Hadith 10: Gentle Conduct and Meanness
Imam Muhammad said, “Abu Hanifah informed us saying, “Ayyub ibn Aidh narrated to us from Mujahid who ascribed it directly to the Prophet as a marfu hadith that he (peace be upon him) said,
If people were to look at the quality of gentleness, they would not see any more beautiful creation of Allah. If they were to look at evil disposition, they would not se any uglier creation of Allah.“
