Error : get property of non-object

I am new to codeigniter model, i try to follow steps in docs to load all user registered in my db.

This is my model: user.php

class User extends Model {
     function user() {
         parent::Model();
     }
     function alluser() {
         $query = $this->db->query("select * from user limit 0,5"); //Line 30 error as in my IDE located in this line
         return $query->result();
     }
}

This is my controller: home.php

class home extends Controller {

function index() {

    parent::Controller();

}
function alluser() {
    $this->load->model('User');
    $result = $this->User->showusers();
    if ($result->num_rows()>0) {
        foreach ($result as $row) {
            echo "ID:".$row->userid." ".$row->userpenname."<br />";
            echo $row->userfirstname." ".$row->userlastname."<br />";
        }
      }
   }
}

it showing error:

function user() { 

       parent::Model(); 

} 

=> class name is User, construct name is User.

function User() { 

       parent::Model(); 

}

You have to load the db library first. In

autoload.php :

$autoload['libraries'] = array('database');

Also, try renaming User model class for "User_model".

It solved throung second parameter in Model load:

$this->load->model('user','User');

first parameter is the model's filename, and second it defining the name of model to be used in the controller:

function alluser() 
{
$this->load->model('User');
$result = $this->User->showusers();
}
