Q.B) Write an essay on “The kindness of the Holy Prophet (ﷺ)
“The kindness of the Holy Prophet (ﷺ)”
Kindness is a trait that defines and shapes up the moral character of a person. Kindness and compassion hold a very high position among the teachings of Islam. Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H) was a very kind and compassionate person and regarded kindness and compassion as the primary traits that must be the mark of a Muslim. It has been said by Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H) “God is kind and likes kindness in all things” (Bukhari, 6601).
Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H) practiced what he taught and believed that the hardest of the hearts will accept the teachings of Islam if dealt kindly and honestly. The kindness and the compassion exhibited by our beloved Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H) affected people by heart to enter Islam in the form of groups. The kindness and compassion of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H) were by no means limited to the Muslims. In fact, it extended to every human being and every living thing. The Quran mentions his kind and gentle behavior in these words: “O Messenger of Allah! It is a great Mercy of God that you are gentle and kind towards them; for, had you been harsh and hard-hearted, they would all have broken away from you”(Quran 3:159).
There are many instances that show his kindness and gentleness. Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H) once traveled to the city of Taif in order to spread the preaching of Islam. The people of Taif treated the Holy Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H) with utter disrespect and started throwing stones at him. They continued to do so till they drove the Holy Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H) out of the city. Upon this incident, the angel Jibraeel appeared before the Holy Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H) and asked his permission to crush the ignorant people between the mountains. The Holy Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H) stopped the angel and instead raised his hands in the air and prayed to God to guide the people. It is the result of this kind act of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H) that we see that many devoted Muslims come from the valley of Taif.
The Holy Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H) was especially kind towards the poor and the weak. He would regard them as the people who are facing a tough test in their lives and would help them any way possible. Anas who was the servant of the prophet said that the Messenger of Allah never scolded him for a task that he had not done. Our beloved Holy Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) was kind not only to human beings but to all living things including animals and plants. The Beloved Prophet PBUH was kind to such an extent that he on the event of slaughtering an animal he said: “God prescribed kindness towards everything; so when you slaughter an animal, slaughter it well; when you sacrifice, make your sacrifice good. And let everyone sharpen his weapon and make it easy for his sacrificed animal.” (Muslim, 5055).
In conclusion, we can say that kindness was one of the predominant traits that made the prophet (PBUH) so special, extraordinary, and unique that he was chosen by God as a supreme example to guide mankind to ideals of happiness and perfection.
