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."
