"And We have not sent you but as a mercy to the worlds" Quran, 21:107 (The Prophets)DOWNLOAD THE BOOK
" My similitude in comparison with other prophets before me, is that of a man who built and completed a house except for one missing brick. When people see the house, they admire its beauty and say: How splendid the house will be if the missing brick is put in its place! So I am that brick, and I am the last of the Prophets."(Narrated by Bukhari 4.734, 4.735)
His name is Muhammad son of Abdullah son of Abdul-Muttalib (ancestry reaches back to the Prophet Ishmael son of Prophet Abraham).
He was from Bani-Hashim family (Bani-Hashim was from Quraysh, a tribe that was highly ranked in Arabia), Born in Mecca (Makkah) – Arabian Peninsula (currently in Saudi Arabia) on 20th - 22nd April, 570 CE 1 Approximately.
Muhammad Died in Madinah (about 400 km north of Makkah) on 6th June, 632 CE. (Approximately, he was 63 years old when he passed away)
Muhammad was an Arab of noble lineage with a white complexion and a rosy tinge. He was a little taller than average and well built with broad shoulders. His belly never protruded out from his chest. He walked briskly and frmly. Muhammad’s companions described him as a handsome person with prominent forehead, high tipped nose, long eyelashes, large black eyes with well set teeth and a pleasant smil...
Muhammad was unfailingly cheerful, easy going by nature, and mild mannered. He never resorted to oﬀensive speech or obscenities. He did not fnd fault with others nor did he overly praise the others.
Muhammad did not speak unnecessarily and what he said was always to the point and without any padding. His sayings were precise and concise having complete meaning in few words. He spoke with excellence, and there was no excess in it and no abnormal brevity. When he emphasized a point, he used to repeat it three times with a gesture. He spoke of nothing unless he hoped a reward from God for it. He...
Muhammad kept his feelings under frm control. When annoyed, he would turn aside or keep silent. When someone committed an act that violates God’s law, he used to show serious anger and a frm stand. No one would stand against his anger in matters of the Lord’s truth being opposed, he would stand fast in protecting the truth as revealed in the Quran. Muhammad never got angry for his own sake.
Muhammad était toujours le premier à saluer les autres et il ne retirait jamais sa main après avoir serré la main de l’autre, avant que l’autre personne ne le fasse. À peine l’avait-on rencontré qu’on l’admirait et le respectait immédiatement. Ceux qui le connaissaient familièrement l’aimaient. Il était doux de nature. Il était ni grossier ni dédaigneux envers quiconque. Lorsqu’il regardait les au...
Everything he did was in moderation, without excess or contrariness. He never criticized the food or drink that was prepared for him, nor did he overly praise it. When at home, he would divide his time into three parts: One for God, one for his family, and one for himself. He always joined in household work and would at times mend his clothes, repair his shoes and sweep the ﬂoor. He used to dress...
The Islamic Civilization
Muhammad didn’t know that he would be a Prophet: He Muhammad called for maintaining the right balance between materialism and spiritualism. He taught his followers that the needs of body and soul must be satisfied but in the right balance and in lawful ways.
He encouraged people to take religion as a motivator for a better way of life which adds value to their bodies and souls.
Muhammad’s sayings and teachings are highly influential as they cover most aspects of life: spirituality, morals, social matters, commerce, and more. His sayings emanate from a base of wisdom and divine revelation.
Whoever believes in Allah and the Day of Judgment should say good (words) or keep silent and whoever believes in Allah and the Day of Judgment must honor (be generous with) his neighbor and whoever believes in Allah and the Day of Judgment must honor (be generous with) his guest."(Bukhari, 6018 & Muslim 74-47)
A strong person is not the one who throws his adversaries to the ground. A strong person is he who contains himself when he is angry."(Bukhaari, 5785) and (Muslim, 4853)
Goodness (rightness) is good morality; and sin (misdeed) is what embarrasses you (i.e. you are not comfortable within yourself ) and you hate it to be known by others."(Muslim, 15/2553)
"Fear Allah wherever you are, follow a bad deed with a good deed as it erases it, and deal with people with high ethics.(Tirmithi - 1987 & Ahmad 5/153)
When a man dies, he gains no rewards except from three things; in case he had dedicated a charity that people can continuously profit from, or he had left knowledge or a science that benefits the humanity, or if he had left a good (faithful) son who keeps on praying and asking God's blessings and forgiveness for his parents." (This is applicable to both males and females(Narrated by Muslim, Tirmithi, Nassa’i)
"Every Muslim should pay Sadaqa (spend something for charity), if he didn’t find what to spend then let him work in order to benefit himself and be able to pay charity, if he didn’t find a job, then let him help others (this is an act of charity), if he didn’t find anyone to help, let him do good deeds and refrain from (avoid) doing bad or evil deeds. This is a charity for him.(Bukhari, 1445/30)
You will not be a believer in God unless you like for your brethren what you like for yourself.(Bukhari, 13/7)
"Those who do honest trading and business based on clear terms, God blesses them and their business (trade). On the contrary, God does not bless those who lie and hide facts.(Bukhari, 2082/22)
Make things easy to people (concerning religious matters), and do not make it hard for them; give them good tidings and do not make them run away.(Bukhari, 69/11)
Envy is forbidden except in two cases (you wish to have the same thing others have but no bad wishes to them) . The first one is a man on whom God bestowed wealth and he spends it righteously. The second case is a man on whom God bestowed wisdom and he acts according to it and teaches it to others."(Bukhari, 73/15)
"Two graces, many people underestimate; health and free (leisure) time.(Bukhaari, 6049)
"The perfect believers are those who have the best manners."(Narrated by Tirmithi)
Many scholars believe that Muhammad’s mission to convey God’s Message and bring people to monotheism was harder than the mission of many messengers and prophets before him. The main miracle he brought was the Quran, which was a book recited in original Arabic as a divine revelation from God."Will they not ponder on the Quran? If it had been from other than Allah they would have found therein much incongruity (inconsistency)." Te Quran, 4:82
When a man dies, he gains no rewards except from three things; in case he had dedicated a charity that people can continuously profit from, or he had left knowledge or a science that benefits the humanity, or if he had left a good (faithful) son who keeps on praying and asking God's blessings and forgiveness for his parents."
“Leadership glimpsed more than once in the life of the Prophet Muhammad accords well with what we know to be the universal truth about the nature and practice of leadership. You will judge for yourself how close Muhammad comes to this ideal
“His readiness to undergo persecutions for his beliefs, the high moral character of the men who believed in him and looked up to him as a leader, and the greatness of his ultimate achievement - all argue his fundamental integrity. None of the great fgures of history is so poorly appreciated in the West as Muhammad....
“I wanted to know the best one who holds today undisputed sway (controlling inﬂuence) over the hearts of millions of mankind. I became more than convinced that it was not the sword that won a place for Islam in those days in the scheme of life. It was the rigid simplicity, the utter self-eﬀacement (humbleness) of P...
His name, meaning, “highly praised,” lent itself well to certain Biblical passages as predicting his advent. Muhammad was never known to write anything himself. His apparent illiteracy did not prevent him from reciting the Quran which is the most famous and eloquent book in the Arabic tongue
“Philosopher, orator, apostle, legislator, warrior, conqueror of ideas, restorer of rational dogmas, of a cult without images; That is Muhammad. As regards all standards by which human greatness may be measured, we may well ask, is there any man greater than him?.”
“He is a prophet and not a poet and therefore his Quran is to be seen as Divine Law and not as a book of a human being made for education or entertainment.
