Ayman ibn ‘Abdil-’Azeez Abaanamee narrates :
‘I recall, once, I was walking with the Shaykh heading towards the Haram [in Makkah], and every time we passed by someone he would convey greetings (salaam) to them; even the children.
He extended greetings to one child who recognised him, and who then gave the Shaykh a miswaak (tooth stick). The Shaykh accepted it, smiling with complete humility and a welcoming heart.’
