Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)’s Forgiving and not Taking Revenge

عن عائشة رضي الله عنها قالت ما ضرب رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم شيئا قط بيده ولا امرأة ولا خادما إلا أن يجاهد في سبيل الله وما نيل منه شيء قط فينتقم من صاحبه إلا أن ينتهك شيء من محارم الله فينتقم لله عز وجل (صحيح مسلم #2328)

Hazrat ‘Aa’ishah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) has mentioned that apart from Jihaad, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) never hit any person with his blessed hand, neither a woman nor a servant. And if Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was harmed (verbally or physically) by any person, he never took revenge. However, if any law of Allah Ta‘ala was broken, he would seek retribution for the sake of Allah Azza wa Jall.”

When dealing with the creation, Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam)’s compassion surpassed all bounds and limits. Even on the occasion of Fath-e-Makkah (the conquest of Makkah Mukarramah) when Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam)’s victory was at its peak, Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) entered Makkah Mukarramah as a compassionate, loving and forgiving servant of Allah Ta’ala. On that day, Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) made an open declaration of forgiveness. It was this mubaarak quality of compassion and forgiveness that won the hearts of the enemies of Islam and caused them to embrace Islam.

May Allah Ta’ala bless us with this mubaarak quality of Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) of showing compassion to the entire creation and forgiving all those who have harmed us.
