The Most Humble

The beloved Prophet of God ﷺ  was humble and he loved
humbleness and humility. He ﷺ disliked pride and arrogance.
From his humility,1 he a would sit on the floor, eat sitting on
the ground and accept the invitations of slaves and eat the food
that they ate. He ﷺ would partake in the household chores
with his family and would sit with the poor and weak. He ﷺ  taught others to humble themselves and not to feel superiority
over others, as the one who thinks he is superior to others will
be brought down by God.2
