Love the poor; bring them near to you and God will bring you near to Him on the Day of Resurrection".

The Holy Quran testifies to it in these words: "0 Muhammad, you will, perhaps, consume yourself with grief because the people do not believe" Quran In Surah Kahf, we read: "Well, 0 Muhammad, it may be that you will kill yourself for their sake out of sorrow if they do not believe in this Message. And Surah Fatir says: " So let not your life be consumed in grief for their sake. He took a great interest in the welfare of all people and had great compassion for people in trouble.
The Prophet Muhammad imitated the attributes of God par excellence and translated them into practice in the highest form possible for man. Kindness is an attribute of Allah, which has no limits. It is extensive and encompasses all things and all beings without discrimination. Likewise was the kindness of the Prophet. He extended it to all beings, both animate and inanimate and benefited all without measure. The Quranic words for the Prophet's kindness, ra'ufun rahirn Quran are very intensive and comprehensive in meaning and convey the true nature and extent of the Prophet's kindness to people.
The Prophet said: "One of the finest acts of kindness is for a man to treat his fathers' friends in a kindly way after he has departed" Abu dawud, The issue of treating friends well was also extended to include relations: "He who wishes to have his provision enlarged and his term of life prolonged should treat his relatives well" Bukhari, He emphasized on this matter because he deeply held the view that "Only kindness prolongs life, and a person is deprived of provisions for the faults he commits" Ibn Majah. Bahz b. Hakim, on his father's authority, said that his grandfather told him that he had asked Allah's Messenger to whom he should show kindness and that the Prophet had replied: "Your mother.
He dwelled on the issue of treating orphans humanely as he stated that "The best house among the Muslims is one which contains an orphan who is well treated, and the worst house among the Muslims is one which contains an orphan who is badly treated" Ibn Majah, This means that the Prophet cautioned his followers against general maltreatment of anyone regardless of his status. By extending good treatment from friends to relatives and now to neighbors, Prophet Muhammad was intent in making all humans interdependent as he emphasized in the following words: "All creatures are Allah's dependants, and those dearest to God are the ones who treat His dependants kindly" Rahman, VOL VIII, p.
He emphasized the kind treatment of women again and again in his speeches:. Treat women kindly, since they are your helpers;. Your right is that they shall not allow anyone you dislike to enter your bed or your home, and their right is that you should treat them well.
Once a number of women complained to the Prophet's wives about their ill-treatment by their husbands. On hearing of this, the Prophet said: "Such persons among you are not good persons.
1. One Who is Giving and Munificent Bountiful
This condemnation by the Prophet himself was an indication that no one will be accepted before God who, while on earth, decided to be unkind to women. Another person said to the Prophet: "0 Messenger of Allah! My relatives are such that although I cooperate with them, they cut me off; I am kind to them but they ill treat me. This was not only a way of bringing comfort to the mind of the worried person but one of the communicative techniques of the Prophet to assure who ever found himself in that situation to look up to God to be consoled and protected.
So it was pointless to preach vengeance to this kind of people suffering from this similar fate. Indeed, Prophet Muhammad was nothing short of a competent counselor. He was always counseling people to be goodhearted regardless of their sex, age or gender. Once Asma bint Abu Bakr's mother, who was still an unbeliever, came to see her in Madinah.

Morality in Islam
There he stood before the companions and announced that he was now a Muslim and said the testimony of faith. Thumama had been inspired by the kindness shown to him by the Prophet, and this is one of the strongest indications of what led him to Islam. Although this plot was foiled by the Prophet himself, Safwan nevertheless continued his mission against Islam and the Muslims.
This came as a total surprise to Safwan who had already made plans to flee Makkah, fearing persecution for his crimes. One month later, following the Battle of Hunayn, the Prophet generously gifted Safwan with an entire valley of camels as a reward for his help in providing weaponry. Despite the fact Safwan was not a Muslim at the time, he could not believe the generosity the Prophet had just shown him and thus almost immediately accepted Islam. He was responsible for leading many armies against the Prophet and the Muslims, including many campaigns that resulted in the persecution of Muslims.
Wahshi was responsible for spearing and killing the beloved uncle of the Prophet Muhammad, Hamza Ibn Abi Talib, during the Battle of Uhud This killing took place at a time where Hamza was a great support to the Muslims and Islam.
