(PBUH) which is enough to incur the displeasure of Allah.

Anas bin Malik (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:
A slave-girl of Al-Madinah would take hold of the
hand of the Prophet (PBUH) and take him wherever she desired.
This Hadith throws light on the sublime courtesy and unique humbleness of Messenger of Allah
(PBUH) as well as his passion to meet the wants of the needy. It provides all the Muslims with a worth-emulating
example. The Hadith does not mean that the slave-girl would actually touch the Prophet's hands, but that he would
show humbleness to all kinds of people, be they young or old, rich or poor, men or women.

Al-Aswad bin Yazid (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: `Aishah (May Allah be pleased with her) was
asked: "What did Messenger of Allah (PBUH) used to do inside his house?'' She answered:
"He used to keep
himself busy helping members of his family, and when it was the time for Salat (the prayer), he would get up for
Here too, we are informed about the extreme humbleness of Messenger of Allah (PBUH). Many a
man deems his insult and indignity to extend his co-operation to woman in household affairs. This is against the
practice of Messenger of Allah (PBUH). To co-operate with woman in doing domestic things is a Sunnah and man
should not feel complex in it. However, an excessive interest in domestic engagements which makes one indifferent
to Salat is not desirable. Rather, one is supposed to give up all domestic engagements when it is time to offer Salat
and be ready for it.

Tamim bin Usaid (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: I came to Messenger of Allah (PBUH) while he
was delivering a Khutbah and said:
"O Messenger of Allah, a stranger (meaning himself) has come to inquire about
his Deen. He is quite ignorant about his Deen
.'' Messenger of Allah (PBUH) interrupted his Khutbah and turned to
Then a chair was brought for him and he sat on it. He started instructing me what Allah had taught him. Then he
resumed his Khutbah and completed it.
This Hadith also mirrors, apart from the extreme humbleness of the Prophet (PBUH), his affability
and consolation for a traveller as well as the priority which he gave to faith and Islamic teachings. Moreover, it
reveals that, during the delivery of sermon, if it is needed, the preacher can converse with somebody and also leave
the pulpit temporarily.

Anas (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: When the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) finished eating his
food, he would lick his three fingers (i.e., the forefinger, the middle finger and the thumb). He (PBUH) said,
anyone of you drops a morsel, he should remove anything harmful from it and then eat it. He should not leave it for
