Traditions from Hasan lbn Ali (Radi Allaahu Ta’ala Anhu). When he intended to walk, he would raise his feet with force and would put them down inclining forwards. He walked striding with modesty and his manner of walking gave an impression as if he was coming down a high place. When he intended to see anything on his sides, he would do so fully turning towards it (i.e. he did not cast side glances). He always looked downwards. Instead of looking up towards the sky, he preferred to look towards the ground. As a habit he would look through the corner of his eyes (i.e. due to extreme modesty, he would not cast full glance by lifting his head). He would ask his companions to walk ahead of him. Whomsoever he met, he saluted first. [Nashrut-Tib]

The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) and his companions (Radi Allahu Ta’ala’anhum) would recite Takbeer (ALLAH-o-Akbar) while going up the hill and would recite Tasbih (Al-Hamdo-Lillah) while coming down in the valley. [Zadul Ma’ad]
