Humility in ones occupation

The Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said, “Every Prophet has tended sheep.” He was asked: “And did you?” He (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) replied: “Yes, I tended them for a few carats for the Makkans.”

[Sahih Al-Bukhari]

Commentary:

This Hadith teaches us that from the qualities of humble people is that they earn their living by manual labor such as tending sheep as the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) did which shows the humility He (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) possessed.

And Allah knows best!
