His love, care and concern was for all of humanity. There are many evidences that show the merciful character of Prophet Muhammad s.a.w. and his love for others.
  • In his interactions with his wife and children, Rasulullah s.a.w. was merciful toward them by joking in a friendly manner, giving gentle advice and helping out his wife and children at home. If the Prophet s.a.w. who was extremely busy with many responsibilities was still able to help his wife with household duties. Let us reflect upon the noble and beautiful character of Rasulullah s.a.w. that attracted many to Islam. His face calms those who see it, his gentle and kind demeanour encourages others to emulate him. Such was his admirable conduct.
  • If we are able to appreciate and understand the noble and merciful akhlak of Rasulullah s.a.w., then our lives will be more beautiful for us as well as those around us. We are definitely nowhere close to the Prophet s.a.w. But we should be grateful to Allah s.w.t. for the blessing of being part of the ummah of Rasulullah s.a.w., hence we should strive to spread mercy as reflected by our beloved messenger.
