“And We have not sent you except as a mercy to mankind” (Surah Al-Anbiyah 21:107) Bilal Assaad speaks about the compassion and mercy of Prophet Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi wasallam – peace be upon him) towards the world. Not only to mankind, but all of creation. The speaker shares stories and examples from the life of the Prophet (pbuh) of how he was compassionate towards different beings in his life. How he showed compassion towards all creatures, human beings, and even the jinn. His compassion towards women and children, his wifes, his sons and daughters, and the sons and daughters of all believers. The poor and the old, the sick and the sad, the animals, and the insects even. How he showed compassions towards even the enemies of Islam.
Al-Harith bin Hisham asked Allah’s Apostle “O Allah’s Apostle! How is the Divine Inspiration revealed to you?” Allah’s Apostle replied, “Sometimes it is (revealed) like the ringing of a bell, this form of Inspiration is the hardest of all and then this state passes ‘ off after I have grasped what is inspired. Sometimes the Angel comes in the form of a man and talks to me and I grasp whatever he says.” ‘Aisha added: Verily I saw the Prophet being inspired Divinely on a very cold day and noticed the Sweat dropping from his forehead (as the Inspiration was over). — Narrated ‘Aisha (the mother of the faithful believers), Sahih Bukhari Volume 1, Book of Revelation, Hadith No. 2
