Hadith & Seerah, The Noble Traits of His Character, The Ways of the Prophet (SAWS) / Sunday, August 17th, 2008

He was extremely gentle and never addressed anyone harshly, much less abused or cursed him or her. He treated even the unbeliever and the enemy courteously in the hope of winning them over: and overlooked their apparent rudeness. Inside his house he would do domestic work. Covering himself with his wrap he would take care not to expose his hands and feet (Probably when he was sitting). His kind disposition in impartiality were general for everybody. His anger would never get the better of him.

He did not harbor anything about his companions in his heart (against what he professed). He was not habituated to cast shy looks. As such the question of having any ill will in the heart does not arise.

Of all the ill habits the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) abhorred the most was untruthfulness. [Baihaqui, Ibn Sa’d]
