Amazing incident of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam !

Abū Umāmah radiyallāhu ‛anhu narrates that Rasūlullāh sallallāhu ‛alayhi wa sallam passed by Baqī‛ al-Gharqad [the graveyard of Madīnah] on an intensely hot day and the people were walking behind him. When he heard their footsteps, this weighed heavily upon him. He therefore sat down until all the people passed him. He did this so that any effects of greatness may not settle on his heart [in other words, he may not feel proud that people are walking behind him].” (Ibn Mājah)

حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ يَحْيَى، حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو الْمُغِيرَةِ، حَدَّثَنَا مُعَانُ بْنُ رِفَاعَةَ، حَدَّثَنِي عَلِيُّ بْنُ يَزِيدَ، قَالَ سَمِعْتُ الْقَاسِمَ بْنَ عَبْدِ الرَّحْمَنِ، يُحَدِّثُ عَنْ أَبِي أُمَامَةَ، قَالَ مَرَّ النَّبِيُّ ـ صلى الله عليه وسلم ـ فِي يَوْمٍ شَدِيدِ الْحَرِّ نَحْوَ بَقِيعِ الْغَرْقَدِ وَكَانَ النَّاسُ يَمْشُونَ خَلْفَهُ فَلَمَّا سَمِعَ صَوْتَ النِّعَالِ وَقَرَ ذَلِكَ فِي نَفْسِهِ فَجَلَسَ حَتَّى قَدَّمَهُمْ أَمَامَهُ لِئَلاَّ يَقَعَ فِي نَفْسِهِ شَىْءٌ مِنَ الْكِبْرِ
