Anas reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, was the best of people, the most generous of people, and the most courageous of people. The people of Medina were frightened by a noise one night and some came out of their homes in the direction of the sound. They were met by the Prophet returning, as he had preceded them to where the sound come from. The Prophet was riding on the horse of Abu Talhah without a saddle and a sword around his neck, saying, “Do not be afraid! Do not be afraid!
