Benefit: The Humility of the Messenger of Allāh

In the Name of Allāh, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy

There comes a Ḥadīth in the Musnad of Imām Aḥmad (raḥimuhullāḥ):

A man once said, “O Muḥammad! [You are] our chief and the son of our chief! The best of us and the son of the best of us.” 

The Messenger of Allāh (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhi wa-sallam) replied: “O people! Upon you is to hold fast to taqwá (piety) and let not the Shayṭān allure you. I am Muḥammad the son of ʿAbdullāh; I am a servant and Messenger of Allāh; I do not like for you to raise me above my level which I have been stationed by Allāh.” 

Imām al-Albānī said its chain is ṣaḥīḥ according to the conditions of Muslim.
