The Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said the best among us is the one who is good to his wife, his family, and I am the best to my family.
One day Saffiya رضي الله عنها - the wife of the prophet wanted to mount the camel but she was too short. The prophet put his own blessed thigh down for her to help her mount on to the camel!
We are talking about the prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم - the best man to walk the face of this Earth!
Aisha رضي الله عنها one time was in her house with the prophet and a slave entered upon them with some food from one of the other wives of the prophet. Aisha asked her, where did you get this from? The slave girl mentioned the name of one of the other wives of the prophet. Do you know what Aisha رضي الله عنها did? She kicked it, she broke the bowl and the food spilled on the floor! The prophet said humorously, 'your mother, the mother of the believers, she got jealous' and he was repeating that several times. Then the prophet went on to say, 'a plate be replaced by a plate [replace the plate], and we replace the food too,' and he was gathering the food by his own blessed hands - صلى الله عليه وسلم !
See how gentle our beloved messenger is, a leader, a role model for all! As Muslims we follow Islam not society.
Many of us today would do the opposite and lash out, this is your supreme example to follow - to tolerate as he صلى الله عليه وسلم tolerated, to be good as he صلى الله عليه وسلم was good! This is our leader in which the ummah has been blessed to be able to follow in his guidance!
