What would you do to someone who murdered members of your family, tortured your friends and made your life extremely unbearable?
When the Prophet Muhammad (Peace and blessings be upon him) conquered Makkah, He had the Non-Believers assembled before him. They were the very ones who, for nearly 2 decades mocked, abused, tortured and murdered his family members and friends.
Do you know, what the Prophet Muhammad (Peace and mercy be upon him) did to them now when they are completely helpless and at his disposal?
He forgave them and freed them.
Yes, He (Peace and mercy be upon him) forgave them and freed them.
The very ones who had murdered and mutilated the body of His uncle.
The very ones who were responsible for the murder of His (Peace and mercy be upon him) daughter.
The very ones who had tortured and mocked Him (Peace and blessings be upon him) and His friends and family.
Freed and forgiven!
If you find such incredible mercy hard to believe in, please go and educate yourself about the day, known as the Conquest of Makkah.
This was the very nature of the Prophet Muhammed (Peace and blessings be upon him), a forgiving and merciful nature. And this example the day of the Conquest of Makkah is only one of many many similar examples from His (Peace and blessings be upon him) blessed life.
Think about the mercy of the Most Merciful of those who show mercy, Whose mercy no one can describe, the extent of which no one can comprehend. Glory be to Him, His slaves cannot comprehend Him; He is more merciful to His slaves than a mother to her child, as His Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) told us.
Yet despite that, He tests them with calamities and trials, by His wisdom, and He punishes His enemies with vengeance and humiliation in this world and with eternity in Hell in the Hereafter, and none of that contradicts the perfection of His mercy towards His slaves, glory be to Him.
[Source: Sahih Al-Bukhari, Hadith: 4557]
Today, it is very unfortunate that there are people who try to paint the ⊥MIƧ⊥ƎD picture of the Prophet of Mercy (Peace and blessings be upon him) due to their hatred born out of being brainwashed by an extremely manipulative Media and biased books written by people, full of hatred for Islam and Muslims.
The fact of the matter is, there is no one in the history more merciful than the Prophet of Mercy, Muhammad (Peace and blessings be upon him).
Allah mentions in the Quran: And We have not sent you (O Muhammad), except as a mercy to the worlds. [Quran 21:107]
It was narrated from Ibn ‘Abbaas, that Allah sent His Prophet Muhammad (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) as a mercy to all the worlds, both believers and disbelievers. As for the believers, Allah guided them through him and caused them, through their belief in him and their acting upon what he brought from Allah, to enter Paradise.
As for the disbelievers, by virtue of him, He warded off from them the hastening of the punishment that came upon the nations who disbelieved in their Messengers before him.
