Five Moral Habits of the Holy Prophet

Allah’s Messenger is reported by Imam al-Baqir (A.S) as saying:

خَمْسٌ لَسْتُ بِتَارِكِهِنَّ حَتَّى الْمَمَاتِ: لِبَاسِي الصُّوفَ، وَرُكُوبِي الْحِمَارَ مُۆكِفاً، وَأكْلِي مَعَ الْعَبِيدِ، وَخَصْفِي النَّعْلَ بِالْيَدِ، وَتَسْلِيمِي عَلَى الصِّبْيَانِ لِتَكُونَ سُنَّةً مِنْ بَعْدِي.

I will not quit five habits until the moment of my death: wearing coarse clothes, riding a mule without packsaddle, eating with the slaves, weaving footwear with my own hands, and saluting children so that it will become a tradition after me.

 

A Jew Becomes Muslim By the Holy Prophet

Imam Musa (A.S) has quoted Imam `Ali (A.S) as saying, “Allah’s Messenger owed a Jew a few Dinars, so he asked for it. The Holy Prophet said, “I can’t pay it now.”‌ The Jew said, “I will not leave you until you pay my money.”‌ The Holy Prophet said, “Then I will sit beside you.”‌ He sat beside the Jew for along time during which he performed all his prayers in the same place. The Holy Prophet’s companions made an attempt to intimidate him. Looking at them, the Holy Prophet asked, “What are you going to do with him?”‌ They said, “O Allah’s Messenger! A Jew is taking you a hostage like that!”‌ The Holy Prophet said, “Allah has not commissioned me to do any injustice to non-Muslims.”‌ When the day was coming to an end, the Jew said, “I bear witness that there is no god but Allah and I bear witness that Muhammad is His servant and His Messenger. I give away a portion of my wealth for the sake of Allah, O Messenger! I swear by Allah what I did to you was to see whether you are the same person described in the Torah. I have read your description in the Torah that Muhammad, son of `Abdullah, is born in Mecca; he migrates to Medina. He is neither rough nor furious. He is neither foul-mouthed nor does he use indecent words. I testify to the oneness of Allah and your Prophethood. This is my wealth at your disposal. Spend it as Allah has commanded.”‌

 

Interest-Free Loan For The Needy

Reporting his father, Imam al-Sadiq (A.S) says, “A needy came to the Holy Prophet asking for help. The Holy Prophets asked, “Is there anyone here to give an interest-free loan?”‌ A man from the Ansar rose up saying, “I have such a loan.”‌ The Holy Prophet said, “Give four vessels of date to this man.”‌ The man did so and came to the Holy Prophet after sometime asking for the payment of his loan. The Holy Prophet said, “We will pay it in the coming days.”‌ The man came another time, hearing the same words. But when he came for the third time, the Holy Prophet smiled and said, “Is there anyone here to give an interest-free loan?”‌ A man rose up saying, “O Allah’s Messenger! I have it.”‌ The Holy Prophet asked, “How much is that?”‌ The man said, “As much as you wish!”‌ The Holy Prophet said, “Give eight vessels of date to this man.”‌ The man said, “You owe me only four vessels.”‌ The Holy Prophet said, “The other four vessels too are for you.”‌
