Describing the pious and unmatched life of the Prophet of Islam, the last and final Messenger of Allah (Subhaanahu Wa Ta’aalaa). Hadhrat Muhammad (SallAllaho Alaihe WaSallam) is incomplete without this Quraanic Aayah (Verse):
لَقَدْ كَانَ لَكُمْ فِي رَسُولِ اللَّهِ أُسْوَةٌ حَسَنَةٌ [الأحزاب: 21]
“Indeed in the Messenger of Allah (Muhammad) you have a good example.” (Al-Ahzaab 33:21)
Unassuming and humble personality
Prophet Muhammad (SallAllaho Alaihe WaSallam) had an unassuming personality which is hard to believe for an exceptional leader of die-hard followers. He used to sit among them, eat with them, and treat his Sahaabah (Companions) in a manner that if a stranger passes by, he was unable to perceive that the last Prophet Hadhrat Muhammad (SallAllaho Alaihe WaSallam) is staying there and participating in normal tasks with common men.
The pages of history and authentic sources tell us that even after the biggest conquests, Prophet Muhammad (SallAllaho Alaihe WaSallam) remained humble, as from the very beginning he was the defender of downtrodden.
Never harsh throughout his life
He was never tough to anyone he encountered. He never expressed any awful words to anyone he met. He hated for the sake of Allah (Subhaanahu Wa Ta’aalaa) and loved for the sake of Allah (Subhaanahu Wa Ta’aalaa). There is a Hadeeth that explains well how the Prophet of Islam (SallAllaho Alaihe WaSallam) guided his Sahaabah, in particular and his Ummah, in general. Prophet Muhammad (SallAllaho Alaihe WaSallam) said: “Do not be people without minds of your own, saying that if others treat you well you will treat them well and that if they do wrong you will do wrong. But (instead) accustom yourselves to do good if people do good and not to do wrong if they do evil.” (At-Tirmizi)
Used to accomplish his work without other’s help
He used to fulfill his own needs without the help of anyone else. He tailored his garments and fix his footwear on his own whenever needed. His beloved wife and Mother of Believers, Hadhrat Ayeshah, is reported to have said: “He did at his home what one of you would do in your house. He mended sandals and patched garments and sewed.” (Adab Al-Mufrad)
Dealing with Sahaabah
He used to deal with his Sahaabah individually in their affairs. That is the reason every one of the Sahaabah feels that he was the closest person to him.
Established the rights of woman folk
The Prophet Muhammad (SallAllaho Alaihe WaSallam) told what rights Islam gives to the female segment of human society. Before him, the women were facing terrible behavior by male dominated society. There was no understanding of rights of women. Islam gave respect to them. Islam categorized women into respected mothers, sisters, daughters, and wives and defined their proper place and value according to their status. Islam is the only religion, giving complete rights to women from their birth until the last day of their lives.
Established the rights of animals
The Prophet Muhammad (SallAllaho Alaihe WaSallam) restricted the maltreatment of animals. He said that the person who slaughters an animal for sport is reviled. He likewise chastised individuals who over-burden their ponies or camels and advised them to “Fear Allah concerning these creatures that can’t speak.” (Abu Daawood)
The very special nature of his name
His name is one of the most well-known names on the planet. Muhammad is the name that was never given to anyone before him. It is, now, among the main 10 most mainstream names in the UK and the top 50 around the world.
To put it, regardless of whichever social status it is, whatever circumstance of life it is, a Muslim is to turn towards the character of the Prophet Hadhrat Muhammad (SallAllaho Alaihe WaSallam) and locate that specific bit of direction from it. Muslims must practice and spread the life of Prophet (SallAllaho Alaihe WaSallam) because it isn’t just useful for Muslims; rather the generosity that originates from it has an all-inclusive intrigue and will help improve the world to be a wonderful place to live in.
