Hazrat Nouman bin Basheer Razi Allahu Anhu

When Hazrat Nouman got a bit older, flag of Islam was fluttering high. He loved Hazrat Muhammad, Islam and masjid a lot. He would perform salaah (daily prayers) with Rasul Allah in congregation and would sit near his (peace be upon him) seat, during khutbah, listening to him intently. Due to these characteristics, young hazrat Nouman was an apple of his (peace be upon him) eye. Once someone from Tayif sent grapes for Hazrat Muhammad sallallahu alaehi wasallam. He called hazrat Nouman and gave him two bunches of grapes, saying: "One is for you and other is for your mother. Present it to her when you get home." When this little companion (razi Allahu anhu) was on his way to home, he ate both bunches since they were so tasty. After few days Hazrat Muhammad asked him: "Did you give your mother's share to her?" He (razi Allahu anhu) told him truthfully that I ate all of them myself. Rasool Allah smiled and plling his ear affectionately, said: "O traitor! You ate your mother's share too."
(At that time according to the books, Hazrat Nouman bin Basheer razi Allahu anhu's age was 8 years 7 months)

An Incident With HAZRAT SAAD BIN 'IBAADAH razi Allahu anhu

One day Hazrat Muhammad sallallahu alehi wasallam went to Hazrat Saad RA's home to meet him. He (pbuh) was used to of taking permission before entering into anyone's home so when he arrived at Hazrat Saad's place he said 'Assalam o alaikum' to inform him of his arrival. Hazrat Saad replied in low voice that Muhammad sallallahu alaehi wasallam couldn't hear. He said the salaam again and Hazrat Saad replied in that low voice this time too. Third time, Rehmaty Aalam (peace and blessings be upon him) said the salaam rather loudly still Hazrat Saad replied in low voice which he(pbuh) missed again. It was his(pbuh) another rule that if nobody replies on three calls he would return. So, he was about to turn away when Hazrat Saad RA came out hurriedly and said "Come inside. I heard each of your salaam and was replying to it in low voice. The reason was to gain maximum of your salaam." Hazrat Muhammad (pbuh) smiled at the passion of his devotees and went inside with him.

Abdur Rehman bin Abi Leyla narrates from Hazrat Suhaib razi Allahu anhu that one day Rasul Allah was among his companions(razi Allahu tala anhuma) when he laughed. Then he said, "Wouldn't you ask why did I laugh?" We asked, "O Allah's Messenger, why did you laugh?" He said: "I laughed at pious man's surprising case. that all of his matters are based on his welfare. When any good reaches to him, he becomes happy and thanks Allah and so gains reward. And when any thing bad or unpleasant happens to him, he endures it with patience and this patience also becomes the reason of him gaining reward. All in all, in each of his matters is good for him."

What Does Hazrat Anas razi Allahu anhum say

Hazrat Anas RA says that I have been in service for Hazrat Muhammad sallallahu alaehi wasallam for 10 years and during this long time he never scoffed at me nor said why didn't you do this/did that. Once he told me to go somewhere for work. I said I will not go when in my heart I had decided to go. Then I came out of the house and got busy playing with other children. After some time he (pbuh)came from behind me silently and put his hand on my neck. I turned around and found him laughing. He said kindly: "Dear Anas, now go to that work." And I said: "Ya Rasul Allah, I am going."
