Al-Harith bin Hisham asked Allah's Apostle (peace and blessings of Allah swt be upon him) "O Allah's Apostle! How is the Divine Inspiration revealed to you?" Allah's Apostle (peace and blessings of Allah swt be upon him) replied, "Sometimes it is (revealed) like the ringing of a bell, this form of Inspiration is the hardest of all and then this state passes off after I have grasped what is inspired. Sometimes the Angel comes in the form of a man and talks to me and I grasp whatever he says."
Aisha (may Allah swt please with her) added: Verily I saw the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah swt be upon him) being inspired Divinely on a very cold day and noticed the sweat dropping from his forehead (as the Inspiration was over).

Narrated 'Abdullah (may Allah swt be pleased with him):
I visited the Prophet (may peace and blessings of Allah swt shower on him) during his ailments and he was suffering from a high fever. I said, "You have a high fever. Is it because you will have a double reward for it?" He said, "Yes, for no Muslim is afflicted with any harm but that Allah will remove his sins as the leaves of a tree fall down."
Bukhari :: Book 7 :: Volume 70 :: Hadith 550
Narrated Abu Huraira (may Allah swt be pleased with him):
Allah's Apostle (may peace and blessings of Allah swt shower on him) said, "The example of a believer is that of a fresh tender plant; from whatever direction the wind comes, it bends it, but when the wind becomes quiet, it becomes straight again. Similarly, a believer is afflicted with calamities (but he remains patient till Allah removes his difficulties.) And an impious wicked person is like a pine tree which keeps hard and straight till Allah cuts (breaks) it down when He wishes."
Bukhari :: Book 7 :: Volume 70 :: Hadith 547
Narrated Abu Qatada Al-Ansari:
Allah's Apostle (peace and blessings of Allah swt be upon him) was praying and he was carrying Umama the daughters of Zainab, the daughter of Allah's Apostle (peace and blessings of Allah swt be upon him) and she was the daughter of 'As bin Rabi'a bin 'AbduShams. When he (the prophet) prostrated, he put her down and when he stood, he carried her (on his neck).

The actions of people are presented twice each week, on Monday and Thursday. Every trusting slave is forgiven except for a slave who has enmity between him and his brother. It is said, 'Leave these two until they turn in tawba (repentence). Leave these two until they turn in tawba (repentence).'

A man came to the Prophet while he was delivering the sermon and asked him how to offer the night prayers. The Prophet replied, 'Pray two Rakat at a time and then two and then two and so on and if you are afraid of dawn (the approach of the time of the Fajr prayer) pray one Rak'a and that will be the wit'r for all the Rakat which you have prayed."
Bukhari :: Book 1 :: Volume 8 :: Hadith 462
Narrated Abu Waqid al-Laithi:
While Allah's Apostle was sitting in the mosque (with some people) three men came, two of them came in front of Allah's Apostle and the third one went away, and then one of them found a place in the circle and sat there while the second man sat behind the gathering, and the third one went away. When Allah's Apostle finished his preaching, he said, "Shall I tell you about these three persons? One of them betook himself to Allah and so Allah accepted him and accommodated him; the second felt shy before Allah so Allah did the same for him and sheltered him in His Mercy (and did not punish him), while the third turned his face from Allah, and went away, so Allah turned His face from him likewise.
Bukhari :: Book 1 :: Volume 8 :: Hadith 463
Narrated Ibn 'Umar or Ibn 'Amr (may Allah please with him):
The Prophet clasped his hands, by interlacing his fingers. Narrated 'Abdullah that Allah's Apostle said, "O 'Abdullah bin 'Amr! What will be your condition when you will be left with the sediments of (worst) people?" (They will be in conflict with each other).

Allah will give shade to seven on the Day when there will be no shade but His. [These seven persons are:]
- a just ruler,
- a youth who has been brought up in the worship of Allah (i.e. worships Allah sincerely from childhood),
- a man whose heart is attached to the mosques (i.e. to pray the compulsory prayers in the mosque in congregation),
- two persons who love each other only for Allah's sake and they meet and part in Allah's cause only,
- a man who refuses the call of a charming woman of noble birth for illicit intercourse with her and says: I am afraid of Allah,
- a man who gives charitable gifts so secretly that his left hand does not know what his right hand has given (i.e. nobody knows how much he has given in charity),- and a person who remembers Allah in seclusion and his eyes are then flooded with tears.

Narrated Marwan bin Al-Hakam and Al-Miswar bin Makhrama:
When the delegates of the tribe of Hawazin came to the Prophet they requested him to return their property and their captives. He said to them, "This concerns also other people along with me as you see, and the best statement to me is the true one, so you may choose one of two alternatives; either the captives or the property and (I have not distributed the booty for) I have been waiting for you."
When the Prophet had returned from Ta'if, he waited for them for more than ten nights. When they came to know that the Prophet would not return except one of the two, they chose their captives. The Prophet then stood up amongst the Muslims, Glorified and Praised Allah as He deserved, and then said, "Then after: These brothers of yours have come to you with repentance and I see it proper to return their captives, so whoever amongst you likes to do that as a favor, then he can do it, and whoever of you wants to stick to his share till we pay him from the very first Fai (i.e. war booty) which Allah will give us, then he can do so." The people said, "We return (the captives) to them willingly as a favor, O Allah's Apostle!" The Prophet said, "I do not know who of you has given his consent and who has not; so go back and your leaders may present your decision to me." The people went away, and their leaders discussed the matter with them, and then came to the Prophet to tell him that all of them had given their consent (to return the captives) willingly.
