Lessons From Prophet Mohamed (PBUH): Helping Others


There are so many misconceptions about Islam and people tend to overlook how peaceful it is as a religion. Stories about Prophet Mohamed (PBUH) show us how he was a true Muslim and how every action he took was a lesson we should learn from.

During Ramadan, we’ll be sharing short stories that show us how Prophet Mohamed (PBUH) treated strangers, loved ones and even his enemies in the hopes that we can learn from him and follow in his footsteps.

Below is a story about how the Prophet (PBUH) used to help people:


One day, Prophet Mohamed (PBUH) saw a slave grinding some grain on a grinding mill driven by hand. As he ground the grains, he was crying. On seeing this, the Prophet became anxious. He asked the slave the reason why he was weeping and the slave said, “I am sick. I cannot grind the grain. My master is very cruel and he will beat me if I cannot finish my job.”

At this, the Prophet stepped forward and ground the rest of the grain saying, “Always call me if you have any grain to grind. I will do it for you.”

Another time, the Prophet (PBUH) saw an old man walking and trembling under the weight of water that he carried in a leather holder. The old man walked a few steps and rested a bit. Seeing this, the Prophet took the load and carried it to his place.


Let us remember that we’re all humans and we’re all descendants of Adam and Eve. The Prophet (PBUH) used to help the old, the poor and the needy and so should we. Don’t wait for something in return, but offer your hand to whoever is in need and ISA it will be repaid whenever you need help, too. Doesn’t that sound like a bright world to live in?
