The seal of the Prophets’ mercy towards children
A man saw the seal of the Prophets (peace be upon him) kiss a child, so he became surprised and said, ‘Do you kiss your children?’ Consequently, the seal of the Prophets (peace be upon him) said, ‘What do you own if Allah has removed mercy from your heart related by Al-Bukhari and Muslim.


And when his grandchild died, the seal of the Prophets (peace be upon him) cried. One of the Companions asked him about this, so the seal of the Prophets (peace be upon him) said,


It is mercy which Allah placed in the hearts of His slaves. Truly, Allah shows mercy to those of His slaves who are merciful related by Al-Buhari and Muslim.


The seal of the Prophets (peace be upon him) adorned his victory with mercy and forgiveness


The actions of the Messenger after the liberation of Mecca indicate that he was a Prophet that was sent by Allah, and not a triumphant ruler. This is because he showed mercy and compassion to the people in Mecca although he was in a position of power at that time; he adorned his victory and gain with mercy and forgiveness

The seal of the Prophets’ mercy with the weak
When the seal of the Prophets (peace be upon him) started to spread the call in public, and when the weak were the first ones who believed in it, the rich and powerful said, “Leave them (the weak) and we will believe in you.” But the seal of the Prophets (peace be upon him) totally refused to do this. The seal of the Prophets (peace be upon him) used to also pay attention to the needs of the weak and servants, who were mocked and greatly oppressed, and who were not given their rights.


The seal of the Prophets (peace be upon him) said,


Who is not merciful (to others) will not be shown mercy related by Al-Bukhari and Muslim.


And The seal of the Prophets, Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), said with regards to the servants,


They are your brothers, and Allah placed them under your control. Anyone who has a servant under his control should feed him with what he (the master) eats, clothe him with clothes similar to what he (the master) wears, and not burden him with any work which is too much for him. But if he tells him to do such work, he (the master) should help him (the servant) related by Al-Bukhari and Muslim.


The seal of the Prophets (peace be upon him) also said,


Allah will show mercy to those who are merciful to others. Be merciful to those on the earth for the One in the heavens to be merciful to you related by Abu Dawood and At-Tirmidhi.


For this reason, the seal of the Prophets (peace be upon him) said,


If a servant of yours comes with food, let him sit with you (to eat) or give him some of the food; for he is the one who heated it and prepared it


(i.e., cooked it, smelt it when it was cooking, and took time to prepare it)


related by Ibn Majah.


Similarly, with orphans and widows, he used to encourage the people to look after the many needs of the orphan. The seal of the Prophets (peace be upon him) said,


I and the one who is a guardian to an orphan will be like these two in paradise’ and he pointed to his index and middle fingers related by Al-Bukhari and Muslim.


The seal of the Prophets, Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), made caring for the needs of widows and the poor like the one who struggles in Allah’s cause, and the one who fasts during the day and prays supererogatory prayers at night. The seal of the Prophets (peace be upon him) considered the presence of the weak in the nation as well as helping them and showing them compassion one of the reasons for gaining victory over the enemies and for gaining sustenance, in general. The seal of the Prophets (peace be upon him) said,


I want you to look for the weak, for truly you gain victory and sustenance due to the weak among you related by Abu Dawood and At-Tirmidhi.
