During the period in which he was the leader of the Muslim Ummah, Sayyiduna Mu‘aawiyah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) once had a peace treaty with the Romans. When the peace treaty was close to expiring, he prepared the Muslim army and began proceeding to the border of the Muslim and Roman lands. His intention was to cross the border and attack the very instant the treaty terminated. The Romans were unaware of this and would have been taken by utter surprise.

While Mu‘aawiyah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) was proceeding, he suddenly saw a man on horseback shouting, “Allahu Akbar! Fulfill the pledge! Don’t deceive!” When they looked, they saw that it was the Sahaabi, ‘Amr bin ‘Abasah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu). Mu‘aawiyah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) sent for him and when he arrived, he said to Mu‘aawiyah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu), “I heard Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) saying, ‘The one who has a treaty or pledge with a people should neither make any change to the pledge nor break it until it either terminates or he first informs them equally.”

Sayyidah ‘Aaishah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) narrates:

I once went with Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) on one of his journeys when I was still a young girl and light in weight. During the journey, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) instructed the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) saying, “Proceed ahead.” After the Sahaabah (radhiyallahu ‘anhum) had proceeded ahead (and we were now in seclusion), Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said to me, “Come! Let me race with you!” We therefore raced and I beat the Messenger of Allah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) in the race. On this occasion, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) did not say anything.

Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) narrates that he heard Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) saying:

There were three people from the Banu Israaeel whom Allah Ta‘ala decided to test; a leper, a bald man and a blind man. Allah Ta‘ala therefore sent an angel to them.

The angel came to the leper first and asked him, “What is most beloved to you?” The leper replied, “A good complexion and good skin, as the people detest me due to this illness.” The angel thus passed his hand over the leper, causing his leprosy to be removed and resulting in him being blessed with a good complexion and good skin. The angel thereafter asked him, “Which wealth is most beloved to you?” He replied, “Camels” The angel therefore granted him ten-month pregnant she-camels and said, “May you be blessed in this wealth.”

‘Ataa’ Sulami (rahimahullah) narrates the following:

I was once passing through the alleys of Kufah when I saw ‘Alyaan laughing at a doctor. As it was well known that ‘Alyaan never laughed, I became intrigued and drew closer. As I approached, I asked him why he was laughing. ‘Alyaan replied, “I am laughing at this doctor who is treating the illnesses of others, despite the fact that he is himself fatally ill.” Hearing this, I asked ‘Alyaan, “Do you know of any medication that can save him from his illness?” “Yes!” he replied, “I know of a medication which is such that if it is administered to him, I hope that he will recover.” “What is the formula of this medication?” I prompted. On my request, ‘Alyaan proceeded to prescribe the following:
