CHAPTER: THE NEARNESS OF ALLAAH'S APOSTLE (SALLALLAAHU ALAYHI WA SALLAM) TO THE PEOPLE AND THEIR SEEKING BLESSINGS FROM HIM (AND HIS POSSESSIONS)
Anas b. Malik reported that when Allaah's Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) had completed his dawn prayer, the servants of Medina came to him with utensils containing water, and no utensil was brought in which he did not dip his hand; and sometime they came in the cold dawn (and he did not feel reluctant in acceding to their request even in the cold weather) and dipped his hand in them.
Anas reported: I saw when the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) got his hair cut by the barber, his Companions came round him and they eagerly wanted that no hair should fall but in the hand of a person.
Anas reported that a woman had a partial derangement in her mind, so she said. Allaah's Messellaer, I want something from you. He said: Mother of so and so, see on which side of the road you would like (to stand and talk) so that I may do the needfull for you. He stood aside with her on the roadside until she got what she needed.
