The Mercy Of The Merciful Prophet, PBUH


 

A Bedouin came to the Messenger Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) and told him, "Give me from what Allah gave you; but not from the wealth of your mother or from the wealth of your father." The Sahaabah (the Companions) were furious at the man and step forward to discipline him for what he said. The Messenger Allah commanded everyone to leave him.

 



Then by the hand, the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) took him home, opened his door and said, "Take what you wish and leave what you wish." The man did so and after he finished, the Messenger Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) asked him, "Have I honored you?" "Yes, by Allah," said the Bedouin. "Ash hadu an laa ilaaha illa Allah, wa ashhadu anna Muhammadar Rasul Allah."

 



When the Sahabah heard of how the man changed, the Messenger Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) taught them.

 

"Verily the example of myself, you and this Bedouin is that of a man who had his camel run away. The townspeople tried capturing the camel for him by running and shouting after the camel, only driving it further away. The man would shout, 'Leave me and my camel, I know my camel better.' Then he took some grass in his hand, ruffled it in front of the camel, until it came willingly.

 

'By Allah, had I left you to this Bedouin, you would have hit him, hurt him, he would have left without Islam and eventually have entered hellfire."
