Manners (Hadith No. 218)
Hadith no. 217 is a repeat. Read it here.
Narrated Anas bin Malik:
The Prophet saw a Bedouin urinating in the mosque and told the people not to disturb him. When he finished, the Prophet asked for some water and poured it over (the urine).
You see that a lot nowadays? I don’t think so.
Check out the Prophet (SAW)’s wisdom here. He doesn’t disturb the person urinating because that’ll be dangerous for him psychologically. And when he’s done, instead of rebuking him, he pours water over it himself! He doesn’t scold him for doing it because he was a Bedouin. He didn’t know that urinating in a mosque is a bad thing.
Lesson: give margin to others.
