In the Name of All?h, the Ever Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy
There comes a ?ad?th in the Musnad of Im?m A?mad (ra?imuhull??):
A man once said, “O Mu?ammad! [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 All?h (?allall?hu ?alayhi wa-sallam) replied: “O people! Upon you is to hold fast to taqwá (piety) and let not the Shay??n allure you. I am Mu?ammad the son of ?Abdull?h; I am a servant and Messenger of All?h; I do not like for you to raise me above my level which I have been stationed by All?h.”
Im?m al-Alb?n? said its chain is ?a??? according to the conditions of Muslim.
