He, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, was the best in dealing with people. He, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, would buy, sell and enter into business partnerships. Once, when a previous partner in business came to visit him, he [the man] asked the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam: “Did you recognize me?” The Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, responded: “Weren’t you my partner? You were a good partner. Neither did you conceal nor did you use to argue excessivelyHe, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, also gave gifts and accepted them.

He, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, borrowed money and property and purchased goods with deferred forms of payment.

Whenever he, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, borrowed money he would pay back more than he borrowed and when someone would pay him back a loan that he had borrowed from him, he, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, would pray for him saying: “May Allah bless your family and wealth. The reward for giving someone a loan is praise and to pay him back.

He, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, dedicated a piece of land (Waqf; endowment) that he owned as a source of charity for the poor.

The Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, interceded for others (in worldly affairs), and asked others to intercede for him. He, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, did not get angry when Bareerah (a freed slave) rejected his request for her to return to her husband. He, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, was indeed the best of examples.

He, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, would joke with others but he always spoke the truth.

He, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, sometimes would race others and even wrestle with them.

He, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, served his family members, carried materials for building the Masjid (mosque) and he used to host his guests, and sometimes would be a guest at the houses of others.

Ibn Al-Qayyim said: “He, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, visited ill people, attended funerals, answered invitations, and looked after the needs of widows and poor people. He, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, enjoyed poetry and rewarded poets in return.”
