What Would Prophet Muhammad (saw) Do? A Reflection on Kindness

What Would Prophet Muhammad (saw) Do? A Reflection on Kindness
Publication Note: This month we are sharing an assortment of reflections about the Prophet Muhammad (saw), his encounters, attributes and exercises learned. We'd love to hear yours in the remarks beneath!)

One thing has consistently stood apart to me about the Prophet Muhammad (saw), and that is his treatment of others paying little mind to how they treated him. My preferred story is of the more established, non-Muslim lady who might get up each morning and toss trash and creature digestive organs on his front doorstep. She kept on doing this each morning until one day, she halted.

Despite all the antagonistic vibe she indicated him, the Prophet (saw) turned out to be promptly stressed over her and went to keep an eye on her. At the point when he went to see her, he saw that she was debilitated, which is the reason she didn't badger him that morning. She was stunned at his consideration and earnestness in spite of all that she had done to him and in the long run, the lady changed over to Islam in view of his generosity.

This is my preferred story since it reminds us to be benevolent to each other each and every day – to not hold feelings of resentment against others and to not let any other individual's negative conduct influence our character.

There is such a great amount of straightforwardness in being benevolent. It can mean a grin that you share with an outsider or getting a bit of litter so a creature doesn't endeavor to eat it and afterward stifle, or moving a pen from the floor so nobody slips and falls as a result of it. We have such a significant number of chances to play out this ground-breaking sunnah regularly and in our own abilities.

Consideration is probably the best temperance we can have, and we think little of the intensity of graciousness constantly. With all the present scorn on the planet and individuals hopping to make hurt other people who made mischief them, it just exacerbates the situation and takes out any open door for adoration. As platitude as it might sound, how about we center around spreading love, and not abhor – not on the grounds that it's the "cool" activity, but since it's correct.

The Prophet (saw) has instructed us that "Allah (S) has saved an exceptional prize for the individuals who are benevolent and delicate."

What's more, Aisha detailed that the Messenger of Allah, harmony and favors arrive, stated:

يَا عَائِشَةُ إِنَّ اللَّهَ رَفِيقٌ يُحِبُّ الرِّفْقَ وَيُعْطِي عَلَى الرِّفْقِ مَا لَا يُعْطِي عَلَى الْعُنْفِ وَمَا لَا يُعْطِي عَلَى مَا سِوَاهُ

O Aisha, Allah is delicate and He adores tenderness, and He awards for delicacy what isn't allowed for cruelty, and He doesn't compensate whatever else like it. (Source: Sahih Muslim, 2593; Grade: Sahih)

"He doesn't remunerate something else like it." Can you envision? Allah (S) gives prizes in wealth, and these are the most delightful and endless prizes that our psyches can't in any way, shape or form even procedure. So for carrying on with graciousness and delicacy, you are compensated with something separated from the rest, aside from the "customary" rewards – something much progressively extraordinary, SubhanAllah!

Prophet Muhammad (saw) is the ideal case of this – being a sort and delicate soul, and that is something I've constantly respected about him. When I'm at a misfortune for what to do or how to react to somebody who has hurt me, I attempt to recollect the best model humankind has ever observed, and I contemplate internally, What might Prophet Muhammad (saw) do?
