The Prophet’s -sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam- Compassion for his Ummah

 

Allaah Ta’ala said: <>

On the authority of Abu Musa al-Ashaari on the authority of the Prophet -sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam- who said: ‘My example and the example of what I have been sent with is that of a man who came to some people and said, ‘O people! I have seen the army with my own eyes, and I am the clear Warner; so protect yourselves!’ Then a group of his people obeyed him and fled proceeding slowly, so they were saved. Another group of them disbelieved him and stayed at their place until the morning when the army came upon them, and destroyed them and ruined them. So this is the example of the one who obeys me and follows what I have brought (the Qur’aan and the Sunnah), and the example of the one who disobeys me and disbelieves in the truth I have brought.’

Collected by Bukhari and Muslim

 

On the authority of Abu Huraira -Radi Allaahu anhu-who said: that the Messenger of Allaah -sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam- said:

‘Indeed my example and the example of my Ummah is like a man who lit a fire, and moths and insects began to fall into it.  So I am holding on to the waist of your waist wrapper while you are rushing into it.’

[in another narration: so that is my example and your example while I take hold onto the waist of your waist wrapper from the fire, saying keep away from the fire, keep away from the fire you are overcoming me and rushing into it.’

They said: ‘Yes.’

Thereupon the Bedouins said: ‘We swear by Allaah that we do not kiss our children.’

Allaah’s Messenger -sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam- said: ‘Then what can I do if Allaah has deprived you of mercy?’

‘He who does not show mercy, no mercy will be shown to him.’
