Valley of Sheep

Everybody knows that the Prophet (s.a.w.*) is a very generous man. The Prophet’s generosity was certainly overwhelming for some of his followers too.

After the batttle of Hunayn, there were plenty of booty gathered from the spoils of war. The booty included animals belonging to the enemy troops.flock-of-sheep

The Prophet (s.a.w.) was happily standing on a hill and right beside him was a Bedouin. They were both looking at a valley which is seemingly full of sheep.

These sheep had now belonged to the Muslims. Indeed, there were hundreds and hundreds of sheep in front of them. The Bedouin probably had never seen so much sheep in his life. He was very amazed at the sight.

The Prophet  (s.a.w.) noticed his awe and asked him, “Do you like it?”

The man looked at the Prophet astonishingly and said, “Yes.”

The Prophet said, “Then, they are yours.”

The man could not believe his eyes nor ears. He was so surprised that his jaw almost touched the ground!

He went home running back to his tribe. He said to them,”O people. Come and accept Islam. Come and join this great religion because Muhammad gives like a person who does not fear poverty!” sheep cute
