    Assalaamu `alaikum warahmatullaahi wabarakaatuh!

    This is Ibn al-Qayyim's (may Allaah have Mercy on him) summary of the extent of our prophet Muhammad :saw:'s noble manners.

    "The Prophet (may Allaah raise his rank and grant him peace) used to greet the children when he passed by them. Sometimes, a little girl would take him by the hand and he would allow her to lead him wherever she wanted. He (may Allaah raise his rank and grant him peace) used to lick his fingers after eating. He (may Allaah raise his rank and grant him peace) would be in the service of his family when at home. Never would he become angry because of something personal. He (may Allaah raise his rank and grant him peace) used to repair his own sandals and mend his own torn clothes. He would milk his goat himself for his own family. He would feed his own camel. He used to eat with his servants, sit in the company of the poor people, and personally take care of the needs of widows and orphans. He would be the one to initiate the greeting when meeting people. He would respond to the humblest of invitations. He (may Allaah raise his rank and grant him peace) lived a very modest lifestyle, a man of soft manners, naturally kind, easy to get along with, having a pleasant smile on his face, gracefully humble, extremely generous but not wasteful, soft-hearted and gentle in his dealings with each and every Muslim, lowering the wings of humility to the believers, bearing their companionship in such a gentle way." [Madaarij As-Saalikeen 3/111-112]

    Subhaanallaah, How amazing was he! May Allaah `azza wa jall aid us in following his ( :saw: ) footsteps.
