Prophet Muhammed’s (ﷺ) Mercy towards the Youth

Ultimate calm: Sayyiduna Anas bin Maalik (ra) said: “I served the Prophet ﷺ for ten years. Never did he say to me ‘fie’ or ‘Why did you do such and such?’ or ‘Did you not do such and such?’”. (Sahih Bukhari, Sahih Muslim)

Prophet Muhammed’s (ﷺ) Mercy towards the Youth

How Prophet Muhammad (Pbuh) treated the youth

Exceptional grooming with love & patience:

Sayyiduna Umar bin Salama (ra) narrated: “I (remember when I) was a young boy in the house of Allah’s Messenger ﷺ, and (while taking food) my hand would move from place to place around the food-dishes. Allah’s Messenger ﷺ said to me, ‘Young man! Mention Allah’s name, eat with your right hand, and eat from that which is closest to you.’ Since then, I always followed these eating instructions.” We see, there were absolutely no traces of displeasure on the beautiful face and the melodious voice of the noble Prophet ﷺ. 

Respecting the youth: Sayyiduna Sahl bin Sa’d (ra) narrated: “Once a bowl was brought to the Prophet ﷺ and he drank from it (and left some from it to be distributed amongst the companions), and on his right side there was a young man who was the youngest of those present, and on his left were the elders. The Prophet ﷺ said: ‘Young man! Do you permit me to give this to the elders first?’ The young man replied, ‘O Messenger of Allah! I am not about to prefer anyone to my bounty from you.’ Upon hearing this, the holy Prophet ﷺ gave it to him.” According to Imam Nawawi, this young man was Abdullah bin Abbas (ra). (Sahih Bukhari)

Emphasis on caring daughters: Sayyiduna Anas bin Maalik (ra) said: “The holy Prophet ﷺ said: ‘Whoever cares for two young girls until they both reach the age of maturity, I will arrive on the Day of Resurrection with him like this’, then he ﷺ joined two of his fingers together. _(Muslim, Tirmidhi)_

Mercy on youth, respect for elderly: Sayyiduna Amr bin Shu’ayb (ra) narrated that the holy Prophet ﷺ said: “The one who does not show mercy to our young nor respect our elders is not from us.” _(Ahmad, Abu Dawood, Tirmidhi, Bukhari in al-Adab al-Mufrad)_

Teaching parenthood: Sayyiduna Abdullah bin Amir (ra) said: “Allah’s Messenger ﷺ came to our house when I was a young boy. As I went out to play, my mother called me, “O Abdullah! Come here and I will give you something.” Allah’s Messenger ﷺ asked her, ‘What did you intend to give him?’. She replied, ‘I will give him a date palm.’ Allah’s Messenger ﷺ then said: ‘If you did not give him (something), it would have been recorded against you as a lie.’” _(Ahmad, Abu Dawood, Ibn Abi Shayba)_
