PROPHET'S PATIENCE

THROUGHOUT the period of his mission, Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) experienced all types of difficulties. Deniers and polytheists from among his own people insulted him most terribly, even calling him a magician or a mad man.

Others wanted to kill him and even schemed to do so. Despite all that, the Prophet (peace be upon him) tried to teach people of all backgrounds and cultures about the Qur an, and therefore about proper morality and good behavior.

As Allah revealed in the verses of the Qur an, some people had not the slightest idea of the basics of good manners, for which reason it never entered their minds that they might appall someone who possessed superior morality.

The Prophet (peace be upon him) displayed the greatest patience in these circumstances, turning to Allah and asking for His help in all situations and encouraging the believers toward patience and submission.

Believers must remember the kind of things Allah s Messenger (peace be upon him) was patient for, and take him as a model when dealing with their own difficulties. Those who despair at the slightest problem, who are unable to bear the smallest objection, who stop preaching the religion of Allah, or who lose hope when their business dealings go wrong, must be aware that such behavior is incompatible with Allah s Holy Book and the sayings and deeds of the Prophet (peace be upon him).

Believers must always be patient, take Allah as their helper and give thanks to Him, adopt the superior morality of the Prophet (peace be upon him), and hope for the mercy, compassion and Paradise of our Lord.

The Prophet (peace be upon him) never forced those around him to accept the religion, nor imposed conditions on them. Instead he always used pleasantest ways to tell them about it.

The Prophet (peace be upon him) always supported the community of the faithful with his strong conscience, and he was a benefactor to them at all times. On account of these traits, the Prophet (peace be upon him) is described in many verses as your companion.
(Saba 34:46: An-Najm 53:2, At-Takwir 81:22)

The Prophet s (peace be upon him) human love, kind thought, and compassion, which turned those around him to true religion and warmed their hearts to faith, is that superior morality which all Muslims should seek to emulate.
