عَنْ  مُعَاوِيَةَ بْنِ الْحَكَمِ السُّلَمِيِّ قَالَ قُلْتُ يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ وَمِنَّا رِجَالٌ يَخُطُّونَ قَالَ كَانَ نَبِيٌّ مِنْ الْأَنْبِيَاءِ يَخُطُّ فَمَنْ وَافَقَ خَطَّهُ فَذَاكَ

قال القرطبي إِدْرِيسُ عَلَيْهِ السَّلَامُ أَوَّلُ مَنْ خَطَّ بِالْقَلَمِ وَأَوَّلُ مَنْ خَاطَ الثِّيَابَ وَلَبِسَ الْمَخِيطَ وَأَوَّلُ مَنْ نَظَرَ فِي عِلْمِ النُّجُومِ وَالْحِسَابِ وَسَيْرِهَا
