He was one of those who read books, adhered to worship, persevered in knowledge, and abstained from asceticism. The biographers considered him to be of the third class of followers. Al-Dhahabi said about him: His narration of the Musnad is few, but the abundance of his knowledge in the Israelites, and from the sheets of the People of the Book. Al-Bukhari, Muslim, Abu Dawood, Al-Tirmidhi, Al-Nasa’i and Muhammad bin Majah narrated it in the interpretation. Wahb was interested in the news of the Arabs in the pre-Islamic era, and he narrated the news of non-Arabs that he gleaned from the holy books, and his news is dominated by the character of folkloric stories; That is why he is described as "a news historian and a scholar of ancient myths".
