The teachings of the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) on trading



- The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) used to trade, but bought more than what he sold once was entrusted with the message of Allah. He lead other transactions as rent, appointed representatives and he was appointed as such, but he appointed others more than being himself appointed.

- Bought in cash and credit. Interceded for others and others interceded for him. He borrowed with mortgage or without it

- Gave donations and accepted them. He gave gifts and accepted them. If he didn't want the gift He apologized with who gave it to him. He accepted gifts offered by Kings and distributed them among their companions.

- Was the more kind in their businesses. If he borrowed something, he returned something better and prayed to Allaah that he blessed it, his family and his wealth. Once borrowed a camel and his owner came to pick it up being rude with the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him). When his companions wanted to show aggression towards the man, he (peace and blessings be upon him) said: "leave him, as one who has a right can claim it".[1]

- His reaction towards severe abuse towards his person was more tolerance. He advised who was furious to extinct his fury with wudoo' (ablution), and to sit if he was standing, and to seek refuge in Allaah from Shaytaan.

- He was never arrogant; instead, he behaved with humility and modesty with their companions, waving to the young and old.

- Used to joke, but even then, always spoke the truth. He told entertaining stories, but he never said anything that was not the truth.

- Walked and repairing his shoes, sewed his clothes with his own hands. Put patches on their leather bucket, milked his goat, cleaned his garments, served his family and himself and along with his companions carried bricks to construct the mosque.

- Was the most tolerant and amiable person.

- When he was asked to choose between two things, always was by the most simple, provided that it was not a sin.

- Never revenge of an injustice committed against himself, but when one of the prohibitions of Allaah were violated his anger was notorious.

- Used to give and seek advice, visit the sick, attend funerals, accept invitations and devoted in assisting the needs of widows, the poor and the weak.

- The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) used to plead to Allah by anyone who made a favor. He said: "when a favor is done to you and you tell him: 'Jazak-Aláhu jairan' (may Allaah reward you with good), that is enough praise ". [2]
