What Does It Mean to Be Humble?

Abdullah al Tustari said that Shaytaan can’t come near the one whose heart is humble. Another scholar mentioned that humility is to restrain your eyes.

The scholars of the past agreed that humility is in the heart and not with a downcast appearance, lowered gaze and slumped shoulders.

It has also been said humility is a feebleness that enters one’s heart when one contemplates one’s Lord.
