Appreciating the Character and Mannerism of Prophet Muhammad s.a.w.

  • The Prophet s.a.w. would often remind his people not to fall prey to their desires (nafs) and anger. In instances when we are tested by God and find ourselves overwhelmed with the impulse to vent our anger and frustration, the Prophet s.a.w. taught us the virtue of sabr (patience).
  • Islam places emphasis on the importance of a mukmin to refrain himself from submitting to his desires, emotions and anger. When faced with challenges, Islam calls for composure, and encourages people to think rationally and work towards solutions. Islam also reminds us that decisions made in haste or in anger will never reap fruitful results, neither will they have barakah in them.
