The blind man prayed, “O Allah! Open my eyes for the sake of this shirt. ” His two eyes opened at once. He sprang down to Rasûlullah’s ‘sall-Allâhu alaihi wa sallam’ feet. Then Rasûlullah ‘sall-Allâhu alaihi wa sallam’ left the place. He bought a robe for one dirham. As he was going to buy food with the other dirham, he saw a maid weeping. He asked “Why are you crying, daughter?” She said, “I am a Jew’s maid. He gave me one dirhem and told me to buy a bottle for half a dirhem and olive oil with the remaining half, I bought them. But as I was going back, I dropped the bottle. Both the bottle and the oil are gone, I don’t know what to do now. ”

Rasûlullah ‘sall-Allâhu alaihi wa sallam’ gave his last dirhem to the girl. He said, “Buy the bottle and the oil with this and take them home. ” But the poor girl said, “I am afraid the Jew will beat me for being late. ” Rasûlullah ‘sall-Allâhu alaihi wa sallam’ said, “Don’t be afraid! I will go with you and tell him not to beat you. ” So they went to the Jew’s house and knocked at the door. The Jew opened the door and was bewildered to see Rasûlullah ‘sall-Allâhu alaihi wa sallam’ who then told him what had happened and interceded for the girl. The Jew sprang down to Rasûlullah’s ‘sall-Allâhu alaihi wa sallam’ feet and supplicated. “O the great Prophet ‘sall-Allâhu alaihi wa sallam’, who is loved and honoured above all by thousands of people! Thousands of lions are awaiting to do your commands. And you honour the door of a wretched person like me for a maid’s sake. O Rasûlallah ‘sall-Allâhu alaihi wa sallam’! I have emancipated this girl for your honour’s sake. Teach me îmân and Islam. Let me become a Muslim in your presence. ” Rasûlullah ‘sall-Allâhu alaihi wa sallam’ taught him Islam. He was converted to Islam.

He went back into his house and told his household what had happened. They all became Muslims, too. All these were the fruits of Rasûlullah’s ‘sall-Allâhu alaihi wa sallam’ beautiful habits.
