ANECDOTE FROM THE LIFE OF THE PROPHET MOHAMMED
William Le Page
'O Mohammed, who is there now to save you?' cried the man.
'God,' answered Mohammed.
Duthur dropped his sword. Mohammed seized it, and cried in turn: 'O Duthur, who is there now to save you?'
'No one,' replied Duthur.
'Then learn from me to be merciful,' said Mohammed, and handed him back the weapon. Duthur became one of his firmest lovers.
