Muhammad (peace be upon him) was the savior of mankind. He has taken practical steps to establish the rights and dignity of people at all levels of society. In pre-Islamic Arabia, slaves, domestic workers and servants had no rights. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) set an example of incomparable humanity in establishing their dignity. He never treated the housemaids and servants with kindness and authority. In their eyes he was a shadowy father, a compassionate guardian, an ideal teacher, a sympathetic friend, a loving brother, and an everlasting companion of happiness and sorrow.
The best companion among the slaves: He freed all the slaves among the servants of the Prophet (peace be upon him). Arrange for the marriage of those who were unmarried. He never made any difference in teaching them properly. That is why among his servants the best learned Companions like Anas bin Malik, Bilal bin Rabah and Abdullah bin Masood have been made.
Good manners with the servants: He has never been stingy in establishing the humane dignity and due respect of the servants and housemaids. He also wore what he wore. He also fed them what he ate. He also ordered the disciples to do the same. Narrating the incident of Abujar Ghiffari, one of his servants, Marur Ibn Suwada said, “Once I met Abujar Ghiffari.” He was wearing a pair of clothes and his slave was wearing a similar dress. When asked why, he said, “I once insulted a slave disciple.” He complained against me to the beloved Prophet (peace be upon him). Then the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said to me, ‘Did you make fun of his mother?’ He added, ‘Listen, your slaves are your brothers. God has made them subservient to you. If someone’s brother is under his control, let him eat from what he eats, and let him wear from what he wears, and not force them to do anything they cannot do. If you give them any work beyond their means, then help them. ‘(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 6050)
Never blasphemed in 10 years of service: Anas (ra), a long 10 year servant of the Prophet, testified to his humanity by swearing by Allah. In 10 years, he has never been angry with her, never resorted to torture in the name of rule. He said, “I have served the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) for 10 years. By Allah, he never scolded me. Never said a word oops. Never said, why did you do this? Why didn’t you do this? ’(Bukhari, Hadith: 6430)
Searching for Jewish Servants: The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) never neglected to search for working people. A Jewish boy was serving him. It is mentioned in the hadith that when he fell ill, he went to see him himself. Umm Ayman was the free maid of the Prophet, doing housework. She respected him like a mother. He used to inquire about her. In the love of the Prophet, she sacrificed her husband and children in the way of Allah.
Guidance to forgive the working people 70 times daily: The beloved Prophet (peace be upon him) has always emphasized kindness towards the working people. In reality, they are not above mistakes and weaknesses. In this case, their weaknesses must be looked at with an apologetic look. It has been narrated from Abdullah bin Umar that a man once came to the Prophet (peace be upon him) and said, “How many more times will we forgive the housemaids?” Then he is silent. The man asks the same question again. After asking three questions in this way, the Prophet (peace be upon him) said, “Forgive them 70 times a day.” (Abu Dawood, Hadith: 4496)
