The Sour Grapes

image

One day a poor man brought a bunch of grapes to the holy prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon Him) as a gift.
The holy prophet (pbuh) ate one, two, three and then the whole bunch  of grapes by himself. He did not offer grapes to anyone present:?. The poor man who brought those grapes was very pleased:) and left💃. One of the campanions asked, “O prophet of Allah (pbuh) ! How come you ate all the grapes by yourself and did not offer to any one of us present? 😦
The holy Prophet (pbuh) smiled:)and said, “I ate all the grapes by myself because the grapes were sour. If i would have offered you, you might have made funny facee and that would have hurt the feelings of that poor man. I thought to myself that it’s better that i eat all of them cheerfully and please the poor man. I did not want to hurt the feelings of that poor man.”

Such were the manners of this most noble prophet of Allah.
