[1] Humility of our beloved Salaf – Ibn Umar (radiyallaahu-anhumaa)

A man said to Ibn Umar (radiyallaahu-anhu): ‘’O (you) the best of the people!” So he said, ‘’I am neither the best of the people nor the son of the best of the people; rather I am a slave from the slaves of Allaah. I have hope in Allaah and I fear Him.  By Allaah you (people) will not leave a man until you destroy him’’.

[Siyar 3/236]
