As for the news about his generosity, they are plenty; among them is what Imam Muslim related from the route of Anas that he said: “The Messenger of Allah sallallahu ^alayhi wa sallam used to give anything that would benefit Islam if he was to be asked. Once a man came to him asking for some support, the Prophet sallallahu ^alayhi wa sallam gave him sheep which were grazing between two mountains.
That man went to his people and said: “O people embrace Islam, for Muhammad gives as much as the one who does not fear poverty.”
As for his humbleness, it was related by al-Bayhaqiyy, at-Tirmidhiyy, and Ibn Majah from the route of ^Abdullah who said: The Prophet sallallahu ^alayhi wa sallam lay down on a mat, which left some marks on his skin. So I began stroking my hand over his skin so that the marks would disappear and said: O Messenger of Allah, please give us permission to put something on the floor for you to sleep on without leaving such marks on your body?
The Prophet replied: “Keep the worldly pleasures away from me, and keep me away from them, for the lifespan of one in this world goes so fast that it is similar to the time a riding person would spend to rest in a shade under a tree after which he has to leave and continue his journey.”
He, may Allah raise his rank, was attributed with good traits such as truthfulness, honesty, keeping ties with his kin, chastity, generosity, bravery, and obeying Allah in all instances; moments; and with every breath. This was along with splendid eloquence, complete advice, compassion and mercy, benevolence, and treating the poor, the orphans, the widows, and the weak ones kindly. Muhammad, may Allah raise his rank, is the most humble human; he looked after the needy; attended their funerals and visited the sick. The Prophet was very handsome and of a great lineage.
In the end we sincerely ask Allah to guide us to implementing the praised manners that Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him taught us and to grant us humbleness, sincerity, and devotion to the religion. Amin.
