A Glimpse into the Life of the Holy Prophet Muhammadsa

Consideration Towards the Uncultured

He was particularly considerate towards those who, from lack of cultural training, did not know how to behave. On one occasion a dweller of the desert who had only recently accepted Islam and who was sitting in the company of the Holy Prophetsa in the mosque got up and walking away a few paces sat down in a corner of the mosque to pass water. Some of the Companions of the Prophetsa got up to stop him from doing so. The Prophetsa restrained them, pointing out that any interference with the man was bound to cause inconvenience to him and might possibly cause him injury. He told his Companions to let the man alone and to clean the spot later.1
