He sold his own house to publish a book!

Sheikh Jawaad Al Balaghi An-Najafi was an author of great prowess, who discussed and debated with people of various faiths: the Jews, Christians, Marxists and even atheists who believed that the world has come about through coincidence. A man of such great talents used to live in great poverty, in a poor house, his bed made of palm leaves. It is related that the extent of his poverty was so great that when he wanted to publish his writings, he had no money, and thus had to sell his own house. This shows how our scholars sacrificed their basic necessities just so as to spread the religion of Allah. (AALAME BARZAKH PAGE 210)
