He was a man who could have lived as a king, but instead chose a life more humble than any that we live today. The Prophet ﷺ was often hungry and had very few material goods, but he was content with choosing the next life over this one.
At the loss of his only child in Islam, the Prophet’s ﷺ grief was deep. He wept and he felt sadness, just as the rest of us do. But even in his grief, he taught us to be patient and to say only that which pleases Allah.
