Please, just a hug from you =)

Anas ibn Malik radiyallahu anhu reports,

“A resident of the wilderness whose name was Zaahir (ibn Hiraam Al-Ashja’ee), whenever he visited Rasulullah SAW he brought with him presents of the wilderness, vegetables etc., and presented it to Rasulullah SAW. When he intended to leave Madinah, Rasulullah SAW used to present him with provisions of the city. Once Rasulullah SAW said, ‘Zaahir is our wilderness, and we are his city.’ Rasulullah SAW was attached to him. Zaahir RA was not very handsome.

Rasulullah SAW once approached him while he was selling his merchandise. Rasulullah SAW caught him in between the arms(hugged) from the back in such a manner that he (Sayyidina Zaahir RA) could not see him. Zaahir RA said, ‘Who is this?, leave me.’ But when he saw with the corner of his eye that it was Rasulullah SAW, he straightened his back and began pressing it to the chest of Rasulullah SAW(For as long as he gained this opportunity it was better than a thousand gifts).

Rasulullah SAW then said, ‘Who will purchase this slave?’ Zaahir radiyallahu anhu replied, ‘O’ Rasool of Allah, if you shall sell me, you will be selling a defective thing, and will earn a very little sum.’ Rasulullah SAW said, ‘No, you are not defective in the sight of Allah, but very valuable.”

[Sunan Tirmidhi]
