The Coolest Husband Ever (Hadith No. 2158)

Bismillah.

Volume 3, Book 43, Number 661:
Narrated Anas (radiallaahu `anhu):
While the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) was with one of his wives, one of the mothers of the believers (i.e. one of his wives) sent a wooden bowl containing food with a servant. The wife (in whose house he was sitting) struck the bowl with her hand and broke it. The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) collected the shattered pieces and put the food back in it and said, “Eat.” He kept the servant and the bowl till he had eaten the food. Then the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) gave another unbroken bowl to the servant and kept the broken one.

In another version (Volume 7, Book 62, Number 152), he said to the Companions who were present at the scene: “Your mother (my wife) felt jealous.”

This, to me, is mind-boggling. How can someone react so calmly to such a situation? If we suppose he kept his cool so as to not make a scene in front of the guests (like we do), why didn’t he give a deathly stare to Ayesha (radiallaahu `anhaa) that said, “I’ll deal with you later”? Yes, it was Ayesha (radiallaahu `anhaa) who broke the bowl having overcome by jealousy (like, ‘how dare she send food for him in my house?’).

Well, it’s simple. He understood the emotion behind Ayesha’s action and didn’t blame her for it. This shows how understanding and considerate he was of other people’s feelings. She didn’t praise his character for no reason.

P.S. note how he sends an unbroken, sound bowl back to the one who sent the food, so as to not let the matter get worse. If you accidentally break/damage someone’s property, you may return its worth in cash or thing, which means, you send them one of your own, if they’re alike in quality and cost, or buy them a new one.
