None other is like Muhammad (P.B.U.H&H.P)

The time goes back to when Holy Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H&H.P) was leader of the Muslim society in Medina. He (P.B.U.H&H.P) is preparing to participate in the collective prayers, when a Jewish man approaches the Prophet (P.B.U.H&H.P) in an alley and claims that the Prophet (P.B.U.H&H.P) owes him. The Prophet (P.B.U.H&H.P) replies: “Firstly, I do not owe you, and you claim for no reason. Secondly, I do not have money with me at this time, allow me to leave.” The man does not allow the Prophet (P.B.U.H&H.P) to take another step. The gentle behavior of the Prophet (P.B.U.H&H.P) only causes the man to act harsher. The Jewish man grapples the Prophet (P.B.U.H&H.P), ties the Prophet’s cloak around his neck, and pulls hard on the cloak. Muslims, now wondering why the Prophet (P.B.U.H&H.P) has delayed in his arrival for prayer, search for the Prophet (P.B.U.H&H.P), only to find him in the dilemma with a Jewish person demanding money. They want to behave harshly but the Prophet of Allah (P.B.U.H&H.P) says: “Leave him alone. I know how I should behave with my friend.” The Prophet’s behavior to the Jewish man was so compassionate that the Jewish man utters “I bear witness that there no God except Allah and you are the Messenger of Allah”. Now a Muslim, the man then adds, “when you endured me with such a power, I realized that this is not the endurance of a normal man; this is a prophetic endurance…”
