The forgiveness of the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, becomes clear when we examine his forbearance, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, when he was on his way with his army, heading towards Uhud. He, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, decided to pass through the farm of a hypocrite who was also blind, and his name was Mirba` ibn Qaythiyy.

When the Messenger of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, reached the line of the man’s property, he said to the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, “O Muhammad, I do not permit you to pass through my land.” And he took a handful of dirt in his hand, and said: “By Allah, if I knew that I would not hit anyone with this dirt besides you, I would have thrown it at you.”

Upon hearing this, the people rushed to him in order to kill him. However, the Messenger of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, said: “Leave him be, for this blind man is blind in the heart and blind from  any insight.” The Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, did not order that the man be killed or even harmed, since the Muslim army was on the way to fight, the situation was tense and people were on edge.

However, it is not from the characteristic of Muslim fighters to transgress against anyone, especially those who have disabilities or to harmthose who are disabled.
