A welcoming and humble heart

Reference: Safahaat Mushriqah min Hayaat al-Imaam Muhammed ibn Saalih al-’Uthaymeen – Page 74.

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.’

He is a graduate of the Islaamic University of Madeenah, having graduated from the Institute of Arabic Language, and later the Faculty of Sharee'ah in 2004. He currently resides in Birmingham, UK.
