Real Father

There was a teen servant in the house of Khadija whose name was Zayd


There was a teen servant in the house of Khadija whose name was Zayd. Khadija granted Zayd to her husband 'Muhammad', following Mohammad`s request.

Prophet Muhammad freed Zayd and adopted him as his son. After not a long time, Zayd`s real father who was very upset in his absence found that he is in Mecca and in the house of Muhammad. He came to Mecca and asked Muhammad to let his son go back home with him.

Prophet Muhammad told Zayd: "It is all up to you. You may whether stay with us, or go back home with your father". Zayd replied: "I want to stay with you, if you let me". So he chose to stay with his godfather, Muhammad.

This was happened before Muhammad`s call of prophecy, and it is a clear evidence of Muhammad`s noble behavior in his daily life; so that Zayd preferred him to his-own real father!
