Al-Miswar ibn Makhramah (a Companion) reported that his father, Makhramah said to him, “O son, I have been informed that the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, has received some cloaks and is giving them away, so let us go to him.’

So they went and found the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, in his home, and his father said

“O son, call the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, for me,” but I considered that an enormity and said: “Should I call the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, for you!” He said: “O my son, he is not a tyrant.” So I called him, and he, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, came out of his home, and he came out wearing a cloak made of silk and embroidered with gold, and said: “O Makhramah, we hid this one for you,” and gave him the cloak.2

Ibn Hajar (a scholar) said: “This occurred before the prohibition of silk for men, and it is possible that he wore it on his shoulders so that he could show it to Makhramah, and did not mean to wear it.”

When the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, said to Makhramah: “I had kept this for you,” it was to console his heart.

Ibn Battaal (a scholar) said: “Kindness in general is one of the qualities of the believer, and it entails being gentle with people in action and speech, as well as avoiding harshness with them when speaking. This is one of the best ways of forming closeness and harmony and doing away with hatred and ill feelings.”

Ibn Hajar said: “The narration contains the Prophet’s, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, humbleness and kindness with his Companions.”
