Did a jewish lady used to throw trash at the Prophet’s house ?

  • Status : NO SOURCE

Prophet Muhammad had a Jewish neighbour and this person used to every morning throw his garbage at the door step of the Prophet’s home. The Prophet would then pick it up and throw it in the disposal area along with his personal trash. One morning the Prophet didn’t see any garbage on his door step and he didn’t really care much about it. The next morning same thing and so on, until a week passed by without any garbage being put on the Prophet’s door step. So our Prophet went to that Jewish neighbor and paid him a visit to check on him. The Jewish neighbor was sick and he was in bed. Our Prophet then started taking care of his Jewish neighbor and the Jewish very soon embraced Islam because of our beloved Prophet’s high morals.

Yes, the character of the Prophet [‘alayhis salatu was salam] was sublime, full of compassion towards muslims; he is even described by Allah Himself as a Mercy to all the worlds.

Unfortunately, there was more than one person who threw refuse and waste on the doorstep of the Holy Prophet [sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam].

It appears the aforementioned story is widely circulated in order to illustrate the Prophet [sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam]’s gentleness. This story however has no basis. How could it be that the Sahabah would tolerate such a daily disrespect when they loved Him the most.

There is nonetheless a story narrated in Bukhari by Anas bin Malik about a Jewish boy who used to serve the Prophet ﷺ, and he fell sick. The Prophet ﷺ came to visit him; he sat by his head and said, ‘Become Muslim.’ The boy looked at his father, who was present, and he (the father) said: ‘Obey Abu’l-Qaasim ﷺ.’ So he became Muslim, and the Prophet ﷺ left, saying, ‘Praise be to Allaah Who has saved him from the Fire.’”

Thus this story that has no reference cannot be qualified to be a hadith.

There are many true accounts of abuses which were followed by displays of the Prophet [sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam]’s clemency and noble character and indeed, people’s hearts would change and they would come to faith.
