Bukhari had one very special attribute which was to put everyone's happiness before his own. One incident which proves this is when Bukahri's slave-girl was entering the room in which Bukhari was seated however, approaching the door she stumbled; causing Bukhari to warn, "Be careful as to where you are walking." The slave-girl replied haughtily "How shall I walk when there is no place?" Upon hearing this Bukhari threw up his hands and cheered, "I have now given you the freedom to walk where you wish as of now you are freed." Someone later questioned Bukhari if he had reacted out of anger, however, he replied "No, I have just pleased myself with my conduct."
Bukhari always took notice of all things little which could help him earn the happiness of Allah (SWT). There is one such incident where there was a gathering. A man from within the crowd found a feather within his beard which he threw on the floor. Bukhari followed the mans action and looking around to make sure no-one was looking and then bent in order to pick it up and placed it in his pocket. After leaving the mosque he threw it away aware of the fact that he had just done something in order to help keep the mosque clean.
It was here that he spent the month of Ramadaan and in the month of Shawwaal headed towards Samarqand, where death found him whilst he was travelling. Bukhari died in the month of Shawwaal 256 A.H., at the age of 62. (To Allah we belong and to Him we shall return.)
