The kind ones


Abdullah ibn Mushabbib al-Qahtāni

He who knows that Allah is Kind will grow in love, exaltation, and gratitude towards Him. Allah Almighty loves His names and those who adopt them, except those names He dislikes for His servants to assume. He is Merciful and loves those who are merciful; Generous and loves those who are generous; and Kind and loves those who are kind.

The most worthy among people of this trait are the prophets, led by Prophet Muhammad (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him). His treatment of people was full of kindness. He would never get angry for personal reasons or feel troubled due to people’s human weaknesses and defects. Moreover, he would not keep for himself anything of the worldly vanities. Rather, he would give all what he possessed, lovingly. His forbearance, benevolence, compassion, and affection encompassed people. No one associated with him except that his heart became full of love for him, due to his kindness and generosity.

One day a Bedouin urinated in a corner of the mosque. Having seen him, the Companions rushed to him while expressing their disapproval at his act. Thereupon, the Prophet (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him) said: “Do not interrupt him. Leave him.”When the Bedouin was over, the Prophet (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him) called him and said:

“It is not appropriate to use mosques for urinating or filth. Indeed, they are built for the remembrance of Allah Almighty, prayer, and the recitation of the Qur’an.”

[Narrated by Muslim]

Indeed, Allah Almighty is Kind and loves those who are kind. The Prophet (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him) is authentically reported to have said:

“Allah is Kind and loves kindness. He gives for kindness what He does not give for harshness.”

[Narrated by Muslim]

“Do not interrupt him. Leave him.”

When the Bedouin was over, the Prophet (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him) called him and said:

“It is not appropriate to use mosques for urinating or filth. Indeed, they are built for the remembrance of Allah Almighty, prayer, and the recitation of the Qur’an.”

[Narrated by Muslim]

Indeed, Allah Almighty is Kind and loves those who are kind. The Prophet (may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him) is authentically reported to have said:

“Allah is Kin d and loves kindness. He gives for kindness what He does not give for harshness.”

[Narrated by Muslim]

The most worthy of this trait among people, after the prophets, are kings and rulers, and the callers to Allah from the preachers and scholars, as well as parents. People have enough grief and concerns and they are in need for someone to console them, not someone who treats them harshly. They need mercy, compassion, care, cheerfulness, and affection.

People are in greater need for kindness than for receiving something along with harsh treatment. Those who are more entitled to your kindness are yourself, your parents, your spouse, your children, your subjects, and your co-workers and friends.
