The Holy Prophet’s (sa) Manner of Conversation
The Holy Prophet Muhammad(sa) never talked unnecessarily, and when he did talk his speech was eloquent and meaningful. Once he would begin, he completed his words. His speech was flawless, free from useless chatter and clear to everyone listening. He would never speak harshly to his companions(ra) or humiliate them. He would recall even their small favours with gratitude and never debased anyone. He was never angry with anyone in worldly matters, but if anyone transgressed from the truth, his fury was unpreventable and he would even ordain punishment. But he was never angry nor punished anyone for anything concerning his own person. When he was angry he would turn his face away; when he was pleased he would look down. When he smiled, his white teeth sparkled like hail falling from the clouds.
