“AI would never see The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him,except with a smile on his face” (Sahih Muslim)

THE WOMAN AND THE PROPHET: Narrated Um Hani: (the daughter of Abu Talib) I visited Allah’s Apostle in the year of the Opening of Mecca and found him taking a bath, and his daughter, Fatima was screening him. When I greeted him, He said, “Who is it?” I replied, “I am Um Hani, the daughter of Abu Talib.” He said, “Welcome, O Um Hani ! ” When the Prophet had finished his bath, he stood up and offered eight Rakat of prayer while he was wrapped in a single garment. When he had finished his prayer, I said, “O Allah’s Apostle! My maternal brother assumes (or claims) that he will take revenge on the person  whom i have given protection. ” Allah’s Apostle said, “O Um Hani! We have given Peace and Protection to whom You have given.” (Bukhari :Good Manners and Form (Al-Adab)
