2- THE MANNERS AND MORALS OF MUHAMMAD Article(s)
1. Introduction to the manners and morals of Muhammad
"He was of medium build, closer to being tall. His skin was extremely white, his beard was black, his mouth was pleasant, his eyebrows were long, and his shoulders were wide"
2. With God
"My comfort has been placed in prayer"
3. With Life
Muhammad (pbuh) himself could have been the most wealthy man in the history of Arabia, however, he preferred to live simply and use his wealth in that which pleased God.
4. With People
He would joke with his companions, sit and talk with them, play with their children and sit them on his knee. He would respond to the call of the free man or the slave, or the young girl or the poor. He would visit the sick on the opposite end of the city and he would attend their funerals. He would accept the people's apologies and their excuses, and he was the most humble among them.
5. With His Family and Children
"He was in the service of his family until it was time for prayer, at which time he would go and pray"
6. Generosity, Clemency and Conduct
"Allah's Messenger (pbuh) neither spoke in an insulting manner nor did he ever speak evil intentionally. He used to say, 'The most beloved to me among you is the one who has the best character and manners.'"
7. With Parents
AbuHurayrah narrated that a man came to Allah's Messenger (pbuh) and said, "O Allah's Messenger! Who is the most deserving person of my good companionship?" The Prophet (pbuh) said, "Your mother." The man said, "Who is next?" The Prophet (pbuh) said, "Your mother." The man said, "Who is next?" The Prophet (pbuh) said, "Your mother." The man asked for the fourth time, "Who is next?" The Prophet (pbuh) said, "Your father."

"Do not over-praise me as the Christians over-praised [Jesus] the son of Mary. For I am only His servant, so say: 'Allah's servant and messenger' "
9. His Bravery and Bashfulness
"The Messenger of Allah was the best of mankind, and the most generous among mankind, and the bravest among mankind. The citizens of Al-Madinah awoke in a panic one night [to a sound], so they rode out towards the sound. On their way they met the Messenger of Allah (pbuh) returning, having beat them to the sound, saying: 'Do not worry, do not worry' and he was riding a horse of Abi-Talha with no saddle (in his hurry to reach that sound), around his neck hung his sword."
10. General Mercy
They said, 'O Messenger of Allah, are we rewarded for taking care of beasts?' He said, 'There is a reward [for you] in every creature with a moist liver.'"
