The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

Ibn Umar narrates:

"We were with the Messenger of Allah (pbuh) in one of the expeditions. We stopped by a tribe. He asked them,

"Who are you?"

"We are Muslims," they said.

A woman was busy with putting wood into the oven in the ground and she had her son with her. When the flames rose, she moved her son away. Then, the woman approached the Messenger of Allah (pbuh) and said,

"You are the Messenger of Allah. Is that right?" The Messenger of Allah (pbuh) said,

"Yes!" The woman said,

"May my mother and father be sacrificed for you! Is Allah not the most merciful of the merciful?" The Prophet (pbuh) said,

"Yes!" The woman said,

"Is the mercy of Allah to His slaves not more than the mercy of a mother to her child?" The Prophet (pbuh) said,

"Yes, definitely!" The woman said,

"A woman will never throw her child into fire. How will Allah, who is more merciful, will throw His slaves into fire?"

Thereupon, the Prophet (pbuh) lowered his head crying. Then, he raised his head and said,

"Doubtlessly, Allah will not punish His slaves except the ones who deviate from the right path, who do not obey Him and who avoid uttering kalima at-tawhid."
