Allah The Exalted Says (what means):

“There has certainly been for you in the Messenger of Allah an excellent pattern [example] for anyone whose hope is in Allah and the Last Day and [who] remembers Allah often.”
(Quran: 33:21)

Ibn Katheer (R.al) commented, “This holy verse contains the great principle of adhering to the sayings, actions and injunctions of the Messenger of Allah.”
[Tafseer Ibn Katheer (391/6)]

Allah sent His Messenger as mercy and guidance to humanity. Therefore, the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, became the best of examples for those hoping to please Allah, and those hoping for a high status in the Hereafter; for people who do not desire exaltedness upon the earth or corruption.

The Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, was an Example in Good Manners:

Allah the Exalted Says (what means):

“And indeed, you are of a great moral character.”
(Quran: 68:4)

The Prophet’s manners were based on the Quran. He, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, was pleased by whatever the Quran stated was good, and he was angered by whatever the Quran stated was evil and he, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, was neither harsh nor loud.
[Reported by Al-Bukhaari (3559) and Muslim (2321) on the authority of ‘Abdullaah ibn ‘Amr (R.A)]

He, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, used to forgive and not reply to a transgression with a similar transgression.
[Reported by At-Tirmithi (2016) on the authority of ‘Aa’ishah (R.Ah.]

Safiyyah (RadiyAllahu Anha) (the wife of the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“I have seen nobody with better manners than the Messenger of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam.”
[Reported by At-Tabaraani in his book Al-Awsat (6578)]

Anas (RadiyAllahu Anhu) said:

“I served Prophet Mohammad, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, for nine years. (During these nine years) he never asked as to why I did this or did not do that.”
[Reported by Al-Bukhaari (2768) and Muslim (2310)]

He, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, was also an example in tolerance:

Allah Says (what means):

“So by mercy from Allah, [O Muhammad (SAWS)], you were lenient with them. And if you had been rude [in speech] and harsh in heart, they would have disbanded from about you.”
(Quran: 3:159)

Anas (RadiyAllahu Anhu) said, “I was walking with the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, and he was wearing a Najraani robe that had rough sides. A Bedouin came upon him and pulled him by his robe very roughly, so I looked at the side of the Prophet’s neck, and the side of the robe had left a mark from the strong pull.

He then said: ‘O Muhammad, give me some of Allah’s money that you have.’
So the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, looked at him, laughed and ordered that he be given some.”
[Reported by Al-Bukhaari (3149) and Muslim (1057)]

He, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, was an example in kindness and mercy:

Allah The Exalted Says (what means):

“And We have not sent you, [O Muhammad (SAWS)], except as a mercy to the worlds.”
(Quran: 21:107)

Abu Tharr (RadiyAllahu Anhu) said:

“One night the Messenger of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, prayed and continued to recite the verse (which means):

“If You should punish them – indeed they are Your servants; but if You forgive them, indeed it is You who is the Exalted in Might, the Wise.”

until morning. I asked him about this, he, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, responded:

“I asked my Lord to permit me to intercede for my nation. He, The Exalted, granted me my wish. By Allah’s will I will intercede for whoever takes no partners with Allah.””
[Reported by Ahmad (20821)]

Maalik bin Al-Huwayrith (RadiyAllahu Anhu) reported:
“We came to the Messenger of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, and we were all young men of nearly equal ages. We stayed with him for twenty nights, and the Messenger of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, was extremely kind and tender-hearted.”

[Reported by Al-Bukhaari (628) and Muslim (674)]
