Hassan Basarally 1120020 SER202 2
Allah,
هن ح سلت
, has described the Messenger,
ىلصيلعلس
, as a mercy to the worlds in the verse:
َـَْَْرَ
 
آََوَِَـَْ
 
ًَْحَر
 
ّِ
 
And We have sent you not but as a mercy for the `Alamin. (Anbiya 21: 107) Mercy is gentleness, forgiveness and seeking goodness for others. It is directed to all, both to loved ones and the adversaries and it stems from a position of strength or authority. The Messenger,
ىلصيلعلس
, is a mercy to all creatures. However to prove someone is truly merciful, it must be demonstrated in all aspects of life. By discussing the manner of the Prophet,
ىلصيلعلس
, with his family, companions, the vulnerable and strangers and his enemies, it is clear that the description of the verse is befitting. The Messenger acted in the best manner with his wives, servants and children. He,
ىلصهيلعلس
, was the head of the household, leader of people and a Prophet of Allah, yet the duties as a husband and father were fulfilled. He,
ىلصيلعلس
, always spent time with his children, assisted in the housework, educated the family despite the heavy burden of Prophethood. Many times He,
ىلصيلعلس
, faced severe economic hardship and this did not result in the duties towards the family being neglected. In fact, Islam brought an emphasis on showing love towards children that was not present before, as seen in the Hadeeth:

 Narrated `Aisha: A Bedouin came to the Prophet (
 
) and said, "You (people) kiss the boys! We don't kiss them." The Prophet said, "I cannot put mercy in your heart after Allah has taken it away from it."

 An example of how concerned the Messenger,
ىلصيلعلس
, was for the welfare of his wives is demonstrated in the incident of the slander against Aisha. In this incident, the reputation of the Prophet,
ىلصيلعلس
, as a man, as a husband, as a leader and as a Prophet was under attack. Today, when such things happen, proven or not it results in argument, separation, divorce and even violence between spouses. This was not the response of the Messenger,
ىلصيلعلس
, He allowed his wife to go to her family, waited patiently for the accusations to the proved or disproved and he did not abuse his wife in any way. This is seen in the following Hadeeth:

 Narrated Aisha: Allah's Messenger (
 
) addressed the people, and after praising and glorifying Allah, he said, "What do you suggest me regarding those people who are abusing my wife? I have never known anything bad about her." The sub-narrator, `Urwa, said: When `Aisha was told of the slander, she said, "O Allah's Apostle! Will you allow me to go to my parents' home?" He
