HADITH OF THE DAY:
A MERCY TO MANKIND
When someone asked the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) to curse the idolators, he replied:
"I have not been sent to invoke curses, but I have been sent as a mercy (to mankind)."
Sahih Muslim, Hadith 1192
A man once asked the Prophet to curse a rival tribe. The Prophet turned away from him twice and then said:
"May God show mercy to (the rival tribe). Their mouths speak peace, their hands provide food and they are people of security and faith."
Al-Tirmidhi, Hadith 1548
