Fourth Image: Prophet’s, peace and blessing be upon him, mercy towards non-Muslims and even supplicating Allaah The Almighty to guide them:



- It was narrated that Abu Hurairah, may Allaah be pleased with him, said: “The Messenger of Allaah, peace and blessing be upon him, was asked  to invoke Allaah to punish the polytheists but he, peace and blessing be upon him, replied: «I have not been sent as one to curse but as a mercy» (Reported by Muslim).



- It was narrated that Abu Hurairah, may Allaah be pleased with him, said: “I used to call my mother to Islam when she was a Mushrikah (i.e. polytheist). I called her one day and she said something about the Messenger of Allaah, peace and blessing be upon him, that I did not like to hear. So I went to the Messenger of Allaah, peace and blessing be upon him, weeping, and said, “O Messenger of Allaah, I have been calling my mother to Islam, but she refuses. I called her today and she said something about you that I did not like to hear. Pray to Allaah to guide the mother of Abu Hurairah.” The Messenger of Allaah, peace and blessing be upon him, said, «O Allaah, guide the mother of Abu Hurayrah». I went out feeling optimistic because of the Du‘aa’ (supplication) of the Prophet of Allaah, peace and blessing be upon him. When I came home and reached the door, I saw that it was slightly ajar. My mother heard my footsteps and said, “Stay where you are, O Abu Hurairah!” and I could hear the trickling of water. She took a bath and got dressed, and put on her headcover, then she opened the door and said, “O Abu Hurairah, I bear witness that there is no god except Allaah, and I bear witness that Muhammad is His slave and Messenger!” I went back to the Messenger of Allaah, peace and blessing be upon him, and I came to him weeping with joy. I said, “O Messenger of Allaah, rejoice, for Allaah has answered your prayer and guided the mother of Abu Hurairah.” So he, peace and blessing be upon him, praised Allaah and said good words. I said, “O Messenger of Allaah, pray to Allaah to make my mother and me beloved to His believing slaves, and to make them beloved to us.” The Messenger of Allaah, peace and blessing be upon him, said, «O Allaah, make this slave of Yours -meaning Abu Hurairah- and his mother beloved to Your believing slaves, and make the believers beloved to them». So there are no believing people who hear of me even though they do not see me, but they love me" (Reported by Muslim).


- It was narrated that Abu Hurairah, may Allaah be pleased with him, said: “Tufayl ibn ‘Amr Ad-Dawsi and his companions came to the Prophet, peace and blessing be upon him, and said: “O Messenger of Allaah, Daws have rebelled and disobeyed, so pray to Allaah against them.” People said, “Now Daws are doomed!” He, peace and blessing be upon him, said, «O Allaah, guide Daws and bring them here» (Reported by Al-Bukhaari).



- It was narrated that Jaabir ibn ‘Abdullaah, may Allaah be pleased with him, said: “They said, ‘O Messenger of Allaah, we have suffered much from the arrows of Thaqeef (this was when they were fighting, before they became Muslim), so pray to Allaah against them.’ He said, «O Allaah, guide Thaqeef»” (Reported by At-Tirmithi, who said: this is a Hasan Saheeh  ghareeb (good, authentic and strange) Hadeeth).



- It was narrated that Anas, may Allaah be pleased with him, said: “A young Jewish boy used to serve the Prophet, peace and blessing be upon him, and he became sick. So the Prophet, peace and blessing be upon him, went to visit him. He sat near his head and asked him to embrace Islam. The boy looked at his father, who was sitting there; the latter told him to obey Abul Qaasim, peace and blessing be upon him, and the boy embraced Islam. The Prophet, peace and blessing be upon him, came out saying: «Praises be to Allaah Who saved the boy from the Hell-fire» (Reported by Al-Bukhaari).
