What Would Prophet Mohammad Do To Trump?
By Mahmoud El-Yousseph
December 16, 2015
Two stories kept popping through my head, both of which took place during the life of the Prophet (peace be upon him). Based on the Prophet's response to the woman and man in those stories, I feel that the Prophet will not treat Trump any differently. Americans and especially Muslims can take heed from those two stories.
First: The Bedouin who urinated in the mosque (1)
While we were in the "masjid" (mosque) with the Messenger of "Allah"
(God), a Bedouin came; he then urinated in the masjid. The Companions of
the Messenger of God were furious and severely scolded the Bedouin. The
Prophet said, “Do not put a halt to his urinating, but instead leave
him.” They left him alone until he finished urinating.
Secondly: The woman who threw trash at the Prophet
One day, the Prophet (pbuh) did not see the woman to be on the roof of her house. This worried him, because he thought something must have happened to her for not being over there. So he knocked at the door to inquire if she was ill. When she opened the door, she was pleased by the affectionate tone of the Prophet's (pbuh) voice and his kind attitude inspired her into recognition of the truth, and his prayers were answered in the form of her embracing Islam.
Here are the links to the stories that I quoted and which should be
included at the end of the article.
