the Blessed Messenger of Allah, Muhammad Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam cared for and fed an old blind Jewish beggar at the marketplace of Madinah al Munawwarah who was always cursing him based upon blind hatred and hearsay

When the Blessed Messenger passed away, his successor and Companion Caliph Abu Bakar tried to carry on doing the same after learning about it from his daughter Siti Aishah, widow of the Blessed Messenger

When Sayyidina Abu Bakar tried to feed the old blind Jew, the blind man, caught hold of Abu Bakar's hand and asked as to who he was?

Abu Bakar said that he was the same one who had been feeding him before. The blind man refuted that and said that the one who had fed him before had chewed the food well before feeding him

Abu Bakar broke down sobbing uncontrollably and confessed to the old blind Jew that it was the Blessed Prophet of Allah, Muhammad the Mercy of God for all creation who had been feeding the blind beggar all those years and now the prophet had passed away

The old blind Jew was shocked beyond belief and he cried out wail-fully that how wretched a person he was?

He had been cursing the prophet all those years and yet had been fed and nurtured by the very same prophet without a single retort or complaint against his cursing of him

The blind Jew attested that he was really very, very sorry and declared his Syahadah before Sayyidina Abu Bakar and became a believer

Allahuma Soli Alla Syedina Muhammad Wa Aala Alli Syedina Muhammad Wa Sohbihi Wasalim
