On the authority of ‘Abdullaah Ibn ash-Shikh-kheer (may Allaah be pleased with him), the Prophet (may Allaah raise his rank and grant him peace) was addressed, “You are our say-yid!” He (may Allaah raise his rank and grant him peace) replied:

“As-Say-yid is Allaah, the Blessed and Exalted.”

Narrated Abdullah ibn ash-Shikhkhir:

I went with a deputation of Banu Amir to the apostle of Allah (ﷺ), and we said: You are our lord (sayyid). To this he replied: The lord is Allah, the Blessed and Exalted. Then we said: And the one of us most endowed with excellence and superiority. To this he replied: Say what you have to say, or part of what you have to say, and do not let the devil make you his agents.

حَدَّثَنَا مُسَدَّدٌ، حَدَّثَنَا بِشْرٌ، – يَعْنِي ابْنَ الْمُفَضَّلِ – حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو مَسْلَمَةَ، سَعِيدُ بْنُ يَزِيدَ عَنْ أَبِي نَضْرَةَ، عَنْ مُطَرِّفٍ، قَالَ قَالَ أَبِي انْطَلَقْتُ فِي وَفْدِ بَنِي عَامِرٍ إِلَى رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم فَقُلْنَا أَنْتَ سَيِّدُنَا ‏.‏ فَقَالَ ‏”‏ السَّيِّدُ اللَّهُ تَبَارَكَ وَتَعَالَى ‏”‏ ‏.‏ قُلْنَا وَأَفْضَلُنَا فَضْلاً وَأَعْظَمُنَا طَوْلاً ‏.‏ فَقَالَ ‏”‏ قُولُوا بِقَوْلِكُمْ أَوْ بَعْضِ قَوْلِكُمْ وَلاَ يَسْتَجْرِيَنَّكُمُ الشَّيْطَانُ‏”‏‏.‏
