said, would infuse the love of knowledge within us. He, rahimahullah, mentioned to us how the salaf when they would seek knowledge and travel afar, they would never open the letters sent to them from their Homeland in fear of reading news that would force them to return home and disrupt their pursuit of knowledge. So they hid away their letters until a lapse of many years. They would then open the letters and find that their fathers had died, so and so was passed away. 
Shaykh Abdulaziz told us that was one thing the Shaykh instilled in him, love of knowledge and its keepers. Allah have mercy upon Shaykh Muqbil and safeguard the scholars of Ahlus Sunnah. Ameen
