HELP IN NEED

In the name of allah...
HELP IN NEED
His kind heart never allowed him to stay idle when some one was suffering.
Two men were wrangling before the house of the Prophet. They were very noisy. One of them was asking for a discount from the creditor and also was requesting him to be polite. The other one said, ”By God I will niether discount nor be polite with you.” On hearing this, the Prophet came out of his house and inquired, ”Who is it that promised by God not to do good things?” The man replied, "Oh! Messenger of God. Yes I am the one. I will do as he wants me to do.” 
Buhari
He could not tolerate even some one vowing not to help someone else in desperation.
If two people wrangle over before a palace, the king would order to chase them away at once. But this Man Supreme investigates the reason for the fight and takes the side of the weaker one to bring justice. In another incident;
In the mosque I asked Ibn Abi Hadrad (May God be pleased with his deeds) to pay the debts which he owed to me and our voices grew louder. God’s Apostle heard that while he was in his house. So he came to us raising the curtain of his room and said, “O Ka’b!” I replied, “Labaik, O God’s Apostle!” He said, “O Ka’b! Reduce your debt to one half,” gesturing with his hand. I said, “O God’s Apostle! I have done so.” Then God’s Apostle said (to Ibn Abi Hadrad), “Get up and pay the debt to him.”
Buhari 1.447
The Prophet (peace be upon him) finds the creditor quite sound in finance but the doctor in misery being unable to pay back his loan. Understanding the creditor’s capability the Prophet (peace be upon him) intercedes him to waive off half of the amount.
Ordinary people like us would simply ignore this kind of disputes arising out of transactions and the notables would simply call it as just the waste of time and disappear from the scene.
But the Man Supreme, who was both a great emperor and a unique spiritual leader, at the sight of a man struggling miserably to pay back his debt, backs him up and helps him too. He does not give false tradition and let people in trouble suffer. He was very firm that religious belief should never be a hindrance against helping the people.
Abu Moosa says;
There were good relations and brotherhood between this tribe of Jurm and the Ash’ariyyin. Once, while we were sitting with Abu Musa Al-Ash’ari (May God be pleased with his deeds) , there was brought to him a meal which contained chicken meat, and there was sitting beside him, a man from the tribe of Bani Taimul-lah who looked like one of the Mawali. Abu Musa (May God be pleased with his deeds) invited the man to eat but the man said, “I have seen chicken eating some dirty things, and I have taken an oath not to eat chicken.” Abu Musa said to him, “Come along, let me tell you something in this regard. Once I went to the Prophet with a few men from Ash’ariyyin and we asked him for mounts. The Prophet said, ‘By God, I will not mount you on anything; besides I do not have anything to mount you on.’ Then a few camels from the war booty were brought to the Prophet, and he asked about us, saying, ‘Where are the group of Ash’ariyyin?’ So he ordered for five fat camels to be given to us and then we set out. We said, ‘What have we done? God’s Apostle took an oath that he would not give us anything to ride and that he had nothing for us to ride, yet he provided us with mounts. We made God’s Apostle forget his oath! By God, we will never be successful.’ So we returned to him and reminded him of his oath. He said, ‘I have not provided you with the mount, but God has done so. By God, I may take an oath to do something, but on finding something else which is better, I do that which is better and make the expiation for my oath.’ “Buhari: 9.644
The Man Supreme went to that extent to even break a promise to help. Whereas people now have developed many traditional shields based on false hopes in order to evade helping. There is some superstitious tradition among some nations. If any one asks them for some financial help, supposedly in a night, they would say that it is not right to transact money in night and they say it is a bad omen that money leaves home in the night. And the time now is not good time to part with money. This only reveals the dishonesty of the people who have invented this tradition to escape from helping others with money. In this incident the Man Supreme promises not to lend camels to people who asked for it. Camels arrive right then. The Prophet (peace be upon him) sees this. At once he recalls the people in need of camels. They actually did not ask for the camels for the second time.
The people would have this excuse to argue that he had made a promise not to give them because there were no camels when they asked for it. Now also he cannot give them the camels because he had made a promise.
He gave them the camels for the fact that it is not necessary to keep the promise made in the name of God if the promise hinders one from helping others. When the people asked him whether he had forgotten the promise he made with God before helping them with camels, he said, “ I knew it when I made this mistake. You should use God’s name only when you do the right things. You should not use His name when you are doing the wrong things. If you have promised to do wrong thing you need not adhere to it. You should do a righteous thing better than that. This is my position.” Usually the leaders don’t care for public opinion. But, having made up their mind in advance they would pretend to consult the public for opinions to come to a consensus. When people raise their objection the leaders turn this into their favour. This is how the assemblies and councils function nowadays.
