Three things emerge from what Almighty Allah has imparted in the above passage. Firstly, that the Prophet was born orphan and poor so that the orphan and the poor may not be looked down by any one, as the highest dignitary of the world viz Hazrat Mohammed (Peace be upon him) himself was an orphan. Secondly, that the orphans and the poor should be helped in their distress and none should be harsh or repulsive to them.
