The Prophet (peace be upon him) sometimes narrated stories of previous people to the companions. Of course, all these stories were facts and not made up, and the Prophet didn’t narrate them for entertainment but rather to learn lessons from them that we can apply to our own lives.

The Prophet's life had been crossed with tears, but he remained both gentle with his heart and firm in his mission. It was this chemistry of gentleness and firmness that satisfied the Most Near.
Mut’im was one of those who had previously helped in nullifying the Quraysh’s boycott that led the whole sub-tribe of the Prophet to starve for three years. When he heard that the Prophet was asking for his protection, he immediately sent a positive answer. Then he ordered his sons...
Recently, the Prophet objected to any form of belligerence against these caravans, and did not attack the caravans when he had the opportunity in non-sacred months (see Part 2). So, what then do his words above mean? The first analysis of his words reveals that...
