C.E. (Common Era), started his
mission of preaching the religion of
Truth, Islam (submission to One God

Muhammad (peace be upon him) to
achieve such incredible perfection.

But he was a man with a noble mission, which was
to unite humanity on the worship of ONE and

honest and upright living based on the commands
He always described himself as, 'A Servant and
Messenger of God' and so indeed every action of

The Forbiddance of Anger
On the authority of Abu Hurairah (radiAllaahu anhu),
That a man said to the Prophet sallAllaahu alayhi wa
so he (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said :
Do not become angry.
The man repeated [his request for counsel] several

Do not become angry.
[al-Bukhaaree and Muslim]
The author of "al-Ifsaah min al-Jaa'iz" said that the
Prophet sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam recognised in
this man considerable anger, so he singled out for him
this particular advice.
And the Prophet sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam has
praised the one who is able to control himself at
the time of anger,
and has said
"The powerful man is not the one who is able
to wrestle, but the powerful man is the one
who is able to control himself at the time of

Forgiveness of the Ignorant
Ten years after receiving his mission from his Lord, the
Prophet (peace be upon him ) set out towards At-Ta‟if,
about 60 kilometres from Makkah, in the company of
his freed slave Zaid bin Haritha inviting people to
But contrary to his expectations, the general atmosphere
was terribly hostile. He approached the family of
„Umair, who were reckoned amongst the nobility of the
town. But, to his disappointment, all of them turned
deaf ear to his message and used abusive language as
regards the noble cause he had been striving for.
For ten days he stayed there delivering his
message to several people, one after
another, but all to no purpose. Stirred up to
hasten the departure of the unwelcome
The people hooted him through the alley-ways, pelted him
with stones and obliged him to flee from the city
pursued by a relentless rabble.
Blood flowed down both his legs; and Zaid, endeavouring to
shield him, was wounded in the head.
The mob did not desist until they had chased him two or
three miles across the sandy plains to the foot of the
There, wearied and exhausted, he took refuge in one of the
numerous orchards, and rested against the wall of a
At a time when the whole world seemed to have turned
against him, Muhammad (peace be upon him ) turned to
his Lord and betook himself to prayer.
Seeing him in this helpless situation, Rabi„a‟s
two sons, wealthy Makkans, were moved on
grounds of kinship and compassion, and
sent to him one of their Christian servants
with a tray of grapes.
The Prophet ( peace be upon him) accepted
the fruit with pious invocation: "In the
Name of the Allâh."
The Christian servant „Addas was greatly
impressed by these words and said: "These
are words which people in this land do not

him whence he came and what religion he

come from Nineveh."
The Prophet ( peace be upon him ) then
"You belong to the city of the righteous
Jonah, son of Matta."
„Addas asked him anxiously if he knew
anything about Jonah.
The Prophet ( peace be upon him )
"He is my brother. He was a Prophet and
so am I"
Thereupon „Addas paid homage to Muhammad
(peace be upon him ) and kissed his hands.
His masters admonished him at this act but he
replied: "None on the earth is better than he
He has revealed to me a truth which only a
Prophet can do."
They again reprimanded him and said:
"We forewarn you against the consequences of
abandoning the faith of your forefathers. The
religion which you profess is far better than
the one you feel inclined to."
Heart-broken and depressed,
Muhammad ( peace be upon him )
set out on the way back to Makkah.
When he reached Qarn Al-Manazil,
Prophet muhammad descriped what happened:
” I looked up and saw a cloud casting its shade on
