Humility : Shaykh Hamza Yusuf about the one of the characters of Imam Al-Haddad

Here is a story narrated by Shaykh Hamza Yusuf about the one of the characters of Imam Al-Haddad.
.
After Fajr, there was a crowd gather around to meet Imam Al-Haddad, and Imam greeted each and everyone of them and shook their hands. Since there was a large crowd, it took some time to complete the process.
.
A man said to Imam Al-Haddad, “Wouldn’t be enough if you just would wave to all them?” Imam Al-Haddad ask “Why were the people gather here to see me?”. “Because you are an auliya” and Imam Al-Haddad said, “Shouldn’t I think the same about them?”

There is no good in a companion that doesn’t see in you what you see in him.
