Hadith on Teaching: The Prophet was a kind, patient teacher

Mu’awiyah ibn al-Hakam reported: I was praying with the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, while a man among the people sneezed, so I said, “May Allah have mercy on you!” The people began to glare at me in disapproval. When the Prophet finished the prayer, by my father and mother, I have not seen a better teacher before or after him. By Allah, the Prophet did not scold me, hit me, or revile me. The Prophet said, “Verily, it is not correct for this prayer to contain any human speech. Rather, only the glorification and exaltation of Allah, and the recitation of the Quran.”

عَنْ مُعَاوِيَةَ بْنِ الْحَكَمِ السُّلَمِيِّ قَالَ بَيْنَا أَنَا أُصَلِّي مَعَ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ إِذْ عَطَسَ رَجُلٌ مِنْ الْقَوْمِ فَقُلْتُ يَرْحَمُكَ اللَّهُ فَرَمَانِي الْقَوْمُ بِأَبْصَارِهِمْ فَلَمَّا صَلَّى رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ فَبِأَبِي هُوَ وَأُمِّي مَا رَأَيْتُ مُعَلِّمًا قَبْلَهُ وَلَا بَعْدَهُ أَحْسَنَ تَعْلِيمًا مِنْهُ فَوَاللَّهِ مَا كَهَرَنِي وَلَا ضَرَبَنِي وَلَا شَتَمَنِي قَالَ إِنَّ هَذِهِ الصَّلَاةَ لَا يَصْلُحُ فِيهَا شَيْءٌ مِنْ كَلَامِ النَّاسِ إِنَّمَا هُوَ التَّسْبِيحُ وَالتَّكْبِيرُ وَقِرَاءَةُ الْقُرْآنِ
