PROPHET Muhammad (PBUH)s HUMOUR

Muhammad (PBUH) was a very cheerful and
pleasant person. His company was neither
boring nor dull and uninteresting, like that
of ordinary religious leaders, but was full of
pleasant and delightful humour. He often joked
with his companions and laughed with them.
Abdullah ibn Al-Harith bin Jaz said that he
had seen no one more pleasant and smiling than
Muhammad(PBUH). It is reported by Abu Hurairah
that Muhammad (PBUH) used to mix with them on
familiar terms, even to the extent of enjoying
light jokes with them. Some companions asked
him, "Allah's Messenger! Do you make jokes
with us?" He replied, "I speak nothing but the
Truth." (Tirmizi)

Anas reported that once a man asked Muhammad
(PBUH) for an animal to ride. He replied that
he would give him the baby of a she-camel to
ride on. The man asked what would he do with a
she-camel baby. Muhammad (PBUH) replied, "Is
there any camel which is not born of a
she-camel?" He also reported that once an old
woman came to see the Prophet (PBUH) and asked
him to pray for her that she might go to
Paradise. He replied, "No old woman will enter
Paradise!" She was very grieved end began
crying. Muhammad (PBUH) told his companions to
tell her that the old woman would go to
Paradise but as a young girl. Auf ibn Malik
al-Ashjai reported that he went to God's
Messenger at the expedition of Tabuk, when he
was sitting in a small tent, and gave a
salutation. He resumed it, saying, "Come in."
I replied, "The whole of me, God's Messenger?"
He replied, "The whole of you," so I went in.
Jarir ibn Somura said that the Prophet (PBUH)
always welcomed him from the time he became a
Muslim and that he never saw him without a
smile.

Anas said that a man from the desert called
Zahir ibn Haroun used to bring presents to the
Prophet (PBUH) from the desert and Allah's
Messenger (PBUH) would prepare for him what he
needed when he intended to depart. The Prophet
(PBUH) used to say that Zahir was his desert
man and he was his townsman. The Prophet liked
him though he was an ugly man. One day the
Prophet (PBUH) went to him when he was selling
his goods and embraced him from behind. He
could not see who it was, so he said, "Let me
go, who is this?" But when he turned round and
saw the Prophet (PBUH), he kept his back close
against the Prophet (PBUH)'s chest. Then the
Prophet (PBUH) begun to say, "Who will buy a
slave?" He said, "O God's Messenger! By God,
you will find me to be worthless goods." The
Prophet (PBUH) replied, "But in God's Sight,
you are not worthless goods."
