His Noble Character | Part One

Bismihi Ta'ala

“And lo, Thou art of a tremendous nature.”
[Surah Qalam : 4]

Rasulullah’s (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi wasallam) character extracted from 
the Ahaadeeth of Shamaa`il Tirmizi

Hazrat Hasan (RA) says, (my younger brother) Husayn said : “I asked my father (Hazrat Ali (RA)) about the conduct of Rasulullah (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi wasallam) in his assemblies.” 
He replied:
  • ‘Rasulullah (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi wasallam)  was always happy and easy mannered.
  • There was always a smile and a sign of happiness on his blessed face.
  • He was soft-natured and when the people needed his approval, he easily gave consent.
  • He did not speak in a harsh tone nor was he stony hearted.
  • He did not shout while speaking, nor was he rude nor spoke indecently.
  • He did not seek other’s faults.
  • He never overpraised anything, nor exceeded in joking, nor was he a miser.
  • He kept away from undesirable language and did not make as if he did not hear anything.
  • If he did not agree with the next person’s wish, he did not make that person feel disheartened, nor did he promise anything to that person.
  • He completely kept himself away from three things : from arguments, pride and senseless utterances.
  • He kept people away from three things:

1.)   He did not disgrace anyone
2.)   nor insult anyone,
3.)   nor look for faults of others.

He only spoke that from which thawaab and reward was attained.
