PROPHET MUHAMMAD (PBUH) BIOGRAPHY: THE MODEL OF GOODNESS


The behavior and personality of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) are the best examples to follow in Life. A companion of his, who spent full ten years with him, has said:

"Throughout my stay with him I never heard an indecent word from his lips and never found him rude to anyone. Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) spoke very politely. Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) was kind to everyone."

Although Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) was the Prophet of Allah and had been appointed by Allah to guide the people, yet he was not ashamed of doing his work with his own hands. Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) assisted the members of his family in household work and performed the jobs of other persons with great pleasure. Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) mended his clothes and shoes. He also took part in the construction of Masjid al-Nabi in Medina along with his companions.

His dress was always clean, though simple. Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) was very mindful of cleanliness. Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) washed his hands and mouth before and after taking his meals.

Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) was so kind and generous that he never refused a reasonable request of any person. Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) often distributed edibles among others and went without meals himself. Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) always helped the needy and the poor and went to the houses of the sick to enquire after their health.

Whenever he met anyone he said, 'Salamun Alaikum'. Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) always spoke with a smiling face.

Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) was a model of all the virtues and qualities of a believer described in the Noble Qur'an. None can describe him better than Allah who has said he possessed the noblest character.

"Certainly you have in the Messenger of Allah an excellent exemplar for him who hopes in Allah and the latter day and remembers Allah much." Noble Qur'an (33:21)

"And thou (Muhammad) (standest) on an exalted standard of character." Noble Qur'an (68:4)

"And We have not sent you but as a mercy to the worlds." Noble Qur'an (21:107)

Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) has said, "I have been sent only for the purpose of perfecting good morals".

Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) has said, "The best of you are those who have the best morals".

Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) has said, "You cannot treat people by means of your wealth; hence, you should treat them by means of your moral conduct".

Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) has said, "The most (important) things that cause people to reach Heaven are divine piety and a good temper".


PROPHET MUHAMMAD (PBUH) BIOGRAPHY: KINDNESS AND FORGIVENESS




More than 1400 years ago in Arabia the people were living very much in fear. They feared their neighbors. They feared other tribes. They even feared their idols. For this was the time before Islam. The Arabs were worshipping idols. In their ignorance they would bury their newly born daughters alive. As Islam began to spread among Arabs such cruel practices stopped. Islam taught love and peace. It taught kindness and respect.

Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) himself was a very kind and loving person. Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) treated every one, young and old, with kindness and respect.

Because Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) was spreading the word of Allah. And he was changing, for better, the lives of many Arabs and because some Arabs felt that by the teaching of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) their old idols were losing power they disliked Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) and planned to kill him. Every time they tried to kill him, they failed. This angered the enemies of Islam even more. So they began to harass him in every way they knew.

One old woman made a habit of throwing rubbish on Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) whenever he passed from her house. Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) had to pass that house daily on the way to the mosque. Even when the old woman threw rubbish on him, he would pass silently without showing any anger or annoyance. This was a regular, daily event.

One day when Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) was passing by the woman was not there to throw the rubbish. Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) stopped and asked the neighbor about her well-being. The neighbor informed the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) that the woman was sick on bed. The Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) politely asked permission to visit the woman. When allowed he entered the house, the woman thought that he had come there to take his revenge when she was unable to defend herself because of sickness. But the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) assured her that he had come to her, not to take any revenge, but to see her and to look after her needs, as it was the command of Allah that if any one is sick, a Muslim should visit him and should help him if his help is needed.

The old woman was greatly moved by this kindness and love of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). By the example of greatness of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), she understood that he was truly the Prophet of Allah and Islam was the true religion. She accepted Islam at once.



PROPHET MUHAMMAD (PBUH) BIOGRAPHY: THE HELPLESS IDOL


It was hardly three years since the people of Madina had embraced Islam and had started to worship Allah. The young boys in the city were given a job to eradicate the worship of idols. Wherever they saw an idol, they destroyed it and set fire to it.

One day, the youths came to know that Omar bin Janab, the chief of Bani Salma tribe, had still preserved his idol and worshipped it. In order to impress upon him the uselessness of worshipping an idol made of wood, they removed it from his place and threw it down a pit. The chief of Bani Salma tribe, on tracing the idol to where it was lying brought it back, washed it and kept it in its original place. But the next day again it was removed and thrown into the pit.

The chief of Bani Salma tribe was very much disturbed at this or the last he brought home this idol and cleaned it. He then put his sword around its neck and said to the idol: "If henceforth anybody comes to you, promptly take action and kill him with the sword."

On the next day, the idol was again missing. This time he found it tied to a dead body of a dog. There was no effect at all of the sword which he had tied around the neck of the idol. This incident made him lose faith in his man-made wooden idol. He abandoned the idol worship altogether. On becoming a Muslim, he uttered a poem as under:

"Alas O my idol! If you were my God, you would not have reached this stage and I would not have seen you in the pit along with a dead dog. I have now put my faith in the Almighty Allah, from Whom come all blessings. It is He Who has freed me from darkness of ignorance."

This is one of the examples of how the young Muslim volunteers of Medina helped the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) in putting an end to idol worship and spread the true message of Islam.


PROPHET MUHAMMAD (PBUH) BIOGRAPHY: THE ONE WHO SEEKS TO BE INDEPENDENT


One of the companions of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) once found himself in severe poverty. His wife advised him to go to the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) and request his help.

The man approached the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), but as soon as the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) eyes fell upon the man, he said:

If a person seeks something from me, I shall certainly grant it to him, but if he were to exhibit himself as being self-sufficient and free from want, Allah shall make him affluent.

Hearing this, the man said to himself, The Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) has intended me by this speech of his.

Without uttering a word, he returned home and narrated the incident to his wife.

His wife said, The Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is also human; explain your dilemma to him and see what he has to say.

The man returned to the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) for the second time but heard the same sentence from him and again came back home without saying a word.

When this was repeated for the third time, the man borrowed a pickaxe from one of his friends and set off towards the mountains. Throughout the day he worked hard to gather firewood, which he sold for some flour and that night, he and his wife had bread for dinner.

The next day, he worked harder and collected more firewood and this continued for several days till he was able to purchase a pickaxe for himself.

After some period, as a result of his hard work, he managed to purchase two camels and a slave, and slowly became one of the affluent ones.

One day, arriving before the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), he narrated to him the events of his life and the effect of his words, whereupon the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) responded:

I had said (before): "One who seeks to be independent (of others), Allah shall make him independent."


"One who seeks to be independent (of
others), Allah shall make him independent."
