Abdullaah ibn `Amr (a Companion) said

`“A Bedouin man came to the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, wearing a black wool Jubbah (cloak) that had silk embroidery, and said: ‘Your companion (meaning the Messenger of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) wants to raise the rank of every shepherd, the son of a shepherd, and lower the rank of every horseman, the son of a horsemen. Then the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, stood angrily, grabbed him by his Jubbah and said: ‘I do not see that you are wearing the clothes of those who have intellect.’ Then, he, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, went back and sat, and said: ‘When Nooh was about to die, he called his two sons and said: ‘I am confined to only being able to give you two an extolment; I order you to do two things, and forbid you from two things: I forbid you from polytheism and arrogance.””

Sa`eed ibn Ayman, the servant of Ka`b ibn Sawr (a Companion), said

“When the Messenger of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, was speaking with his companions, a poor man approached and sat next to a rich man. When he did so, the rich man pulled a part of his garment towards himself, as if to not allow the man to touch it. Afterwards, the color of the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, changed, and said: ‘O so-and-so, are you afraid that sitting close to him will cause your wealth to go to him, and his poverty to you?’ The man said: ‘Is richness bad, O Messenger of Allah?’ He, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, replied: ‘Yes; your richness calls you to Hellfire, while his poverty calls him to Paradise.’ The man said: ‘So what will save me from Hellfire?’ He, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, said: ‘Console him.’ The rich man said: ‘I shall do so.’ Meanwhile, the other man said: ‘I have no interest in him.’ So the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, said: ‘Then seek forgiveness and supplicate for your brother.’”
