In the Name of God, Most Compassionate, Most Caring

A Selection of Accounts of Muhammad, Messenger of God
(may God’s peace and blessings be upon him)

From Abu Hurayrah. The Messenger of God said: “When God created the creation, God inscribed upon the Throne, ‘My compassion overpowers My wrath.’” (Bukhari 9:501)

From ‘Umar ibn al-Khattab. Some prisoners were brought to the Messenger of God. Among them was a woman, searching. When she found a child among the prisoners, she took hold of it, pressed it against her chest, and provided it suck. Thereupon the Messenger of God said, “Do you think this woman could ever manage to throw her child into the fire?” We said, “By God, so far as it lies in her power, she would never throw her child into the fire!” The Messenger of God said, “God has more compassion for God’s servants than this woman does for her child.” (Muslim 37:6635)

From Jabir ibn `Abdullah. One day the Messenger of God picked up his grandson and kissed him while al-Aqra’ ibn Habis at-Tamim was sitting by him. “I have ten children,” said al-Aqra’, “and I have never kissed any of them.” The Messenger of God cast a glance at him. “If someone shows no compassion to people,” he remarked, “God will show no compassion to him.” (Muslim 30:5737)

The Messenger of God said:All people belong to God’s family, and God favors best those who are most useful to God’s family.” ((Jameh Saghir, Konuz al-Haqayeq)

From Abu Hurayrah. The Messenger of God said: “There is a reward for serving any living thing.” (Bukhari 8:38 )

The Messenger of God said:The cure for hard-heartedness is to put an affectionate hand on the head of orphans and to feed the poor. (Mishkat al-Masabih)

From Humayd ibn `Abd ar-Rahman ibn Awf.A man came to the Messenger of God and said, “Messenger of God, teach me some words that I can live by. Do not make them too much for me, lest I forget.” The Messenger of God said, “Do not be angry.” (Al-Muwatta 47.11)

From Abu Hurayrah. The Messenger of God said: “A strong person is not the person who throws his adversaries to the ground. A strong person is the one who contains himself when he is angry.” (Al-Muwatta 47.12)

From Abu Darda’. The Messenger of God said: “No one will suffer any bodily injury and forgive it without God raising him a degree for it and removing a sin from him.” (Tirmidhi 3480)

The Messenger of God said:God informed Prophet Moses (peace be upon him) that of all God’s servants, the dearest to God was he who was strong enough to take revenge and yet forgives. (Mishkat al-Masabih; Bayhaqi)

Through Ahmad, from Abu Darda’.The Messenger of God was delivering a sermon. He said, “Whoever fears standing before his Sustainer shall have two paradises.” Abu Darda’ asked, “Even if he commits fornication and theft, Messenger of God?” The Messenger of God repeated, “Whoever fears standing before his Sustainer shall have two paradises.” Abu Darda’ asked a second time, “Even if he commits fornication and theft, Messenger of God?” The Messenger of God said a third time, “Whoever who fears standing before his Sustainer shall have two paradises.” Abu Darda’ asked a third time, “Even if he commits fornication and theft, Messenger of God?” And he replied, “Even in spite of Abu Darda’!'” (Tirmidhi 2369)

From Muadh ibn Jabal.“Rejoice! I heard the Messenger of God say, ‘God, the Blessed and Exalted, said, “My love is due to those who love each other in Me, and those who sit with each other in Me, and those who visit each other in Me, and those who give to each other generously in Me.”‘” (Al-Muwatta 51.15)

From `Umar. The Messenger of God said: “There are people among the servants of God who are neither prophets nor martyrs; the prophets and martyrs will envy them on the Day of Resurrection for their rank before God Most High.” People asked: “Tell us, Messenger of God, who are they?” He replied: “They are people who love one another for the spirit of God, without any mutual kinship or exchange of property. I swear by God, their faces will glow and they will stand in light. They will have no fear when the people will fear, and they will not grieve when the people will grieve. He then recited the Qur’anic verse: “Behold! Indeed, the friends of God: no fear is upon them, neither shall they grieve.” (Abu Dawud 3520)

From Abu Hurayrah.Someone urged the Messenger of God, “Call down a curse upon the idol-worshippers!” whereupon he said: “I have not been sent to curse. I have been sent as compassion.” (Muslim 6284)

  1. Brother, it is true that the prophet Muhammad was the best example. But he only delivered to us the Noble Qur’an. These are sayings attributed to him 2 centuries later. And if you read Bukhari(without bias) you’ll see him portrayed in an indecent manner. Just follow the Book of Allah and it is enough. No need for hadith/talmud etc. This is how the Jews and Christians were deceived and lost faith in the Torah. The only reason apologetics can bash on Islam are the hadiths. They are a burden, so please stop promoting them with sugar-coated verses.

    • Sayings that contradict the Holy Quran are definitely not coming from the Holy Prophet.The definitely had explained the Quran to his companions and for that matter to his followers.So the question is where do we get this explanation? because the quran is not a detailed story telling book like the bible.All the rites of performing the salaat,hajj,fast,zakat ect.are not entirely explained by the quran.So you see the ahadis that contradict the holy quran must be rejected entirely
