Surah At-Taubah, Ayat 128-129

Ayat 128. Verily, there has come unto you a Messenger (Muhammad  [SAWW](PBUH) from amongst yourselves (i.e. whom you know well). It grieves him that you should receive any injury or difficulty. He (Muhammad  [SAWW](PBUH)  is anxious over you (to be rightly guided, to repent to Allah, and beg Him to pardon and forgive your sins, in order that you may enter Paradise and be saved from the punishment of the Hell-fire), for the believers (he  [SAWW](PBUH) is) full of pity, kind, and merciful.
Ayat 129. But if they turn away, say (O Muhammad  [SAWW](PBUH): "Allah is sufficient for me. La ilaha illa Huwa (none has the right to be worshipped but He), in Him I put my trust and He is the Lord of the Mighty Throne."

Hazrat Ibn Masud`ud (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Prophet [SAWW](PBUH) said to me: "Recite the Qur'an to me". I said, "O Messenger of Allah! Shall I recite the Qur'an to you, when it has been revealed to you?'' He (PBUH) replied, "I love to hear it recited by others". So I recited to him a portion from Surat An-Nisa'. When I reached the Ayah: "How (will it be) then, when We bring from each nation a witness and We bring you (O Muhammad [SAWW](PBUH)) as a witness against these people (your Ummah)?". (4:41) He (PBUH) said, "Enough for now". When I looked at him I saw his eyes were shedding tears. [Al-Bukhari Hadith # 4582].  

Lesson : as mentioned above in Surah At-Taubah Ayat 128 "It grieves The Messenger of Allah  [SAWW](PBUH) that you should receive any injury or difficulty". This Hadith mentions infinite benevolence, generosity, kindness and regard of Prophet [SAWW](PBUH), for His Ummah, which is evident from the his passion,this hadith tells us that besides the recitation of Noble Quran, a Muslim should also listen to it from others so that he can contemplate further on it. It also makes one weep when one listens to the Noble Quran.
