Doing Things Gracefully

Musjid Nabawi 3Hazrat Munzir bin Qays (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) came to Madeenah Munawwarah with a delegation from his tribe. Upon reaching, the delegation went ahead to meet Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) while Munzir remained behind. In their absence he took care of their animals and luggage. When they returned, he took a bath and put on clean clothes and gracefully and respectfully came to meet Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was pleased with the manner he conducted and explained that he has two good qualities, hilm – endurance, and the other inaa‘ah – to do things gracefully and gradually.

Overall, when we have endurance and a good level of understanding then the work that we undertake does not go wrong. Everybody will be pleased with the results. However, if we are in a rush and hurry to do it then we will spoil things. Allah Ta‘ala loves that we do things gradually and with understanding and endurance.
