Allah’s Messenger (Prophet)[PBUH]

We can’t disregard the humanitarian dimensions and situations of Allah’s messenger [PBUH]
which represent part and parcel of his good manners and his mercy towards all humanity alike.

he used to visit whoever fall sick of them regardless their race or religion, it has been narrated
by Anas ibn Malik[MPW], that a jewish used to serve the prophet [PBUH], and when he got ill,
the prophet [PBUH] visited him and sat next his head ,
the prophet [PBUH] said to him , convert to the Islam, the the boy looked at his father,
and his father said to him , obey Aba Al Ghaasim, so the boy converted to Islam ,
then the prophet [PBUH] praised Almighty Allah that he saved him from the fire .

Jews and Chrisitans

Allah’s messenger [PBUH] used to accept the gift from the jews if they present to him a gift
and doesn’t return it to them , as it was reported by Anas ibn Malik [MPW] ,
that a jewish woman brought a poisoned ewe to the prophet [PBUH]


so he ate from it and didn’t return it to her , he had set the most sublime and noblest
examples of forgiveness and remission of Ahl Azimah [Jews and Chrisitans] ,
and a good witness to that when the jewish woman presented to him the poisoned ewe,
the prophet [PBUH] didn’t order to poison her as she did or revenge of her
let alone killing her , because he is tolerant and kind for all humanity irrespective of
what happened to him from their part .
concerning the financial aspects he used to deal and borrow money from them ,
and when he discusses with them , he wasn’t arrogant about them,
but he used to reply to all their questions .
Talking about the humanitarian dimensions of the best human walked on the earth
and the best man who taught mankind the humanitarian manners
and values stemming from heartful human who realized life well and on top of
all His Almighty Lord who has given him insight, so the prophet ]PBUH]
was the perfect human in his humanityperfect in his law [sahreeh] ,
where he made it suits all Adam’s sons ,
he was perfect in his humanity , particularly when he deals with his wives and his children ,
perfect in his philanthropy with himself and with his sentiments , perfect n his humanity even with his enemies and his opponents .

Allah wants to lighten for you

Thus , whoever contemplate in the legislations which vame came on the tongue
of the best human of the mankind thr prophet [PBUH] , he will certainly feel at them
the philanthropic aspect wjich estimates the humanity of the Muslim,
and recognizes his ability and capacity


so the legislations have come holding the humanitarian sense in easiness and facilitation , leniencyand mercy ,
where thses appear obviously as Almighty Allah says :
( Allah wants to lighten for you [your difficulties]; and  mankind was, created weak
Ibn Katheer said, : Allah wants to lighten for you [Your difficulties]; namely in
His laws and His commands and His forbiddance and what He has prescribed to you,also said,
(man was, created weak) and suited him alleviation , for his weakness in himself ,
and impairment of his intention and his determination .
Almighty Allah means by His saying :
( Allah wants to lighten for you .[your difficulties] , to facilitate you .
Almighty Allah also says in surat Al hajj[the pilgrimage]:
( And He has not placed upon you in the religion any difficulty) [78] .
Therefore the philanthropy of the prophet [PBUH] appears in his selection the easiest
and the most facilitated unless it is a sin , as Aaishah [MPW] said, in the hadeeth which she previously mentioned it ,

the prophet [PBUH]

where the prophet [PBUH] adopted the applied reality and established to his nation
the principle of easiness and facilitation that accords with the Muslim’s humanity ,
and when he saw an extended rope he ordered to untie it m and enjoined
his nation no to constrain
from work except that can stand , it was, narrated about Anas ibn Malik ,
that three groups came to to the houses of the wives of the prophet [PBUH] ,
they were asking about the worship of the prophet [PBUH] ,
and when they were, told as if they had said it , so they said :
where are we from the prophet [PBUH] It has been forgiven  for him what preceded of his sin and what will follow ,
one of them said, as for me , I pray the night ever , and other said, I fast forever and
I donot break my fast , and pther said , I quit women, I never marry them, then Allah’s messengercame to them ,
and said : (you are who said , such and such ?! But Allah, I’m the most fearing to Allah and the most pious to him ,
however I fast and I breakfast, and I pray and I sleep, and I marry women , whoever deires my sunnah is not from me)
