The Prophet of Mercy …..(4)

One day Prophet Muhammad (Salallahu Alaihi Wasallam) was going somewhere at noon and it was too hot in the desert when He (Salallahu Alaihi Wasallam) saw an old woman carrying her luggage on her head. Prophet Muhammad (Salallahu Alaihi Wasallam) helped her and took the luggage from the woman and carried it for her..

Prophet Muhammad (Salallahu Alaihi Wasallam) asked the woman that where she was going and why? She said that I am leaving this town as I have heard that a magician named Muhammad (Salallahu Alaihi Wasallam) is in town.


As Holy Prophet Muhammad (Salallahu Alaihi Wasallam) was very patient and kind, He (Salallahu Alaihi Wasallam) didn’t say a word and kept listening. The old lady kept complaining that why she was leaving the town.

In short the basic reason of her to leave the town was her misconception about Muhammad (Salallahu Alaihi Wasallam), who was walking beside her and she didn’t knew it.


While walking with the Holy Prophet (peace be upon Him), that old women noticed that this young man have a brightness on his smiling and humble face. And she also noticed that His sweat is perfumed. She was very impressed. 


When they reached the destination, Muhammad (Salallahu Alaihi Wasallam) put down the bag and was about to leave when the old woman said,”O, kind person! At least tell me your name!”. Prophet Muhammad (Salallahu Alaihi Wasallam) replied,”I am the person because of whom you left the town.”The old lady was amazed to listen that and said that such a kind, helping and true person can never be wrong and therefore she also accepted Islam..
