I was in the company of Jarir bin Abdullah on a journey and he used to serve me though he was older than I. Jarir said, "I saw the Ansar doing a thing (i.e. showing great reverence to the Prophet (SAW)) for which I have vowed that whenever I meet any of them, I will serve him."

We were with the Prophet (SAW) (on a journey) and the only shade one could have was the shade made by one's own garment. Those who observed saum (fast) did not do any work and those who did not fast served the camels and brought the water on them and treated the sick and (wounded). So, the Prophet (SAW) said, "Today, those who were not fasting took (all) the reward."
