Friday Sermon 7 February 2003.
Surely a Messenger has come unto you from among yourselves who is distressed by your suffering for he is concertedly ardent and deeply desirous towards you and compassionate and merciful towards the believers. (The Holy Quran. al-Taubah [The Repentance]: 128). This verse's narrates the singularly compassionate nature of the Holy Prophet ?. The Holy Prophet ? did not ever utter a harsh word, would never frown, and in fact was always smiling and cheerful. With specific reference to the verse wherein chastising women is mentioned: Men are guardians over women because Allah has made some of them excel others and because the men spend of their wealth. So virtuous women are obedient and safeguard the secrets with Allah's help. And admonish those of them on whose part you apprehend negligence. And leave them alone in their beds so as to chastise them. Then if they obey you seek no pretext against them. Surely Allah is the High the Great. (The Holy Quran. Al Nisa [The Women]. 35). There is none who understood and adhered to The Holy Quran as much as the Holy Prophet ?. From his blessed life we notice that he did not ever chastise his wives, therein is a lesson for all Muslims to be extremely heedful of never abusing this particular Quranic injunction while dealing with their wives. The Holy Prophet ? treated all his servants, wives, children, companions, rich and the poor, without any discrimination, with mercy and in a soft tone of voice. He dealt with humbleness and moderation. He would help out with all household chores, he did not make any distinction between the rich or the poor, he was constantly conscious of the fear of Allah but did not possess an iota of cynicism or tedium. Once during an expedition the Holy Prophet ? [involuntarily] gently struck someone who had accidentally trod on him. Later the Holy Prophet ? summoned that person and gave him 80 goats by way of atonement for having gently struck him. The subject of kindness can be further elaborated by the Holy Prophet's (peace and blessings be on him) particular love for children, his customary caressing of children's cheeks and cuddling them, gentle playfulness, and a most expressive affection, particularly with his grandchildren. At times he would carry a grandchild while offering his Salat [Ritual Prayer], only putting them down during prostration, once he remained in the posture of prostration for a considerably long time because his grandson had climbed on his back and the Holy Prophet ? let the child take its time to move away. Many incidences from the life of the Promised Messiah (on whom be peace) illustrate his most convalescent nature, in particular with children. Children would feel most comfortable in the company of the Promised Messiah (on whom be peace) narrating innocent stories to him, that he would unceasingly respond to their incessant questioning. The Promised Messiah (on whom be peace) exhibited remarkable patience when disturbed by his children while he would be involved in his most demanding commitments. In return his prayers were granted acceptance.
