How a master should behave

Anas said:

the Messenger of Allah (saws ) was one of the best of men in character. One day he sent me to do something, and I said: I (anas ) swore by Allah (swt ) that I would not go. But in my heart I felt that I should go to do what the Prophet of Allah (saws ) had commanded me; so I went out and came upon some boys who were playing in the street. All of a sudden the Messenger of Allah (saws ) who had come up behind caught me by the back of the neck, and when I looked at him he was laughing. He said: Go where I ordered you, little Anas. I replied: Yes, I am going, Apostle of Allah! Anas said: I swear by Allah, I served him for seven or nine years, and he never said to me about a thing which I had done: Why did you do such and such? Nor about a thing which I left: why did not do such and such?

Narrated Anas ibn Malik:

I served the Prophet (saws) at Medina for ten years. I was a boy. Every work that I did was not according to the desire of my master, but he (Prophet pbuh) never said to me: Fie, nor did he say to me: Why did you do this? or Why did you not do this?
