The Man Who Spoke Very Harshly and Impolitely with the Holy Prophet (S.A.W.)
Once, a delegation arrived from Yemen in the presence of the Holy Prophet (S.A.W.). Among them was a person who was eloquent in speech but he spoke very harshly and impolitely with the Prophet (S.A.W.).
Eventually, the Prophet (S.A.W.) became enraged and this was evident from his face. At that moment, Jibrael (A.S.) descended and said, “By nature, this man is generous and he feeds the people”. As soon as the Holy Prophet (S.A.W.) heard this, his anger subsided and he (S.A.W.) said, “If Jibrael would not have informed me on behalf of Allah (SWT) that you are generous and feed the people, I would have expelled you from my presence and this would have served as an example for others too!”
The man was shocked. He asked, “Does your Allah love generosity?” The Holy Prophet (S.A.W.) replied in the affirmative, the man from Yemen declared: “I bear witness that there is no god but Allah and indeed you are His messenger”. Then, the man added and said: “By Allah – Who has sent you in truth, I have never turned away anyone from my wealth”. (Jawame’ al-Hikaayaat)
