An-Nawawi (rahimahullah) said in the book Riyadh As-Saaliheen, in the chapter “Humility ‎and lowering one’s wing to the believers”: ‎

Humility is the opposite of self-exaltation. Humility is that one does not elevate or exalt ‎himself over others by way of his knowledge, lineage, wealth, status, leadership, ‎governorship, and so on. Rather, it is obligatory to lower one’s wing to the believers. He ‎should exhibit kindness to them just as the most honorable of creation and lofty amongst ‎them before Allaah, the Messenger of Allaah (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam), used to exhibit ‎kindness to the believers, to the point that a young girl would grab him by the hand and ‎take him wherever she wanted and he would fulfill her need for her. ‎Allaah the Sublime says,

‎“And be kind and humble to the believers.” [Soorah al-Hijr 15:88]‎

And in another verse Allaah says, ‎

‎ “the believers who follow you.” [Soorah ash-Shu’araa 26:215]‎

‎ “… and lower your wing”‎
Meaning be humble. The arrogant and haughty person thinks of himself as a bird soaring ‎in the air. So he is commanded to lower his wing and come down to the believers who ‎follow the Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam). ‎
It is known that one is not to lower one’s wing to the disbeliever. Rather, one is to be ‎elevated above the disbeliever and exalted above him, placing himself in a position above ‎him. Cling to the Statement of Allaah (At-Tawheed), and the Statement of Allaah is ‎superior. Allaah said in his description of the Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) and his ‎companions,

‎ “They are severe against disbelievers, and merciful among themselves,” [Soorah al-‎Fath 48:29]‎
