Examples of gratefulness
A’ishah said that the Prophet of God (pbuh) used to pray during the night until his feet would swell. She said, ‘Why do you do this, O Messenger of God, while God has forgiven your past and future sins?’ The Prophet (pbuh) replied:
'Shall I not be a grateful slave of God?'
Prophet Muhammad (saw) politeness and good manners
Prophet Muhammad (saw) showed good manners and was courteous to all, even to children. Once when the Prophet was in a gathering, a drink was brought to the Prophet (saw) and he drank from it. On his right side there was a young boy and on his life side were elderly men. Feeling obliged by the respect of elders, and not wanting to hurt the feelings of the child, he asked the young boy:
"Do you mind if I give the drink to them?" The young boy said: "O Prophet of God! By God! I would not prefer anyone to drink from the place you drank. This is my fair share"* The Messenger of God (saw) handed the boy the drink." (Bukhari #2319)
*According to Islamic etiquette. One should always begin from the right.
Prophet Muhammad (saw)’s character
The Prophet (saw) was a living example for all humans to follow. His wife A’ishah was asked about his manners, and she said,
"His manners were the Quran."
In this statement, A’ishah meant that the Prophet (saw) abided by its laws and commands and abstained from its prohibitions, and observed the virtuous deeds mentioned in it. The Prophet (saw) said:
"God has sent me to perfect good manners and to do good deeds." (Bukhari & Ahmed)
Allah, the Exalted, described the Prophet (saw) saying:
"And indeed, you are of great moral character." (Quran 68:4)
