Lesson To Humanity On Humility.

Recommended Posts

As-Salaam alaikum,

The Noble Prophet, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, said:-- "He who humbles himself before Allah, Allah elevates [in degree]."   To he who increases himself in humility and abasement, Allah Ta'ala grants high station. In this regards, permit me to share with you the following wonderful Hadith in which Sayyadi Abu Sa'eed al-Khudri, may Allah be pleased with him, related that the Messenger of Allah, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam:

        "used to feed his camel, sweep [his] house, mend [his] sandals, patch his clothes, milk [his sheep, eat with his servant and help him

      grind, when he [the servant] got tired. He was not embarrassed to carry his goods from the bazaar to his family. He would shake hands

    with both the rich and the poor; he was the first to greet people; he would not scorn any meal of which he was invited to partake; even if

   this was unripe and dry dates. He made do with free supplies [of provision]; he was gentle of character, generous of nature, pleasant of

  company; his face was cheerful, he smiled much, without laughing and showed [his] sadness without frowning; he was humble without

 being self-effacing; generous without being extravagant; his heart was gentle, he was compassionate to every Muslim; he would never eat

his fill and he would never stretch his hand to a thing he desired."... Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam!!!
