In the Name of Allah, the Merciful, the Compassionate.
“There is definitely an excellent example in the Messenger of Allah for the one who fears Allah and the Last Day, and who remembers Allah abundantly.” (al-Ahzaab, verse 21)
Ahadeeth Describing Rasulullah SAW
(Based on the description of Rasulullah SAW by Sayyidina Hind bin Abi Haalah r.a to Sayyidina Hassan bin ‘Ali r.a)
The Manners of Rasulullah SAW When Walking
“He lifted his feet well off the ground and leaned forward when he walked. He put his steps down lightly and walked briskly, taking long strides as he went along. He walked as if he was descending from a high place. When he turned to someone, he turned his entire body towards the person. He kept his gazes lowered and would more often be looking down than up. (Out of modesty) He never looked at a person straight in the face, always walked behind his companions and greeted whoever he met before they greeted him.”
The Manners of Rasulullah SAW When Talking
“Rasulullah SAW always remained grieved (concerning to Aakhirah), was forever concerned (for the plight of his Ummah) and had no rest. He remained silent for long periods and would speak only when necessary. From beginning to end of his speech was complete (he did not speak vaguely) and spoke most comprehensively (without wasting words). His words were distinct and conclusive with neither excess nor shortage (leaving no room for ambiguity). He spoke kindly without being harsh towards anyone or embarrassing anyone. Regardless of how insignificant they seemed, he always held favours in high esteem without belittling them or praising them excessively (so that no greed is shown).”
When did Rasulullah SAW Become Angry?
“When the truth is being opposed, nothing could stem his anger until the truth was avenged.” Another narration states: “Matters relating to this world never made him angry. However, whenever the truth (matters of Deen) met opposition, nothing and no one could stem his anger until the truth was avenged. He never become angry for personal reasons and never took revenge for anything affecting his personal life.”
(Reported by at-Tirmidhi, Hakim, Bayhaqi, Ruyani, at-Tabraani and Ibn Asaakir)
