Ways of The Prophet (S.A.W)by Sheikh Muhammad Abdul Hai Arifi
Gentleness and sympathy
Hadrat Anas (Radi Allaahu Ta’ala Anhu) narrated, “The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam) was very gentle and kind. One day he sent me on some errand. I said, ‘By ALLAAH, I will not go though in my heart I said I will certainly go on the errand on which the Prophet has sent me. Then I set out and came by some children in the market place. Suddenly I felt some one pulling my hair from behind me. As I turned to look, I saw the Prophet laughing. He asked, “Anas! Did you go there where I had sent you”.
I said, ‘Yes, O Prophet of ALLAAH! I will certainly go.’ [Mishkat: Hayatul Muslimin]
