There are so many examples of tolerance from the life of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). Some of them we will discuss below in this article:
During the first thirteen years of his life in Makah, he and his followers faced much oppression from their opponents.
In the battle of Uhud, when his Makkan enemies attacked the Muslims, Prophet Muhammad (SAW) suffered a head injury and his front teeth got broken. When the blood started to seep from his head, he wiped it saying: “If a drop of my blood fell on the earth, those infidels will be destroyed by Allah.” Umar told him, O Messenger of Allah, Curse them! The prophet replied: “I wasn’t sent (by Allah) to curse. So I was sent as a mercy.” Then he said: “O Allah, Guide my people!”(Authenticated by Al-Albani)
Prophet Muhammad (SAW) said in one of his Hadith: “A true believer is one with whom others feel secure” (Al-Bukhari). He (SAW) proved these words with action and was not fast to revenge a wrong achiever.
Injustice with Non-Muslims
Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) has strictly warned his followers from injustice with non-Muslims. “Beware! Whoever is cruel and harsh to a non-Muslim minority, curtailing their rights, overburdening them, or stealing from them, I will complain [to God].” [Abu Dawud]
The story of Bedouin who urinated in Mosque shed light is on the facts that how tolerant Muhammad (SAW) was towards the non-believers as narrated in one of his Hadith: “A desert Arab came and stood up and began to urinate in the mosque.
These were some examples of tolerance from the life of the beloved Prophet (SAW). Muslims as stubborn, aggressive and intolerant, need to look at and analyze the life and actions of Prophet Muhammad (SAW).
