How did the Holy Prophet (pboh) display high moral standards in his life?
There is no high moral quality for the exercise of which God Almighty did not afford him an opportunity. All excellent moral qualities like bravery, generosity, steadfastness, forbearance, meekness, etc., were in his case so clearly established that it is not possible to seek his equal. It is also true that those who had carried their persecution of him to the extreme and had designed the destruction of Islam, were not left unpunished by God. To forgo chastisement in their case would have amounted to the destruction of the righteous under the heels of their enemies.
