Lessons learnt from this Hadith: 1.Being humble means to believe that others are better and superior than you. 2.This will help you in being of service to others. 3.

Story I Hadhrat Salmaan Farsi was the governor of Madinah Munawwarah. On one occasion, he was walking through the market when someone thought that he was a labourer. That person told him to pick up his load. Hadhrat Salmaan happily picked up the load and carried it for the man. When the people saw this, many requested that he give the load to them but he refused.
After some time the person realised who was carrying his load. He became worried and begged Hadhrat Salmaan to forgive him. Hadhrat Salmaan told him not to worry. The man felt ashamed of what he had done that he took an oath never to give his load to anybody to carry.
STORY II Hadhrat Umar's journey to Syria is well known. He and his slave were travelling on one camel to Syria. They shared the camel. For a certain distance Hadhrat Umar would ride the camel and his slave would lead it, and for the same distance the slave would ride the camel and Hadhrat Umar would lead it.
At one stage it was Hadhrat Umar's turn to lead the camel when they had to pass through water. He took off his shoes and, holding them under his arms, entered the water and crossed. When they neared Syria, it was once again the turn of Hadhrat Umar to lead the camel. Hadhrat Abu Ubaidah, who was waiting for Hadhrat Umar, saw this and said, "O Ameerul Mumineen, the people of the city will come to welcome you. It is inappropriate that you lead the camel while the slave rides it. You should be riding the camel." Hadhrat Umar. replied, "Allah had honoured us through Islaam. Your suggestion will make me to be unjust to my slave. Should I be unjust to impress people?”
