ALMS

One day, a Christian merchant stopped by when the Prophet (s.a.v) was talking about the hadith ” Alms is the guardian of wealth.”After listening to all the sayings of the Prophet (s.a.v.) about alms, he left and gave his alms.   This Christian merchant had a partner who went to Egypt to trade.At that time, trade was done by travelling in large caravans of people, horses and camels, so thieves constantly hi-jacked and took their money and goods.The merchant thought: “If Muhammad (s.a.v.)’s words are true, my partner will return safely with his property,and I will believe in Islam. But if he doesn’t return safely then, if Muhammad (s.a.v.) is lying and deceiving the nation, and my partner doesn’t return safely,and the thieves will rob him, I will draw my sword and ask Muhammad (s.a.v.) to answer. ”   A letter came from his partner. Thieves hi-jacked the caravan, took all the property.Nothing left, no clothes, no goods, absolutely nothing.   As he read these lines of the letter, the Christian merchant, was hurt deeply and very sorrowful, immediately he took to his sword,and left to start a war against the Prophet (s.a.v.). He received a second letter from his partner as he was about the leave,in the second letter it was written “My friend, don’t worry,I was lagging behind the caravan when the thieves robbed the caravan.Nothing happened to me. I am in a good state and all of our goods are safe. I’ll be back soon, greetings … ”   Upon reading this, the Christian merchant, who believed that the Prophet (s.a.v.) was right and told the truth, came to the Prophet (s.a.v.),and said: “O Messenger of Allah! “Explain Islam to me, I will believe.”   When the Prophet (s.a.v.) explained, he started to believe and came together with Muslims under the flag of Islam and thus gained the honor of a superior human being.
