A Mercy for the Believers .
The Messenger’s compassion towards the believers was of the utmost degree. The Quran describes his compassion in the following verse, which means :
“There has certainly come to you a Messenger from among yourselves. Grievous to him is what you suffer; [he is] concerned over you [i.e., your guidance] and to the believers is kind and merciful.”
Sa‘d bin ‘Ubaadah once became ill, so Allah's Messenger (peace be upon him) visited him in his house. On seeing his faithful Companion in a pitiful state, he was moved to tears.
Then, he said:
"Allah does not punish because of tears, nor because of grief, but he punishes because of this." and he pointed to his tongue.
