i don't know her name but someone told me the story and she threw rubbish over him when he walked past her house every day and then one day she didnt do it and he went in her house to see if she was ok because he was worried she was ill. do u know which one i mean?
Oh yes, I heard that story…
She was an old bitter woman who made a habit of throwing rubbish on Prophet Muhammad (SAWS) whenever he passed from her house. The Prophet (SAWS) had to pass that house daily on the way to the mosque. Even when the old woman threw rubbish on him, he would pass silently without showing any anger or annoyance. This was a regular, daily event.
One day when Prophet was passing by the woman was not there to throw the rubbish. He stopped and asked the neighbor about her well-being. The neighbor informed the prophet that the woman was sick on bed. The Prophet(SAWS) politely asked permission to visit the woman. When allowed he entered the house, the woman thought that he had come there to take his revenge when she was unable to defend herself because of sickness. But the prophet assured her that he had come to her, not to take any revenge, but to see her and to look after her needs, as it was the command of Allah that if any one is sick, a Muslim should visit him and should help him if his help is needed.
The old woman was greatly moved by this kindness and love of Prophet. By the example of greatness of Muhammad (SAW), she understood that he was truly the Prophet of God and Islam was the true religion. She accepted Islam at once.
Subhan’Allah. Can you imagine the number of people who would have reverted/converted to Islam, had we all acted the way the Prophet (SAWS) taught us?
