Abasa V.1-42

The Blind Man

The Prophet frowned and turned away
Because there came to him the blind man, [interrupting].
But what would make you perceive, [O Muhammad], that perhaps he might be purified
Or be reminded and the remembrance would benefit him? [Abasa:1-4]

There are many lessons to be learnt in this surah. I feel we should take the most we can because the Prophet (saw) was corrected in this verse. We see that firstly Qur’an could not be written by the Prophet (saw) because he would not write his faults. Secondly, the Prophet (saw) did not even turn away from the blind man that came he just frowned slightly because he was doing dawah to a tribe of Quraysh leaders and the blind man was already Muslim. However, he is corrected by Allah (swt). What we learn for ourselves is that we do not know who will take the benefit from our words, from teaching them about Islam. We should not turn away from anyone who wants to know about Islam for those who couldn’t care less. The man was blind and did not see the Prophet (saw) frown but Allah (swt) still corrected the reaction because it was not the utmost highest.
I learnt that if we are telling others about Islam then our actions need to be the best because the slightest improper action can have the greatest affect on the other.
