An Example of The Humility of Ibn Umar (May Allah be Pleased with him)

A man said to Ibn Umar [radiyallaahu-anhumaa], “O (you) the best of the people!”

He [Ibn Umar] said: “I am neither the best of the people nor the son of the best of the people, rather I am a slave amongst the slaves of Allaah. I have hope in Allaah’s [mercy] and I fear Him. By Allaah! You [people] will not leave a man until you destroy him.”

[Siyar 3/236]
