Hadith on Muhammad: The Prophet is gentle to a demanding bedouin

Anas ibn Malik reported: The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, was merciful. No one came to him in need but that he would promise him and follow through if he could. The prayer was commenced and a bedouin came, taking hold of the Prophet’s shirt and saying, “I still have needs!” The man had frightened the Prophet’s wives but the Prophet went with him until his need was met, then he returned and prayed.

عَنْ أَنَسٍ قال‏ كَانَ النَّبِيُّ صلى الله عليه وسلم رَحِيمًا وَكَانَ لاَ يَأْتِيهِ أَحَدٌ إِلاَّ وَعَدَهُ وَأَنْجَزَ لَهُ إِنْ كَانَ عِنْدَهُ وَأُقِيمَتِ الصَّلاَةُ وَجَاءَهُ أَعْرَابِيٌّ فَأَخَذَ بِثَوْبِهِ فَقَالَ‏ إِنَّمَا بَقِيَ مِنْ حَاجَتِي يَسِيرَةٌ وَأَخَافُ أَنْسَاهَا فَقَامَ مَعَهُ حَتَّى فَرَغَ مِنْ حَاجَتِهِ ثُمَّ أَقْبَلَ فَصَلَّى
