The Prophet Muhammad taught love, kindness and compassion to his people, and was seen to be the most loving, kind, and compassionate of all of them. The Qur’an mentions his kind and gentle behavior in these words: “O Messenger of Allah! It is a great Mercy of Allah that you are gentle and kind towards them; for, had you been harsh and hard¬hearted, they would all have broken away from you” (Qur’an 3:159). There are many instances that show his kindness and gentleness, especially to the weak and the poor. Anas, his famous servant, said: “I served Allah’s Messenger for ten years and he never said to me, ‘Shame’ or ‘Why did you do such-and-such a thing?’ or ‘Why did you not do such-and-such a thing?’” (Bukhari, 2038).
