[The Words of The Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings upon him)
Compiled and edited by Kabir Helminski, from the reliable sources offered by Dr. M. Hafiz Syed.]

"I came to Medinah, and saw a man whose counsels men obeyed, and he never said anything but they obeyed him. I said, 'Who is this man?' They said, 'This is the Rasul of God.' Then I went to him and said, 'Give me advice.' Prophet Muhammad said, 'Abuse nobody.' And I never did abuse anybody after than, neither freeman nor slave, nor camel nor goat. And he added, 'And if a man abuse you, and reveal a vice which he knew in you then do not disclose one which you know in him.'"
